Starting... it barely turned over after being stored for winter. He found out subsequently that it now has bad compression. What should he do this Fall to prevent it from recurring next Spring? Ans... compression problem was caused by attempt to start on a still-very-cold-day after the car had been sitting for months... excessive fuel 'washed down' oil on cylinder walls and weakened compresssion... in future, just disconnect the battery and wait for a warmer day to restart for first time.
