View Full Version : Prostar 209 2002 starting problem

05-31-2011, 01:47 PM
I have 2002 Prostar 209 with the fuel pump and filter in the gas tank. Ran gas tank down to 3/8th of a tank and boat would not start. Put gas in boat and it cranked and rank at idle for an hour. Would not start again when I shut the boat off for 5 minutes. I let it sit and it will not start with a full tank of gas. Last year I replaced the in tank fuel pump. When I turn the key on I can hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds but the boat will not start. Is it possible that I damaged the fuel pump when the gas was low in the tank? Or is it the fuel filter - should I replace the in tank fuel filter. Is there another fuel filter on this boat that I am not aware of? Help.

I am having what I think is a fuel pump issue on my 2001 PS 209. Would appreciate info also.

If you go to autozone, or simular parts store. Get you a fuel pressure gauge. they are about 30-40 bucks.

The pressure needs to be tested to be sure the fuel pump is pumping with enough pressure.
