Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • yamaha pro v 150 overheating at idle

    Hi guys, I,ve read several of your threads and it looks like you guys have plenty of collective knowledge to help me out. I have a 1990 150 pro v that runs like a top. Problem is there is an overheating alarm that goes off if the motor is ran under about 1000 rpm for about 6-8 min. Understand that it runs great with no overheating as long as the rpm is kept from 1000-5500. I have replaced the wpump and after heating the tstats up in the wifes tea pot (she really loved that idea) they open up at about 110F so i think they are good. There wasn't any corosion around the wpump or any that i can see from the tstat housing so i think im good there. The water peeing out isn't what i would call too hot when the alam sounds. Could i have a bad temp sensor? How can i check? By the way, this engine has never seen salt water, probable explains the lack of corossion. Any ideas will be great.

    Like the top thread says it is best to give your model # so people know what motor you are talking about.

    I believe that if the PRV is stuck open or partially open it will dump cooling water before it flows through the motor and not allow the water to fill the block completely causing the top cylinders to over heat at idle .Once you bring up the RPMs enough water will flow to do its job.

          It is definately a 150F but I'm not positive that it's a 90 model, maybe an 89. Are these 2 the same. I really appreciate your help.

              Looks like all the 150's around that year use all of the same prv s. I've got 1 coming and I'm confident that this will do the trick. Thanks for your time and patience. If your ever in Northeast LA I owe you a cold one.

                Have you pulled yours to see if it has a problem yet?
                you need to, just to see what is wrong and what all parts are needed. Gaskets, spring, grommet, lots of corrosion,etc.
                Hey, I can always use a extra cold one. But do not run through there very often

                  Not yet. Been working. Should be able to take it down this weekend. Of course I didn't think about what all was in there before I ordered the pov. But at least I did get a gasket. Maybe I'll luck out.
