    2002 virage TXi engine dies

    hello, I have 2 2002 polaris jetskis, Both quit running last summer. The 3cycl model will start and idle for a few mins then die. If you hit the throttle it will run for a min then die. I took it to the recomended repair shop to have them put both on the computer. They told me everything checks out fine on both. They would have to take them apart to tell me what is wrong with them. I took them back home to see what I could find. When I took off the gas cap and there was alot of vacume. I then started it and it seem to run fine and did not die. Is there a check valve for the gas tank to let it breath? Also the 2cycl model was running fine then just died while on the lake. It will turn over but not run. It has spark and fuel pressure and they said the CDI is good. It sounds like there is some clicking noise from around the flywheel. Is there any way the stator came loose? Any help? Thank you

    Welcome to the Hulk!

    Unless you feel that both machines have the same source of trouble, I suggest you discuss them in separate threads. Makes for less confusion all around.

    Did the two machines fail at different times, with different symptoms?

    You can find the 2002 Polaris Service Manuals here, along with a lot of other useful info.

    BTW, where are you located?

    On the three cylinder 2002 Virage TXi, can you list what checks have been done?
    Fuel pressure, injector voltage at idle?
    Any warnings or red lamp on MFI display?

    When you say it runs for a minute, then stops, do you mean running while floating in water, or out of the water on the hose?
