Gas that sits that long will clog up jets in the carburators. The best thing to do now is completely remove all of the gas in the tank and fuel lines and remove the carbs and get them thoroughly cleaned. This means taking out all removable jets, floats, and needles and making sure all passageways are clear. Make sure the carb clean is done carefully, so you don't have to repeat it.
Fuel stabilizer will help in the future, but it's usually good for one year.
Good Luck!

If you spray a small amount of starting fluid in the air filter, does it start? If it starts then I would say that the old fuel is the problem. Or maybe plugged up the fuel filter.

    I am not real familiar with the engine either. There is a rubber tube on top of the engine that goes to a small box. The box will have small clips on it to open it. Or some have large screws. It will be a rectangular box. That is where you want to spray the starting fluid. Don't spray a bunch. Won't take much. As far as the fuel filter goes. Find the fuel tank and it should have two lines coming from it. Follow the lines. They will go to the engine. Somewhere in those lines there will be a filter. As far as maintenance goes. You need to change the spark plugs once a year. And you can run injector cleaner in the fuel once a year also.

2003gti Sea-Doo will start and stay running but that all


Hey Rob,
Has this machine been sitting up? It won't rev up? ... If so, the carbs have probably become clogged/blocked due to the great gas we have now -evaporating inside the carbs,, it leaves deposits that clog the jets/valve and passages. Get a professional to clean and set them, put in a new set of spark plugs.. you should be running great!!

What do I need to do after 10 years of storage.To put a 1992 Sea Doo in water?


Change fluids, Check hull for bouyancy flaws, replace plugs, clean carbs or rebuild them. Most old engines get gummed up after long term storage if the fuel was not completely drained. Another possibility is that the bearings may be damaged from years of condensation and and drying. It happens sometimes and sometimes you just get lucky. Had a ducati paso 750 that blew the race on the bearings because they were deteriorated after years of storage in climate controlled space. Was fine then one day the bearings came apart in the engine and chewed it up.
