My car has been sitting with out being turned on for about 5 years. I could not find parts. I was starting just fine before the last time it was started. I finally found the parts I needed, it was a pipe that goes from the water pump to the thermostat housing. Replace both. I can hear the fuel pump but only after I crank the engine. When in the run position I cannot hear it. I could not hear it at all before. Then I applied direct voltage and I heard it run. Now I can hear it after I crank the engine. I changed the spark plugs, cleaned the connections and the distributor. New spark plugs, after a few attempts to start it I removed the spark plugs, plug 1 & 3 looked good, 2 looked OK had some carbon spots, 4 was completely black. All the spark plugs have a spark. I checked each spark plug for spark with the tester in the video, I put the black Styrofoam behind the tester so the spark is visible.

Mitsubishi Carisma From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Mitsubishi Carisma is a large family car produced for the European market by Mitsubishi from 1995 to 2004. The model name was derived from a combination of the English car and the Greek kharisma, meaning "divine gift".
It was co developed with Volvo, sharing its chassis with the first generation of the Volvo S40, and built at the NedCar factory in Born, Netherlands, which the two companies co owned at the time. Over 350,000 were built during its production run. The car was judged to be a reliable, low cost vehicle but lacked visual appeal and competed by price and size in two very competitive markets without a strong selling point.
