My lawn mower engine will not start. After many tries I got it to start twice and it died after a few seconds. The fuel line is clear and full of gas. The primer bulb is brand new. When I push the primer bulb all I hear is air getting sucked in (I recall the sound of liquid in the past). I suspect that the silver bulb between the primer and the fuel line may be the issue. What is that part called and could it cause this problem?
