    Stx12F stranded us

    We're down in Panama City, we have 2 skis and have rode every day this week today after a couple miles it was hard to start. Like it was flooded, opened the throttle and it fired up. Tried it several times, it seemed fine.
    Rode about 8 miles away and spent a few hours, then it wouldn't and still won't start. Towed it back, that sucked. Took for ever, most of a tank of fuel.
    Ski cranks fine, tach comes up while cranking. It has fuel to the injectors. Too much pressure to hold with ur thumb.
    squeezed the return and still won't fire.
    Pulled one plug, looked ok and sparked when cranking.

    Now what, limited tools on vacation.

    I read your guide, very nice. I pulled all the plugs, they looked dry. I grounded them and cranked the motor. They all sparked. I unhooked and checked the wiring at the ECM and injector harness. Both looked ok. I decided to put plugs back in and check an injector for pulses. The darn thing started on 3 cylinders. Put that wire back on and now it fires up fine. It did misfire for a few seconds until I revved it a little. Now starts and runs fine.

    So was it plugs, pulled and cranked the motor cleared it out??
    Wiring issues.
    I will add, I did rinse the motor yesterday to clean up salt water.

    To late and stressed to test today.

    Wished I done the above before towing for 3 hours

    I did raise the front of the skis way up, maybe water being picked up when level. I'll check that also
