I have a 2004 wakesetter LSV we were out on lake for 3 hrs boat running fine then all of a sudden boat looses full power but as long as i put in idle boat runs smooth and fine, but as soon as i try to give it gas no good then i turned boat off start it back up and boat would run perfect for a minute or so then drops pwr again. I would turn off again start babk up and would run good for a min or so, im thinking coil any thoughts. and if coil where can i find on boat and can i pick a new one at auto parts store. Thanks scot

Does "looses power" mean limp mode, or is it really just losing power?

Change your fuel filter to start (cheap and easy). My guess is fuel pump is letting go. Any strange singing from the pump? Or lack thereof?

Engine temp OK? Several issues that will cause this. One is a shredded impeller but it will be hot, but could be a fuel issue. Sounds like limp mode.

98% certain that it's fuel related.

Usually if it's spark related and bad enough to the point that it's losing almost all power, you'll have an engine miss or misfire that goes with it.

A bad ignition component can cause hesitation and lost power, but if it shuts you down almost completely it'll run terrible even at idle.

Fuel starvation, on the other hand, acts just like that. So fuel filter (that's like $10-$20 and is easy to swap) then if it keeps it up, start looking at the fuel pump.

If you want confirmation, get a fuel gauge for the fuel rail.

ok i may be jumping the gun but i pulled fuel filter off to put new one on even blew thru old one and appears to be no obstruction, but to be safe i put new one on. If i have to replace fuel pump can i cross ref over to an auto fuel pump ? and if not where would you suggest getting one ?

Thanks Scot

Check out the fuel pressure before ordering a new pump. There's always the off chance that it's electrical related.

There's a rumor that you can buy a fuel pump that's not "Indmar." It's a crossreferenced part. But - I haven't been able to find it, and I think I read somewhere that they stopped making it.

I'd be curious to see if there are any aftermarket parts that will fit instead of dropping $375 on an indmar fuel pump.
I mean, I can pick up a walbro for my car for like, $90. haha
