    Sorry, what was the word before 'plugs'?

  • drwood81 Mar 15, 2011

    It's got spark and it's getting gas. My husband already tried the other things you suggested. He's wondering if it could be the head gasket?

    I'm not sure how to use this site, so I'm not sure if you received my response. My husband already tried your suggestions to no avail, so he's now wondering if it could be the head gasket?

    Our 2002 MXZ 500 ski doo won't start after running fine. It's not the choke or flooded plugs, since my husband's already ruled that out. He's wondering if it could be the head gasket?

  • drwood81 Mar 15, 2011

    Will it just quit running completely if the head gasket goes? He can feel compression but he doesn't know if it's enough.

Check and see if the choke is stuck, and might lubed, on the linkage to the choke, and the reason it will not start could also be foud plugs.

Hello dr..... these jet skis need to be put on a battery charger every now and then to put them back in running order. Once you once again have a full charge, your Ski Doo will start right up. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Yes it can be dirty carburetor or problem with air leaks. If the Ski Doo shuts off while riding, change the plugs and clean up the carburetor. If this does not work, it is time to change the kill switch.If the Ski Doo does not start after cleaning the carburetor and kill switch looks fine, then install new gaskets to take care of air leaks. ------- In some cases its problem with pilot jets.First clean the carb and jets then check.If still the problem,.check the kill switch.If its checked out ok then there is air leak causing the problem.The gasket need to be replaced. ----------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

SOURCE: I have a Ski doo 583 RAVE motor theat backfires

It sounds like you have a reed problem they should be in a "cage" just behind the carbs on the cylinder and if they were missing a piece or if they were cracked it would cause the engine to backfire. If they are in good condition they should close against the cage and stop the back pressure coming through the carbs.

Ski-doo won't stay running or idle


sounds like it could be the air to fuel ratio. if it only want to run with the choke on. I would say to make sure all your nuts and bolts are tight and that you check the gaskets in between the carb and the motor. another thing you could do is get a can of starting fluid and spray it around the carb while the motor is running (do not spray it in the carb)if the idle changes or if it dies you need to replace gaskets.

2002 gti sea doo wont turn over on the first try


if you have one of the kill cords that is round and it snaps onto a round button that has a silver dot in the center that when the kill lanyard is snapped into place makes a connection to the silver part inside of the kill lanyard itself. most the time its because it is still verifying that it is the right key. they are programed to match you CDI box/ignition module of your ski. this prevents theft. if you clean both the key and the button the key connects to with some rubbing alcohol to insure a good clean connection will most likely solve the problem. when you put the key on the ski you should hear a beep then wait 5 to 10 seconds before hitting the start stop button . that gives the ski time to recognize the key is in fact the correct key to the ski.. hope this helps

Ski doo x team racing problems please help me


Try running in compatibility mode. Rightclick the shortcut, select properties>compatibility>check the box that says: run in compatibility mode for: and select an OS.

If that doesnt help I'm afraid you gotta actually run windows 95, 98, me or 2k to get it to work.

I hope this helps,
Yannick
