    If you hold the accelerator all the way to the floor, it shuts off the fuel to the engine. In cold weather sometimes they flood very easy. If there's any chance it could be flooded(if you smell fuel) hold the accelerator to the floor till it starts and then let off of it after it clears out. Thanks for writing back. Let me know what you find. Phil
