    check engine light, white smoke, and won't go past 4k rpm when squeezing throttle

    New to the forum. recently took my 2013 sea doo rxt x 260 out to the lake and sucked up a bunch of weeds. didn't notice it at first until check engine light came on. immediately cut the ski off and got it back on the trailer. Cleared out the weeds and relaunched from another location later that afternoon. about 30 minutes into riding, the check engine light came on and the ski wouldn't go past 4k rpms when I squeezed the throttle. Cut it off again, gave it a little bit of time and then turned it back on and it was fine. Hooked it up to the hose this morning to see if it would run ok and immediately got a check engine light, high idle, and white smoke coming out of the exhaust. anyone have any idea what this could be? any help would be appreciated!

    White smoke is a sign of burning coolant. How hot did you get it?

    Check coolant to see if it's low. May be condensation from water. Did it smell like coolant ??
