Check the gas to make sure it isn't bad. Consider a fuel treatment. Make sure the oil and coolant is good. When u start her let it idle for a good 10 mins so the seals and gaskets get up to temp and lubricated properly. Drive her easy for the next 50 miles. Check your oil and then get that old gas out of there haha.

Sounds good thanks for the advice, I noticed that when I revved her up a bit it was spewing rust colored water out my exhaust, any thoughts? Will it go away? I looked online and one site said it could b a head gasket which worries the s*it outta me

Rust is what happens to the inside of pipes when they set and don't get used for a while. Then when the condensation comes out its a rust color. That's my thoery and I'm sticking to it. Lol! Seriously that's what I would think.

Is it smoking too? If its not smoking I wouldn't worry about it. I think it will eventually clear out.
