Hi, my name is***** are doing the right thing by pulling the tank and cleaning it. If the tank is rusting inside you need to seal it with an epoxy sealant. Click here for a good tank sealer.

Once you get the tank sealed you need to check the fuel pump and replace it if needed along with the fuel filter. This car uses the Bosch CIS fuel injection system. Chances are you will need to replace the warm up regulator and the fuel distributor. These parts do not usually survive sitting for so long with old fuel. For the spark plugs you need Bosch part #7905. The ignition wires are Bosch part #09 259.
