I was leaving my house everything started fine. When I turned left to go up a hill, my rear end lost traction and started to slide out but before I could get it back under control the engine died and now won't start.
Do you

Hi,

Is the starter engaging to crank the engine? If it is, we need to start by checking for spark and fuel to the engine.

To get started, take a look through this link. It discusses the most common causes of a crank no start. See if it helps.

Next, I need you to try a little trick. See if the engine starts for a couple of seconds and stalls if you use starting fluid. If it does, then it is a fuel-related issue. If it doesn't, then it's likely ignition related.

To confirm if it is an ignition issue, follow this link:

Let me know what you find or if you have other questions.

Take care,

Joe
