I have a 2014 Viking. It was running at an idle while moving stuff from the bed and it died. Now it turns over but will not start. There is compression in the cylinder and good spark on plug and fuel getting to cylinder. Any suggestions?

Had just been driving, it was idling for about 1-2 minutes and just died. It has not started since. And there are no fault codes showing on the display

Check the fuses? You said it has fuel how do you know that, and can you here the fuel pump run when you first turn the key on?

All fuses are good, fuel pump comes on and runs. Spark plug is wet when I pull it out

Hmmm maybe something is blocking air intake? I had mice at one point store acorns in the air filter housing.

I have pulled the air filter, I can feel the air being sucked in while turning the engine over.

That's strange, if it's got good spark it should be good to go, is it strong blue spark? Change the plug anyway in case it's failing under compression. Otherwise you are going to need the diagnostic tool to see what is going on. In case some electrical component has died.

It was orange and a little blue, I ordered a new ngk plug for it today. If that doesn’t solve it I’ll check the valve settings and timing I guess. Idk what else to try....

No you wouldn't think that the timing chain had jumped, and if it was valves and timing it would still cough and splutter most likely. Sounds like plug though, I've seen them spark out of the motor but not spark under compression. Maybe the couple of minutes idling finished it off. A lot of the codes don't show on the MFD either.

Maybe the injector is dumping too much fuel?

I had to switch out my injector as it was staying open and flooding. Cheers
