If you took it in for work other than the engines and they blew it up, they should pay. If they don't want to, see if they are a member of the Better Business Bureau. If so, contact a representative. Did you sign a work order? If you did, did you read any fine print contained in that work order? If they are truly a Seadoo dealer, contacting Seadoo and letting them know this has put a bad taste in your mouth that a Authorized Dealer would not make good on this might get some action. I know an attorney is expensive, but that is an option as well. Dealers have insurance for just such an occurance. If it was an auto dealer, I would expect no less. Sorry for your bad luck man....

both told me I was running the right seadoo oil and said they are grabbing a straws!! They both said if it was the oil why didn't the other motor lock up?? oh, before seadoo said they would fix my hull I had the dealer water test it and adjust the throtle cables. I gave them the boat running great and im going to get it back the same way. After I got it out from winter storage I tested the compression on the motors and both read 145+psi. Im just woundering if they sucked water up into the motors being that they fouled out brand new plugs??

Is your boat a Carburated model? If so, improperly adjusting the throttle cables could cause a too high air to fuel mixture, resulting a lean condition. This situation could quickly cause engine failure. I have seen this many times... (I am a 2 Stroke Snowmobile Drag Race Engine Builder)
I had the dealer water test it and adjust the throtle cables.
Also, improper winter storage and a engine that is not "fogged" before storage, can cause a crank to form rust during storage, thus result in engine failure shortly after bringing out of storage... (Fogging an engine protects the internal engine parts from corrosion during storage. This is very important in a 2 stroke motor)

well what you know the bolts had been broke away from the head. I could tell because the paint was broke around the bolt and the bolts had mark on them. I put in another post labeled (drive line) I noticed that my engine area was really dirty so I started washing it out and I noticed that the PTO cover on the blown motor was not on right so I pulled on it and it came righ off. Take a look at the seal, look how bad it is. I wonder if the pump locked up and blew motor??

corrosion !!! Now they said they would talked about a discount for the repairs if I wanted to have them repair it. ya right!!! They said they would put a STB motor in it for 1800+14hr+the money for all the new gaskets.
Wow about a $1000 mark up for the same motor I can buy from the same place. Oh, I found out last night that (quick Silver) brand oil has a
2 cycle oil for sea-doo's!! sold at walmart along with sea-doo brand 2 cycle oil . both are around $6.00 a bottle. I was surprised to find out that Walmart sold Sea-doo brand oil.

We have another Wallyworld Super Center, that doesn't have hardly anything for boaters.
