    2001 GTI (720) Stalling/Low Power

    I just bought a 2001 GTI w/ the 720 motor.. took it out today for the first time, ran it for maybe 10 minutes maybe a little less.. it ran great until it got warmed up, the engine lost power, and stalled out... I tried to restart it, it didn't want to restart at first, I held the choke out ect.. finally got it to restart, it would only idle, I was able to bring the rpm's up slightly, but if I tried to accelerate, it would stumble, and stalled, I restarted it and idled it back in, I also tried the fuel setting in the reserve postion, as it felt like I was not getting enough fuel.. I cleaned the filter the other day, it was dirty, and ran it for a good period of time on the trailer ect with not problem. I pulled the plugs, they looked fine. The ski only has 15 hours on it, but supposedly the motor was replaced due to poor winterizing..

    One other thing, it took a bit of cranking to get it to start in the water. I would probably say more then 10 seconds (was using the choke as well), my 2002 GTI started pretty quick.

    Any Ideas where to start?

    Thanks,

    I've heard there is a screen in the carb? can this be removed and cleaned without removing the carb? So should I just pull the fuel line and see if there is a good amount of fuel flowing to the carb?

    Its kinna like this....

    Its a 2001 & it only has 15 hours....

    Remove carb,clean/rebuild & replace ALL fuel lines,they are know to deterioate internally & thats whats clogging the small filters in the carb.

    Do it half ass & you will probally end up buying a new motor...your choice.

    If you had a fuel problem with your vette would you only fix half the problem,probally not unless you want to walk.

    Point well taken, What the best fuel line to use, what size and how much? Is there any write-up's on rebuilding or cleaning the carb? What gaskets would I need? Just the base gasket?
