Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

I apologize but I do not have much info here to go on, I need info such as make and model number, history such as it has been sitting or it was running and then would not start, etc.

For now all I can say is check the basics, air removed from fuel system bleed off, check fuel for water, oil level/pressure, fuel pressure, compression. then we will have more to go on or that will locate the problem.

Thank you!
- Joe
