There could be one of a dozen things wrong with the engine, or maybe there is nothing wrong and you are not starting it the right way. I don't and won't and can't now any of that unless I start asking you a bunch of questions back. I do not want to waste your time, and I do not want you to waste my time, do you want to continue, or did you want to quit?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
quit.
