need to get more info!!
please let me know
to get it started do you press the accelerator down a bit to get it running?
Let's try this. You will need some carburetor cleaner. Take the throttle body off and clean off the black residue built up. This residue can reduce air at start up and cause starting issues.
Let me know if that make the starting much better.
When you open the door like first thing does the fuel pump run for 3 secs?
Does the issue occurs when it is damp or wet weather?
I wonder this. Ignition switch. Does the blower motor work when it does not start
