View Full Version : Fuel pump??

07-27-2012, 09:24 AM
This past weekend while cruzing to my "spot" at about 4k rpm, the boat surged then drooped in rpm's and the check engine alarm sounded. Oil, temp and amps were all good. Shut it off and checked the engine compartment, oil, etc. appeared good. Started back up fine and the check engine had cleared and no alarm. I continued and it did it 2 more times, this time with out the alarm or check engine status. The last time it happened was in a "no wake zone" at about 1200 rpm.
The boat never stalled just a big drop in rpm's. I initially thought fuel pump but it never shut off and runs fine otherwise. Any ideas??

dont guess. check fuel pressure. it sound strong when you first turn the key to run?

best thing to do is pull codes, see what the problem is. you're still on MEFI-4, so it should be easy to find a code reader

It runs strong until it "hickups". Didnt even think to pull codes. A friend of mine has a reader, I'll see what code comes up. Thanks
