Won't turn on
Yes you absolutely can! What you are looking at, where you're sticking the gas key into, is called a ball or Dante Valve. These gas valves have two sizes that the ball could be. They are either 3/8" or 1/4" in size on the end. I'm betting 10:1 the valve you have is a 1/4" because your gas key is spinning around and is for a 3/8" valve. If you go to this website http://www.cunninghamliving.com/fireplaceloglighterskeysandvalves_1.aspx and I would suggest buying the 8" or 12" long gas key you should be fine. The reason I suggest buying the 8" or 12" gas key is because you have stone on the face and the ball might be recessed in there quite a ways.The gas keys that Cunningham sells, or if you have an Ace Hardware or search for "Dante Gas Key", they will be what we sell called a "universal gas key". These universal gas keys will work on either a 3/8" or 1/4" ball valve.
Now, if after getting a universal gas key it is still spinning then you need to get a hold of a plumber. It could be that the ball valve is stripped and that is why it is spinning on the ball valve.
So try the cheaper less expensive fix first and you should be fine. If that still doesn't fix it then get a hold of a local plumber and tell him you might have a stripped gas ball valve and it might need to be replaced. Hope this helps you.

The first thing I would check is fuel pressure. This type of fuel injection requires a minimum fuel pressure in order to operate. If fuel pressure is as little as one psi below minimum the vehicle will not start. You can try squirting a couple of shots of carb spray into the air snorkel while somebody cranks the engine over. If the engine starts and then dies you now you fpdeffinetely have a fuel issue. If the engine still won't start check for spark. Let me know what you find. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!
