1. HOW'S YOUR GAS?
Don't laugh, you'd be surprised how many folks don't check to make sure they have gas in the tank. Old gas (like any left in the tank from last season) should be drained and replaced with fresh gas. The addition of Ethanol additive in the gas we purchase at our local service stations is playing havoc with small engines. It breaks down faster than the non ethanol gas and loses it's viscosity sooner. This additive in the gas will foul your carburetor making your engine harder to start and operate like it's designed to do.
2. DID YOU CHECK YOUR OIL?
Many new engines have a low oil sensor that will prohibit your engine from starting if there isn't sufficient oil in the crankcase.
3. IS YOUR SPARK PLUG WIRE MAKING A GOOD CONNECTION TO YOUR SPARK PLUG?
A fouled spark plug or a loose spark plug wire connection will prohibit your engine from getting the necessary spark needed to ignite the gas in your cylinder wall prohibiting the engine from starting.
