Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question.

Are you saying the engine cranks but does not start or are you saying the engine does not crank over at all?

Would you be willing to speak on the phone?

Does the engine have spark while cranking?

If so, does it run on starting fluid?
