49.5cc JCL gas scooter will not start and SHUT OFF WHILE DRIVING 40 mPH!

I was driving when all of a sudden my scooter came to a complete stop and shut off when i was on a main road.  I pulled over and ever since, the pup wont start up.  Anyone have any ideas and if I can fix this myself instead of paying 90$ diagnostics and hrly rate to get it fixed???
I also have 1,200 miles on this and bought it only two months ago+   I recently changed the oil and gear oil and possibly put too much oil in.  I have no idea why this is not starting up.  SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!!!  Also i noticed on the left side on the rear tire there is a sticky residue dark color.  Other than that their are no obvious leaks or anything.  Please HELP ASAP!

    I'm part of the club. Exact thing with 1200km and just changed oil. This is a chineese scooter 125cc Huatian. After I changed oil, the next day took it to work and in my way back I heard some explotions from the exhaust pipe, then I was lucky that it left me there 5min from home so I didn't walk that much. Could it been worse but I also need help!
    I changed the spark plug and still the same. I checked the lines of the carburator and filter and it seems that its passing gas fine.
    I will check the spark from the cable that connects to the spark plug and I haven't checked air filters but I assume the air filter can't be that dirty since I dont really use the scooter that much.
    Any help I appreciate.

2008 GMC Sierra pickup. Driving and all of a sudden it shut off then turned back on; the doors unlocked then locked again. Now it won't do anything. Checked the oil and it was empty - no oil at

Running with no oil is death for the motor ( Seized). When the alternator stopped working because the engine stopped the door lock control opened the door locks as it said you were below the required speed to have them locked

During my traveling 40 miles each day to work and back, my 1991 Accord simply stops running while going down the road. I have to pull off the road and continue trying to start it, sit and wait, sometimes...

Have you replaced the main power relay? It's what causes the 90's Accords to just suddenly shut off and not want to start back for a few. Also, how old is your distributor? It's another problem part on those Accords, that has all these sensors inside that go bad.
