Vespa ciao won't work

Thomas Rozeske /

Hi, i have a Vespa ciao that has worked for my entire life with no problems ever. It just recently stopped working, what happened is when i started the moped, it ran fine but wouldn't get above 10 mph so i stopped it and it never ran again. It has compression and i just replaced the spark plug. If you know what is wrong or have an idea please send me something.

Use Freds guide in the articles and check to see if you have spark. If you do then I would take the carb off and give it a really good cleaning. bruce

How many miles does it have on the engine? Could be a clogged muffler. Try removing it and see if it will start and run faster. Will be a bit noisy so warn the neighbors.

Could also be a blown base gasket.

Also as Bruce suggested use Fred's giude and go through the trouble shooting step by step and assume nothing!
