    vide doesnt work on my iphone..its grainy and no sound.. hrmm

    did you try draining the gas and adding fresh? does it stutter while its trying to turn over or does it just start to go, pop and stop? if you hold the start button will it keep trying to start?

    I doubt the gas is the issue.

    If you have a major issue and you keep trying to start it, you're only going to make it worse...
