Hello, my name is***** you for allowing me to assist you today.
Pull the spark plugs to see if you are getting spark to them and if they are wet with fuel. If you are getting spark, check your fuel for water. Test the compression of the engine. Make sure that it is over 100 PSI on all cylinders.
If it is low, the engine may not be able to draw enough fuel into the engine to start it.
