Hi all- my Bus wont start!!
I need help- I live in Central MI area- I have a 97 or 98 Tc 2000 ( title says 98 but has 97 dashboard and mechanical 8.3) rear engine TC. We have had the bus 2 years, has always been trouble free- starts at -2 below runs great no smoke 200K, allsion 3060. Anyway it has sat for about 4 months ( we use as a farm coordination unit in summer ( sits plugged in not ran) Went to start it- cranks will not start NOT even any smoke like it has no fuel (1/2 tank)!!
I have read other article on Google and others start then stop. Mine will not start at all- only cranks. This bus usually starts after the most 3 cranks (2 seconds in dead winter after sitting a month.
We are planning a trip in 2 weeks ( great - bus wont start) I am a long way from a shop so Towing is going to break me just to get to a shop
Anyway PLEASE HELP
