I'm sure this isn't the first post of this nature, but my for trip on new boat
, I'd like to get as much info as possible
4JH45, one runs great, the other goes into "safe mode" after half hour. turning it off, waiting 15 mins, then restarting runs normally for half hour, then back to safe mode.
I'm assuming overheating
When running water
comes out of exhaust
, I haven't seen this engine
run enough to know whether it is "normal", or weak.
I checked the impeller, it looks good, but I'm going to replace. I opened the sea cock, water
comes in. the sea filter looked clean enough. the hose was stepped on, and oval shape, I may replace, or shorten, it runs a loop completely around engine
compartment, (how it got stepped on).
was burnt looking, (and smelling), that will be replaced.
looks dark orange, (old, or dyed?).
Anything else I should check?
I'm driving mostly on engines around the Florida
coast. Having a good engine is very important to me.
I checked coolant
level, it looks good. the engine only has 400 hours, and is 2015. Other than clogged injector, or coolant
, I can't think of what would go wrong.
