    Seadoo GTX Won't Start

    I have a 1997 Seadoo GTX that won't start. I use to be able to start it by putting fogging oil in the head but now it won't start at all. I'm not sure if this is related but water got into the head because I accidentially ran the water hose without the jetski running, but I did purge the water out. But since then I've had to use fogging oil to start it until it stopped starting at all. Any ideas???

    if you got water into the cylinders because of the hose, you blew a head gasket. Meaning, that you probobly are sucking in air/water through the head gasket, creating a lean mixture, or just because the water entering the cylinders from the cooling jacket will not burn. Sounds like you need to pull the head and see what happened, but stop trying to run it before you burn up a cylinder.
