Hello

if its sat for 2 years its possible that the gas in the tank is very stale

was the fuel tank drained of the old stuff before filling with fresh?

also is the battery new? as unless its been sat on a battery conditioner all this time then it too will have deacyed

also what engine size is the car and how many miles are on it?
