    Not running correctly

    My 06 GTX LTD is not running right. I took it out last eve. and it surged a lot from about 5000 to 7700. I first thought that the SC clutch was probably slipping but using the finger check I can not turn the SC wheel through the intake hole. It did not seem to be mis firing on the water but on the trailer it seems like it might be mis firing. Any suggestions on what to check? The plugs look fine but they probably have 50-75 hrs. on them. Do you think that likely is the problem? It has steel washers in the SC and the ski has 154 hrs. on it. Thanks for any suggestions.

    how long has it been sitting...could be spark knocking due to bad fuel...do all the plugs look the same...could have an eletrical miss under a load...high resistance in plug wires...just some thoughts

    It's only been setting since 7/4 and my other ski was filled with fuel at the same time and it's fine. It acts more like a fuel problem than a spark problem but I know how that goes. Thanks.

    Hi, I put a different set of plugs in it and it fixed it! That made my day. How many hours do most of you change your plugs on the 4 tech? Thanks.

    Could be some moisture in the gas, this ethanol fuel gets moisture pockets.
