    Tsk tsk tsk.... Nasa baba na lahat ng langis...Crank mo kaya muna unti unti para may umakyat na langis sa ibabaw. Tapos bago mo istart ng tuluyan i prime mo muna ang fuel system. May priming pump naman yan sa may fuel filter kung d ako nagkakamali. Check mo rin diesel sa fuel tank bka puro tubig na. Palitan mo kung ganun ang kaso. Habang tumatakbo, pag rough idling i pump mo lang nang ipump ang priming pump para mawal ang hangin sa linya.

    I once often left my pick-up stored for a month. Then when I come back, I just put back the battery and start the engine. Andar naman parati.

    One time I did not come back for more than two months. When I started the engine, it sounded terrible - like there was no oil in the engine. It sounded terrible for a few minutes. Akala ko nga nasira na ang engine ko. I noticed also that medyo mausok na.

    But I now use the vehicle more regularly and it still works fine.

    I would:

    1. Check the fuel first for moisture.
    2. Check fuel filter for sediment build up.
    3. Pump or prime fuel through filter.
    4. Heat up glow plug for more than usual.
    5. Crank it by giving it a few clicks not really starting.
    6. After a few cranks, let it start.
    7. Be sure to have a spare battery on hand.
