    Question 1998 Seadoo GTI long warm up

    Just bought my first PWC 1998 Seadoo GTI. Starts easy, idles fine but takes 5 to 10 minutes of warm up before it takes off. Once warm, runs great. I can hold throttle down and it creeps along with a sudden speed burst then back to creeping. This repeats until it accelerates then runs fine

    I have reviewed a number of posts on PWC's that bog down but not one that bogs down until warm. I plan to replace gas lines and clean filters.

    Could this be something else?

    It has been close to 1 month since I posted my first question on Greenhulk. I have yet to receive a reply. I am going to move to another site where people may care to help a new ski owner.

    Good luck.

    good luck finding hand holding on another forum..the reason nobody responded I believe is that you identified the problem. Most 90's model seadoos with gray fuel lines run into some variant of this problem during the season.

    Thanks for the confirmation of what I thought. For now new plugs and a can of Seafoam seems to have at least allowed me to delay the gas line replacement and carb kits till winter.

    skip the gas line for now if you must, but at the least pull the fuel filters out of the carb and clean it seafoam can't dissolve the crud that is likely built up in there. you might be able to pull that off without even taking the carb off the engine....
