Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
This service said to expect an answer in 8 minutes and that was nearly an hour ago. Then asked for a call and nothing as of yet. Also said 2 mechanics were on line. So far this service is not meeting expectations.
Expert:  Steve replied 4 months ago.

your engine requires ONLY 3 tings to start and run.

- spark (timed ignition)

- fuel (proper air/fuel mixture)

- compression.

if you are sure you have spark and fuel, perform a compression test.

let me know what you find.
