I got my license taken away back in Oct. and ever since then I have not been able to drive my legend. Well the car hasnt been turned on in about 3 months. The Battery has gone dead and the Rotors have rusted over. Since the weather is nice I want to take her out again but im afraid to get her started again after she sat for so long. What should I do to get her juices flowing again without causing more harm to her?

i don't remember exactly what you should do after it has been sitting for a while, but i remember the manual talks about this and tells you what you should do if the car has been sitting for a long time.

for future if you're not going to drive for a while you should at least run the car every once in a while, even if you're not going to drive just to get all the juices flowing

3 Months is nothing....If you want to be on the safe side:

1. Charge the battery fully, so you dont kill the alternator
2. Change the oil/filter (water in the oil from condensation)
3. Check tire pressure, don't worry about the the rust - it will come right off the rotor when you drive it.
4. Start her up and run it for about 15 minutes (burn off any excess water) with the AC on
5. If you can drive her until you can fill her up with some fresh gas

Wash & detail and she will be running like new.
