    Possible a dead Engine ? Please help

    Hi guys, I have a 2008 GTX Limited 215. I went today on the water with it and after 5 minutes .. I took it for a spin let it idle for 20 seconds and then engine cut off. I tried starting but the engine doesn't seem to wanna cranck up,. It kinda wants to try for 1 sec and nothing happends. Its not even cracking properly. It seems like something its stuck ..don't let it crank up.

    What do you guys think it can be the issue ? is my engine dead ? or the supercharger broke in it and got to the engine ? What should I try myself first .. I don't want to take it to the dealer as I dont have many good dealers around...

    I tried giving a boost but still nothing. I tried to start it with my second key... nothing.. Can it be the starter or something... I mean if the engine would,ve blow or the supercharge it should've make a noise and not on idle right ? I have no error codes on the display..

    I want to fix it badly asap as the summer just started.

    Thanks a lot.

    take the plugs out and see if any of them are crushed would be a good starting point.

    +1 yeah you may just have a rope or something wrapped up around the drive shaft and impeller.

    I took a look under the grill and I did not see anything in there. I might have to the the jet pump out to take a better look. I have posted this video up. Can it be a starter or some electric issue ? I took all the spark plugs out and replaced them with new ones but its the same issue.
