Best Answer

Spray some carburetor cleaner into the intake. If it starts then the problem is ignition related.i have just learned that it could also be a very dirty air intake filter, if the filter is clogged combustion cannot take place.jay

It could either be a starter gone bad or it could be a bad cylinoid. If the starter motor does not spin that would cause the engine not to turn over. The best thing is to buy the cylinoid first then if that does not work replace the starter motor. It never hurts to replace both.
