have you checked your idle? if the clip has moved along a bit it may not start. my engine died on me yesterday and it would start but then straight away die showing the oil on the dash so i pulled up into the garage and put oil in it but the problem was the idle clip had moved and that's why it wouldn't run hope it helped
