    03 Sea Doo GTX 4 tec 185hp

    I have a friend that purchased a used 03 Sea doo supercharged 185. It only has 6 hrs. We pump out old gas, put in new plugs, and a new battery. It starts and runs great for 3-5 mins and then runs out of fuel. We have put in some injection cleaner and no real change from day to day. You can hear the fuel pump running and once it dies, it will only hit when started again.

    Seriously, a 2003 with only 6 hours? Very hard to believe…….. 11 years old with only 6 hours?? It better look brand new.

    I would pull the fuel pump out of the tank and check for corrosion, change the oil & filter, spark plugs, and run Premium or AV gas 100LL in it, then most importantly that ski needs a supercharger rebuild immediately.

    If the ski looks worn and is scratched up, the previous owner changed the ECU and or dash cluster and the hours are not legit……….

    Sounds very suspicious to me!

    If it has that low hours, make sure you look everything over good. Skis don't like to sit that long

    Thanks, going to get supercharger rebuilt and like for it to run longer than 5 mins without cutting off.

    That old and with it not running, I'm sure your injectors need cleaning and the fuel pump is probably all gummed up

    Took fuel pump out to clean and didn't look to bad, now the pump will not run. We do have 12v at the pump. I think the pump has a short causing it to cut off before. All fuses are good.
