2002 VLX wakesetter running rough need guidance

Recommended Posts

EBrown

I have a2002 Wakesetter vLX. Was surfing with friends and about 2 hours into it boat started running rough. Seemed like it was starving to get fuel or air as it would not let me get it back on plane even after I dumped the tanks. However it would not stall. Filled the gas tank but that was not it. Temp was good and oil pressure was good. Any ideas for troubleshooting? Thanks for your insights.

How many hours on the fuel filter? I think mine lasted around 500 hrs. The fuel pump starving made a really high pitched squeal.

Check fuel pressure at speed. Too high = pressure regulator, too low = fuel filter or fuel pump. Free rental of pressure tester at any auto part store.

Are you talking about the inline filter? That is a long time for that to last

Just replaced fuel filter last month with impeller and fluids. Have not checked fuel pressure thanks for that. Will check it for sure.
