    97 XP

    I have this 97 XP brought into the shop.The owner tells me when his kids ride it and stuff the nose in the water the engine dies, it is not in jesting water but what i believe is happening when the hood is submerged water is blocking the air intake system in the hood staving the motor for air. has any one had this problem or any ideals in soultions

    thanks

    Doubt that. I have fully submerged mine on purpose and it has never shut off.

    You need to buy some vent plugs from Worx, he has some trick plexiglass ones that pop into the front holes.

    I'm in agreement wih Bob, I think the carbs need cleaning and rebuilding as it sounds like a leaking needle and seat. The engine will load up and die when one leaks.

    Could be carbs ,could be water in ignition box though they usually still run even full of water, or loose electrical connection.Depends on how it dies and if they are giving it throttle or tank is way low on fuel.lots of different possible causesJMHO>Marvin
