Possible fuel delivery issue

My wife's 2006 up and dies the other day and I managed to get it started for a few minutes but it died when I throttled it up and hasn't been able to start since. Got spark. Been a little over a week since I messed with it. Sitting at work thinking about I remembered a little line that I now think might be the impulse line being loose last fall causing it to run poorly unless the choke was on. When I pushed the line back on or should I say when I wiggled it the thing would run good. I haven't checked and can't from here, but is it possible this line has come off and is causing my grief?

Sounds like you have a clogged jet in the carb. You might try opening the drain on the carb bowl to see if the bowl has fuel. If it doesnít, you have a fuel line problem. If you do, you have a carb problem..
