    High temp exhaust warning

    2014 307 SSX with twin Volvo 300’s - getting exhaust warning heat... bring it to a stop it is fine for 30-45minutes then happens again? Engine temp,is fine 160.
  2. My engine was overheating at WOT. Then it would start running warm while just running hard. Installed new thermostat, new impeller, and backflushed the system. Still doing it. Installed new manifolds & riser. The old ones didn't look bad enough to be causing the problem. While the engine was accessible, decided to replace all the hoses as a precaution. Problem # 1 was found, the honeycomb engine oiler cooler was partially clogged even after backflushing the system. I took it off & used a straight piece of wire to poke out all the organic debris. Problem # 2 was found by the mechanic, the fresh water hose coming from the outdrive was crushed by salt build up and restricting flow! Problem # 1 didn't cost anything to fix. Problem # 2 cost a bit, but still a heck of alot more then overheating the engine. Just a few things to look for outside the ordinary.

    Overheating on muffs

    My chap is overheating on muffs. Has new circulating water pump, manifolds, risers, & impeller. Only overheats while in neutral when you rev it up. Hasn't been swimming since we bought it & new parts were installed. Will that make a difference?
