Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
What are you working on?
What is the model number on the engine?
Is this a 2 stroke or a 4 stroke? What year is it?
OKay its a 2 stroke. Is this tiller control, or remote control with a key switch?
Is the emergency stop switch clip in place?
Okay the next step is to either check spark output with a timing light, or see if it will start with starting fluid. Can you do that?
okay keep me posted
Hello. My name is Tan.
You have to consider what it will cost you to take it to a mechanic. They won't look at it today anyway. We have nothing to do with billing we only try to help customers with their engine issues. I don't know what you were expecting but we are allot cheaper than a marine service department that will charge you working on your engine whether they fix it or not. I guarantee we can help you fix your issue but you have to do the checks we ask to find the cause of your engine issue.
Now would you like some help?
Good luck with your issue. Happy 4th.
Because the mechanic is giving you information on how to trouble shoot your engine issue. If we didn't get paid for talking to the customer why would we be here on a 4th of July?
See if you can even find a shop open on the 4th of July.
The mechanics aren't even guaranteed they will get paid as they get paid when the customer positively rates us. So till the customer rates we get nothing the company keeps the deposit.
Have a happy 4th.
