I don't know how old old is, but a compression check would be a good place to start. If all the compression is the same, start by rebuilding the carb, new plugs and wires and points and condensor in an older distributor. That's all there is.

On some modern cars, the ECM controls everything from timing to the fuel pump. Many others are not as reliant on it though. It depends on what type of car you have but if it's 2007 or newer, I doubt it would even turn over. If it's older and there's an issue with the ECM, you might notice it not to running as smoothly.

First, you should make sure it is the used car you want. Second, ask questions to find out if anything is wrong with the car. Third, test drive to make sure the car runs smoothly.
