Fuel pump is 2 years old. Could it be the relay? Fuel filter was replaced yesterday

Check for spark to the plugs! If none most likely fix is have the distributor assembly replaced. Can 'carefully' pour a little bit of your lawn mower gas, from a cup, into the throttle body and see if it will start. Just a little gas! Then just turn the key to start NO THROTTLE! IF it tries to start fuel problem, IF not spark problem! BE CAREFUL. Or get some help.

Complete distributor!! If no spark. Need a mechanic or car savvy person to replace it. This is cheaper than componets to rebuild it yourself!
