After reading your message, I charged the battery during the day. When I got home, I tried starting the engine. The starter cranked ok, so I knew the
ignition system was working, but it wouldn't start on several attempts. There was a smell of gas, but we couldn't find any wet areas along the chassis or on the ground. My son-in-law tried it also and the same result,
with that same slight smell of gas. If it means anything, my grandson said he hit the pothole with the left front wheel. We didn't find any loose wires or connections under the vehicle. Is there anything that would cut out
the ignition system that we should look for? We are limited in the time we will have to work on this over the weekend, but should we start looking at the electrical system, at some particular circuit?
By the way, the battery was low, so I charged it before doing the above, just in case the original problem was because of that, but it looks like that's not what was wrong.
