    A little help!

    ok so the jet ski (2005 rxt) was worked on and ran ok for a little than all of a sudden wont run! It sounds like the spark plug wires were plugged into the wrong cylinder (that isnt true because it ran a little to begin with). Because it only has 34 hours on it i dont wanna mess with it too much but anything simple i can do?

    start with the simple stuff. change plugs, they have a tendency to foul and wont throw a code...

    Fresh plugs. You can get them at O'Reily's for just over 2.00 each. DCPR8E is the ones you want. Start there and see what happens.

    Ill change plugs i guess it could do that but have you ever heard an engine where you wired the wires out of order? Thats my best description. But ill start with plugs and compression test and also it says sensor on it, i appreciate the help

    Although i havent looked at it yet and am going to do what you all have recommended to em so far i have come to the conclusion that it might either be a bent valve or the timing chain somehow is now off. How hard is it to get to the timing chain?

    please someone keep helping lol how hard is it to fix a bent valve or replace one, i mean how hard to get to cars (the only thing i have experience with) are fairly easy in older vehicles. and what about timing chain, similiar and less than valve but same region. thanks

Any ideas?? thanks!
