I have a 1976 bmw 2002 that is all stock and the car was sitting for 4 years and now after I added a battery and tried to start it all I get is a clicking sound. Can some one tell me if it sounds like the starter or if the engine is lock. Any suggestions on what I can do?

If you can't, pour some kerosene down the spark plug holes, let it sit for a couple days and try again.

Get a 30mm socket put it on the crank pulley nut, use a breaker bar and extension and crank on that sucker.

Repeat as necessary until the engine turns over.

Dump the oil, replace the plugs and then try to start things.

clutch is rusted. try rocking it back and forth in gear and engaging/disengaging the clutch.

if it's multiple clicks, i vote the starter. before going to the trouble to change it (or refurb it) beat on the side of it with a stick (yeah, no kidding) ie a hammer handle, with firm taps and see if it doesn't come around.

best of luck with it

cylinder walls. If was the clutch, you could put the tranny in neutral.

we just drove a 02 600+ miles that hadn't been started in over 5 years. it made it to the gas station/carwash on the OLD GAS.

clean out the cylindrs with kerosene or crc first. then attempt to turn over. kerosene will take a day to seep past pistons. do this a few time's.

I had problems with a starter solinoid once, might want to chech there if you have no luck elsewhere
