    If you were able to start it and it ran, then it is unlikely you did any damage. It would take more than 15 seconds to get any water in there. I think you are fine. My recommendation is ride it as soon as possible, since that is the best cure.

    Hi Ernest T,

    Sending you a private message as I see from other posts you have very good knowledge of jet skis and engines.

    I have a Yamaha FXHO 160 (2006).

    By mistake I turned off the engine before turning off the hose the other day. Once I realised 10-15 seconds later I started the ski again. And then turned off the hose ran is for a few more seconds and then stopped the engine.

    With the front seat off when the engine was running I noticed a bit of steam coming out of the engine bay.
    I canít remember starting the engine with the front seat off before so wasnít sure if it was normal?

    Also to add the hose water pressure is very low, not sure if this has saved me/my ski..

    Can you please tell me how to check if I have water in the engine?

    Ernest,

    I wanted to reach out to you directly as you seem to be the most knowledgeable on these forums. I have a 2008 Yamaha FX 1100 HO that will not get up to full speed. I was told that this is most likely a shifter problem.

    However, I have no idea what they mean by that??? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Ernest T,
    Troubleshooting stuck open injector for cylinder #2 indicates problem with ECU. I was wondering if you have a source for new ECU's that you trust and have had good luck with. Big investment for something that can't be returned if it comes with a problem.
    Thanks.

    I was afraid you were going to say something like this.
    I will try all the checks first.
    Thanks

    Hey Ernest, I have 2004 yamaha fx cruiser that seems to have a stuck fuel injector. Found that it is constantly flowing fuel until the unit is shut down. Electrically disconnected affected injector and it no longer flows fuel. Does this indicate that the injector is getting a constant signal to flow fuel? What would be my next step for troubleshooting this problem. I found this while doing compression check. It's on cyl. 2.
