Good morning, my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
The fume detector will go off if there are any fumes of any kind in the engine compartment, not just the smell of raw gas. So if there is an exhaust gas leak, or electrical fire, it will go off. The fume detector however will not shut the engine down. If the starter will not spin the engine over there are a couple of things you need to do in order to start. First, check voltage at the starter while somebody else holds the key to start and energizes the start. Voltage needs to be 9.5V or better. If it is low, check voltage at the batteries. And then check to make sure the battery cables are not loose, corroded, or burnt.
If voltage is 9.5V or better. The next step would be to remove the spark plugs and see if the engine will spin over by hand. You would want to see if the engine is hydrolocked or blown before buying a new starter for it.
That is where you need to start. Does that make sense? Do you have any further questions on the issue?
I think that should do it. But I work for tips so I do want to make sure you are happy with my service before you go. If you do have a further question on the issue by all means feel free to ask. If not, Just in case you do not understand the way the website works (and some folks do not). You do have to put forth a positive rating in order for it to credit me for helping you. When ratings are not done, the website simply keeps your deposit and they will not credit me. Please let me know if you run into any problems or errors when trying to do it. If you do have a problem, or if you can not see the ratings box which is at the top of the screen. Please reply back "I rate Jason's service _______" and fill in the blank.
Questions do not close out, so if you have to come back later on with follow up questions to the issue you still can even after doing a rating.
No problem, there are no time limits here, just reply back when you are ready and we can go from there.
