Customer Question

I have a 95 seadoo speedster that runs great, but when I turn it off the engine gets water in it. It becomes hard to fire and won't start. Once I get it out of the water I'll turn it over for awhile and then it will spit water out the back and after that it will start up.

Customer: Not that I can think of.
JA: Our top Marine Mechanic is ready to take your case. Just pay the $5 fully refundable deposit and I'll fill the Marine Mechanic in on everything we've discussed. You can go back and forth with the Marine Mechanic until you're 100% satisfied. We guarantee it.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

Water is no longer forced into the engine/exhaust/cooling system once the pump is no longer rotating and engine is shut off. This means that you usually already have a problem and compression is either keeping it out or just not noticing the effect while running. The more common problems will be the head having a hole from corrosion allowing water into the cylinders or the manifold allowing water in due to a similar problem.

Thank you!
- Joe
