Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.

You and I need to determine if our problem is fuel related, or if it is ignition related. If you have some carburetor cleaner in a can, spray a small burst directly into your carburetor, to see if your engine will start up and run briefly.

Expert:  Donald replied 9 days ago.

If your engine starts up and runs briefly, we will focus on your carburetor. If your engine does not start up after using the carburetor cleaner, we will focus on your ignition.
