    Leaking injector symptoms

    What are symptoms of leaking injector?

    On my 07 wake I have strong gass smell in engine bay after ski sitting over night. Also I can't get to max RPM's. other than that ski runs strong, no problems with idle, starting always, smooth engine operation.


    The two symptoms - gas smell and not able to go past 7700 RPM even in 60F water even with seat off makes me think that there is a fuel leak somewhere. The SC is fresli rebuild, the oil si changed at the begeining of the season...

    no gas in the hull, no signs of leak in the hoses....

    I was thinking if the injectors leak but don't know if the symptoms I have lead to injectors.

    Please help!


    thank you

    difficult to get started is very common when an injector is hung open.

    on mine, a little harder to start, ran rough for a little then cleared up, once stopped it would start right up, but wait a minute or two and it would be hard to start and run rough. found the leaking injector, changed it problem gone

    Top of the gas tank(regulator). Front of the hull is separated enough to where fluid will sit up there.

    Is it possible to have the smell and lost RPM from there?

    From what other members posted it is unlikely tohave injector leak so this is stil mostery for me.

    How I can check if what tou described is my problem?

    Thanks

    Run the ski with the seat off and look at the top of the tank, and the fuel rail while you're at it, for spray. Btw a stuck open injector will also do that but you'll smell it in the exhaust.
