Hi my name is ***** ***** thank you for using Just Answer. How long has it been since the motor last ran ? . The 3 things a motor needs to run is spark , fuel and compression . Have you hired removing the air filter and putting a tiny bit of gas in where it goes so it will get directly into the cab and see if it will start momentarily?
