Hi,

In most cases, a crank no-start condition is caused by either a loss of fuel or an ignition spark. If the starter motor is turning the engine, here is what I need you to do:

See if the engine starts with starting fluid. If it does and then stalls, we will know its fuel related. If there is no change, I need you to check for spark to the spark plugs.

Here is a link that explains how to check for spark:

Try this and let me know what you find.

Take care,

Joe
