Customer Question

Car won't start. I hear the fuel pump engage, and the starter engages. But the engine will not turn over. It removed the air filter and sprayed starter fuild into the carborator and did not start. The car has started in the past with no problem. It sat for 3 weeks this time and didn't start. There is 1/4 tank of gas in the car.
