    Default sea doo will not start

    Hi everyone this is my first sea doo it's a 2003 gti le rfi. I bought it from a guy that said he just rebuilt the top in and the ski will not start not the water but it starts great out. He said the timing was wrong and he didn't know how to time it. I bought it and timed it and it still didn't start in the water. After a month at a sea doo dealer they told me it needed a rotary valve cover and it should run good. I took it home and bought a new cover and valve from sbt. The thing won't even start on the trailer, it wouldn't when I got it back from the dealer either. I took the rv cover off and rolled it over there is a bunch of oil coming out of the intake ports. When I clean everything up it will start for 10-15 sec. I would take the plugs out and they would be wet with oil. Any ideas what I should do next? Sorry for the long story and thanks for any help

    It may have bad crank seals allowing oil to enter into the crank case causing the fouling issue, typically if a rotary valve motor starts out of the water but not in the water the clearance between the block and cover is too great, it could be a worn out block or cover or combination of both.

    talk to people who own a seadoo and find out who is the best rated mechanic, you'll be much less for the wear. Trust me.
