    Spark wont start. Help.

    I have 2016 spark with 3 hours on it.

    I just bought this machine, without starting it. it was in a heated garage. I just changed the oil in it, removed the top lid to check everything. Now the machine will not start, it turns, its getting fuel (checked the spark plugs, plus i can smell it) If i cover the exhaust hole with my hand the machine catches and dies right away. What can this be? If i spin the engine the check engine goes on and goes away if i take the key out. Almost sounds like a vacuum leak.

    Any way of reading the code without candoo? Or anyone has any suggestions?

    Okay update. the machine sucked up a rope and turned off. It has never started since. AS i just found out. I removed drive shaft and pump no damage, still not starting. it catches for half a second but never starts.

    Now it is time for all good techs to throw a new set of plugs in.

    Fully charge batterys , if not change plugs , do you have the extension harness for connect the engine with the upper deck while is open ? That help to cranking the engine and try things

    speaking of extension harness..what's the ticket on that..they are pretty pricey..but I HAVE to have one for next season..any third party products out there yet?..those seem to be some awful expensive connectors...

    given that 4 tec plugs can "look good" yet not start an engine, Its a pretty cheap bet.
