    Angry jetski wont star!!! :(

    ok now i got another damn problem with my jetski !!!

    my ski is not starting, it turns over but will not start??

    i tried new plugs in it and wen i started it at a mates it worked fine, but wen i got home to start it again it wouldnt start!

    is the spark from the plugs normally fairly visible or quite small spark??

    the sparks were only very small and hard to see

    any help appreciated

    what is your battery voltage and what are your cylinder compression ratings?

    Will it start if you dribble gas in to the carb?

    Charge your battery! Make sure you have a strong battery as these ski's like a lot of juice to get things going!

    nah guys nothing wrong with my battery!!!!

    found out that my ignition coils running from the spark plugs were [email protected]$%^#

    so had to go get some new ones $380 AUD they cost me :S

    apparantly if ur sparks are very weak and/or orange in colour its will usually mean that ur coils are screwed

    Yeah, and Ill respect you in the morning!

    Poor spark could be many things, coils don't fail very often and not usually all at the same time.

    What ski do you have?

    Did you try cutting the spark wires back 1/4" and rebooting before you replace the coils?
