You need to pull the glow plug out and see if its good visually; look at the coil in the hole in the bottom it should look like a spring unbroken. If you have a glow stick put it on the plug and see if it glows. If you can just replace the glow plug they go bad and it may still look fine.
you need to set your main carb needle to 3 turns out from closed.

Now with the glow plug out place a clean rag over the cylinder head where the plug came out of and use you starting wand to turn the motor over........the rag is there to keep fuel from spraying in your eyes. turn the motor for 5 seconds.

Next put the plug back in and gently tighten it down with an 8mm socket. Put your plug wire back on and try to start the engine for 3 seconds. If it starts up reves high then dies try this.
Put your finger over the exhaust and turn the motor over until you see gas go into the carb the remove your finger from the exhaust and continue to crank the motor for no more than 10 seconds.....she should start now. Adjust the carb according to the manual. Have fun.

I cant turn it

If it has just happened all of a sudden without no impacts, first of i would check the receiver & make sure steering servo is plugged in. Then test servo, could swop throttle with steering to see if still happens.

How to replace my a arm on my Jato 3.3? Is there a guide somewhere?

All the Traxxas manuals are on their site. Their manuals are good and made for the beginner. Have you already purchased the part? Most hobby stores will be glad to replace the arm. I owned a Hobbytown USA and we showed customers how to replace the part themselves.
