good morning my name is ***** ***** I will assist

the first thing that comes to mind is a fuel pump which is a common failure.

try spraying some carb cleaner into the air filter and see if it starts and dies.

you can check the fuel pressure with a gauge. if you do not have one, you can rent one at a parts store.
