14 LSV23 - No acceleration past half throttle this year🤷‍♂️

Recommended Posts


So as the title implies, I have had boat out twice now this year, and I noticed when accelerating if I put the throttle past 50%, the boat does NOT accelerate like normal, it "slowly" will gain speed whereas previous years I could hammer down up to speed. Been reading a lot of posts about the 13-14's having throttle assembly issues just curious if anybody had this experience...My local dealer is hours away so want to at least try to determine cause.

Weirdly today as well my boat alarm went off with a misfire in cylinder 7 - will be checking plugs and wires tomorrow. Could the above symptom have something to do with this?

When my throttle needed to be replaced it would slip out of gear.  I would lean you have a fuel problem.  Do you have 55-62 psi on your fuel rail shrader valve on key up? If so next step would be to test it on WOT and see if it dips when demand increases fast.  If you don’t have an issue with your fuel delivery then I would follow along and do all the checks on the “no start guide”.  If you finish that and don’t find the culprit there’s a good chance it indicates problems with ecm.
