The manual should say how to purge it. If not contact a dealer. Is there an external filter?

My owners manual dosn't say how,just that if it dosen't respond or makes a noise, it may need to be done.No,there is no external filter,just the screen filter inside the filler cap under the spring,which I removed and cleaned and replaced as per the instructions in the manual.It probably is in the service manual,but no got one.New local dealer said he didn't know either but would try and find out.

Bcarr,
Jack the drive wheels up off of the ground and then turn the wheels 1-2 revolutions by hand. Then start it up and it shoud work.
