I bought a 2001 Sea Doo GTI, everything ran great. I took it to the local dealership to have them look at it to see if there was anything it needed and to see if it needed any routine maintenance. They tuned it up and replaced the oil compartment.
I took it out to the lake..ran good for about and hour and a half, then it started bogging down. You could give it gas, but it wouldnt go. Then a few minutes later it was fine. After doing this a few times, I took it out of the water and opened the drain plugs. Well to my horror, the dealership serviceman left a shop rag in the motor and my motor shredded it up.
I took the Sea Doo back to the dealership and explained the rag problem and mentioned that they didnt strap down the battery either. Well they evidently cleaned out the driveshaft area and said the rag issue has been fixed and my Sea Doo is running fine again.
I took the Sea Doo out to the lake and the same thing happened..ran good for about an hour and a half, then started bogging down.
I went back to the dealership and now they said my fuel lines need replaced and the carberatur needs cleaned..and that this has nothing to do with the shop rag going thru the motor.They want to charge me $250.
Would this be correct? This thing has been in their shop 4 out of the 5 weeks ive owned it. Why didnt they tell me the lines needed replaced the first time I brought it in? The service manager said that the rag did not go thru the gas lines or carberatur...but it was shredded all up in the motor and was coming out of the drain plugs in the back of the sea doo. Any advice of information?
