Default Engine wont start problem

Yesterday, I started my engine (using a starter box), it idled for 5 seconds, and then died. Now everytime i try to use it it will start up with the glow plug ignitor but die as soon as I take it off. Thinking i had flooded it, I did the unflood procedure and tryed again later, but this didnt work.

What could be the problem?

Engine broken in yet? A new glowplug will solve your problem.

Default Bad Luck

I hate it when that happens, three things to check:

1. The Glow Plug is still firing
2. Your Carburetor settings are correct... adjust the idle screw!
3. Your fuel filter is clogged, CLEAN IT!
