fuel issue / change filters or run it and will it burn the water out?
Hello, I have looked around but could not find my answer. Had water in my gas tank. Seadoo RXP. I have now pumped the gas tank out, but do I need to change the filters on the pump? If so, do I need to change internal, or external, or both, or none... I have looked around and located the filters for the pump, but is it really necessary to change them out, will the absorb or hold water? Am I better to just run it now with good clean gas and dont change filters on the baffle/ pump unit because of the low hours? A dealer wanted to sell me a new pump... I laughed! $600-700

Do a search for fuel filters, they're only like 10-15$ for each and you can order them from summit

Are you sure..... I looked them up based on my pump and they are not the style that just goes inline smilar to autozone or napa. Will the filters absorb water or does the water pass through and the engine burns it?

I ordered in an external filter (located on the bottoM of the pump assembly) I will change it this weekend and try it to see if this is restricting fuel due to water soaked filter? I will post results

The in tank filters are plastic very fine screen and if the water was clean it will pass threw, on the older models with the bolts around the sending unit

airtex 220 and 242 filters are direct replacements.

I pulled pump, drained tank, dried with paper towels to ensure that all water was removed from the bottom. Clipped on a new filter, the old one looked pretty nasty. I put it all back together and it still is doing the same problems and I had a hard time getting it started after sitting for 3-4 hours. Took about 30 seconds total t get it to pop off. I am going to change knock sensor. Clean MAP, and then swap injectors if needeed....

Some idiot did put water in my gas tank while in storage at the marina. I did clean all the fuel components. I had a repetitive knock sensor issue. After all my problems, It pushed the head gasket for some unknown reason. All engine parts were spotless, the engine was getting water in it. Just an update. Danny rebuilt my engine and I have 15 hours on it since.
