Hi,

Based on your description, it sounds like either you lost fuel or spark to the engine. Here is what I need you to try:

First, see if the engine starts for a couple of seconds using starting fluid. If it does and then stalls, we know its fuel related.

If there is no change with starting fluid, then I need you to check for spark to the plugs. Here is a link that explains how to do this:

Try this and let me know the results. Also, let me know if you have other questions.

Take care,

Joe
