Hi, I’m Cary and I’ll be helping you today.
Please understand that I can't smell, hear, or touch the vehicle, so patience is appreciated. Before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as needed, even after the rating..

If you have fire at the plugs and fuel it should start. At least for a moment if you spray starting fluid into the intake. Whet happened to start this problem?
