99 Accord Engine just spins,??

Dealing with a car thats been sitting for a few years. My buddy asked me (cause i'm adventurous and have tools, lol ) to help him get his old car running. He had already installed a new battery and had started it up. He drove it 5 miles or so to his new house. And had run it a couple of days in his driveway, 15 min or so at a time. I was going to come over and help him change the oil look at plugs, ATC. Now mind you this fuel was at least 3 years old in the tank so that was on our list to drain and replace as well. The day before I was going to go work with him on it he said it would not start the engine just turn over. When I got there, upon further inspection, the engine does indeed just turn, from The Sound I had heard a broken timing belt in the past and it sure sounded like that. I took off the timing cover, and the belt appears to be intact and turning normally when attempting to start the engine. Sure sounds like a timing belt issue, but just for kicks and went ahead and pulled the spark plugs, and drops a small bit of oil down in the cylinders. Still no sounds of compression, no chugga chugga chugga, just a steady whining sound. Anyone ever run across this? It is a 99 Accord V6 by the way. Hoping to have a direction to go when I go back to look at the car. I have a video with sound, I will try to post here as well. Or i can email? Thanks in advance for any thoughts or comments.

Re: 99 Accord Engine just spins,??

I had a similar situation and mine was the ignition switch.

Might not be the issue...just throwing it out there.

Maybe check main relay?
