    Could be something as simple as a pump bearing locked up.... could be something really bad, like a dropped valve train. If it's under warranty, consider taking it in.

    If you are concerned with them denying your warranty due to your metal washers, have Jerry put in some ceramics for the warranty claim. No need to feed the claims adjusters!

    think the battery coulda dropped a cell?? it's sudden, interupts power, and won't take a boost.

    edit: did you check the pump for debris? stick, rope...etc.?

    The connections at the relay could cause it not to jump start Try taking out the plugs and turning it over.

    It sounds electrical to me. Possibly shorting somewhere like a relay thats corroded.

    yes, but if the cell dropped it won't charge or jump, no matter how hard you try. check cables, relays, and connections, if not I would get a different (preferably new) battery and try it.

    you can take the plugs out and rotate the engine by hand, then you know if it is locked or not before you buy a battery.

    I would pull the spark plugs out. If the tips of the spark plugs are smashed you probably dropped a valve.

    Here is a thread on a dropped valve
