Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

It you ran it until it stopped then you have most likely junked the machine. Does the engine still crank over? Have you done a compression check? Can you do a compression check? You need at least 90 psi in order for the machine to start and run, if it is under that then you will need to consider replacement.
