    Nitro Sport struggle

    Recently I took my nitro sport in to be looked at because it wouldn’t start. They said it was a leaking fuel tank so I had them fix it. I brought it home and tried to start it with a new glow plug and fuel. Won’t even start. The guy said it has low compression but it seems to be fine. What are the signs of low compression. Is that why my motor isn’t starting? I even charged my ez start battery and it still wouldn’t start. What do I do now?

    You might try a glow ignitor instead of just relying on the EZ start wand. I've had a wand that spun the engine over fine but didn't heat the glow plug. That's fairly common.
