Construction and Road Equipment repair questions? Ask a mechanic ASAP
Thanks for asking your question. I will try and help you out.
Did the engine just not start one day? Or did it shut down while running?
Thanks for the information.
It sounds like you have bled the fuel good. Since it will not start. I would first suspect a shutdown solenoid problem. I see this a lot. I would first check and make sure the solenoid is getting power. It has two wires and is on top of the fuel system. If it has power you could have a bad solenoid. To test just remove the solenoid. If the engine starts. The solenoid is bad. To shut it off just use a screwdriver to push down on the lever inside the fuel system.
Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
I see you had opened another question. If removing the solenoid did not allow the engine to start. I would suspect the fuel system has failed. I have seen this many times. If you see fuel coming out of the bolt holes. This means the fuel system has failed. I am sorry. I wish I had better news. The fuel system would need to be removed and rebuilt or replaced. I am sorry. I wish I had better news.
