Fresh air vent for engine bay

Recommended Posts

mholland1

I have a 1993 malibu euro f3 sunsetter with 5.7 liter mercrusier. I have problems with the fuel hot soaking after shutdown and vapor lock. I cant find any source for fresh air to get in the engine bay. No vents in the front or near windshield. Did malibu make a mistake that year?

I don’t know about that particular boat; but, had vapor lock problems on a 2002 Malibu Response with proper vents.

When I switched from ethanol to 100% gasoline it resolved the vapor lock problem. Until then the best solution I found was to carry a short 2x4 block of wood to prop the motor cover up when stopping the boat. When experiencing vapor lock, I found that wrapping a wet rag around the fuel pump for a minute or two would cool the fuel and the boat would start.
