My 2015 SeaDoo Spark will start and run, but not in excess…

Customer Question
My 2015 SeaDoo Spark...

My 2015 SeaDoo Spark will start and run, but not in excess of 5-10 mph without overheating. The "heat exhaust" sign comes on. It revs, but does not move. Any clues? THANKS

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

I have two 2015 SeaDoo Sparks, 3UP with low hours and they have performed flawlessly all summer. Until yesterday. It would simply not move any faster than 5 or 6 MPH

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?

That's it
