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 topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

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

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (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 topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic 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 topic.

5. By starting your own topic, 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 topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic 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 topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic 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 topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

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

  • 2003 Yamaha 200 hp ox 66 saltwater series surging at high rpm

    Just recently bought a boat with a 2003 Yamaha 200hp 0x 66 saltwater series .Ran it twice before problems arise.While going at wot the motor started surging high to low rpm and smoking excessively .I was able to even it out at low rpm and nurse it back to the marina.Read the forums and replaced the vst filter, high pressure fuel pump filter "which was plugged" .The original owner had the low pressure fuel pumps and vst filter cleaned in June. So i guess I inherited someone else s headache.I took a fuel pressure reading of 35psi at idle.One other thing to mention I replaced the o2 sensor and tube.They were both plugged solid with oil oozing out of orifice.All spark plugs were laden with oil so I changed them.I check the oil linkage and i used a feeler gauge to the engine specs it was OK.There was also an issue with the oil alarm going off because reservoir tank was low.Had a mechanic look at it and he flushed the tank and added new oil.Also he check the gas line and screen going into tank and changed the primer bulb"all with out using any test instruments"?I was told I was getting good gas flow to motor.The only thing I did when I got this boat was start using ring free and putting Yamalube in oil tank and get gas at the marina.I don't think the previous owner used ring free or Yamalube and only used the boat very little,it has 200Hrs on motor.Another observation I made with this motor is that at when I adjust the trim on the motor like around 4 the motor smokes less,trim it down and it smokes more?Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    Clean up your fuel system. Boat fuel filter, engine fuel filter, vst pump filter and there are also filters on your injectors. Check your low pressure fuel pumps.Replace them as a maintenance item.

      Your best bet is to use a test tank to make sure the problem is not the boat. Install your fuel pressure gauge and get a reading while the problem is occuring. If the pressure varies and falls,pump the primer bulb to insure that the vst is full. Unless the float or needle in the vst is sticking (haven't seen that one yet),the high pressure pump is probably bad.

        Funny nobody said a word about the o2 sensor.....clean it with a torch. Do NOT use solvent, just burn the crudd off of it....also clean the tube(remove the short little tube between engine and o2 sensor, it cloggs up)....if it's never been cleaned then most likely your problem...should be cleaned every f100 hrs. at least....
