    Starting problem

    Hey guys, i went to start my p-x the other day for the first time in about 3 weeks, and i had to try many times to turn it over before it started.. I have never had this problem before. It had always started 1st time everytime.. Just prior to starting it i had been cleaning out my intercooler with gas, im thinking i may have left some gas in there, but i was pretty sure i cleaned it right out... It ran fine when i got it in the water. You guys think i have a problem?

    Did you get any black smoke out the exhaust when it finally started? That would tell you if it was flooded from gas in the IC... Ron

    Did it just click when you hit the start button or did it try to crank? If it made a clicking noise then it's highly likely you need a new starter relay. It's the brown piece on the side of the MPEM in the older models. Not sure about the newer models. Also, you hadn't started it in a few weeks..The battery might have needed a little charge.

    It was cranking over fine until the battery started to die.. I managed to start it just before the battery lost its charge..
    As for the black smoke Ron, i didnt pay much attention to it at the time, but i dont think there was much black smoke..

    Then it was probably a coincidence that you just cleaned the IC... Ron
