Hello. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. How long has it been since your engine last started up, and performed to your satisfaction?

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

Have you checked to see if you are getting spark to your spark plug?

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

If you have some carburetor cleaner in a can (preferably), or some starter fluid, spray a small burst directly into your carburetor, to see if your engine will start and run briefly.
