Customer Question
Would you please tell...

Would you please tell me where the fuel shutoff valve is on a Starcraft 2000Sport 2013 20 footer

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

Plenty of gas (new), gage shows half full, showing 12 volts on meter, engine turns over but doesn’t catch. 1st run since pulled from storage. Found battery disconnected so checked manuals’ storage instructions

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?

Not that I can currently think of

There is not a fuel cut off valve on your boat.

What is the make and model of your engine?

Thanks,

When you turn the key to the On position, do you hear the fuel pump run?
