2001 Malibu Response LX

Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 Response LX with 300 hours. I purchased it last year and it is a super clean boat. No issues up until last week when we started having issues with it intermittently not running. It will start just fine 5 times in a row but the 6th time it refuses to start. Or when we at speed in the lake, it will just shut off then not start back up. We let it sit for awhile then it will fire right up. We've trouble shot everything we can think of within our limited expertise and are now down to replacing the distributor cap. The boat has the fuel injected GM Vortec 350 in it. I want to be sure I get the right distributor cap for it. Anywhere I can locate the correct part number and best place to purchase it? Any other thoughts as to what it might be? Thank you!

Thank you for the quick reply Eagleboy! We replaced all filters at winterization the end of last year so we are good there. Never thought to check the fuel pump pressure. Will do that for sure. Thank you for the link to the cap and rotor!
