    Trouble starting 3.3

    Hi, when I try to start my 3.3 enigine, I hear a put-put-put, then just the sound of the starter motor whirring. When I press the button on the EZ Start again, the same thing happens. Does anybody know what might be wrong. From some research I saw that it might be a OWB, but I am not sure.

    You most likely need to clean or replace the OWB.

    Yep sounds like the owb has gone.
    Get a new one and it will fix the issue
    I've tried cleaning them but it really doesn't work all that well. it fixes it for like a couple start ups and then it goes back to doing it again
