Raw water pump

3 posts in this topic

2010 216ssi. 5.0 Volvo. I don't seem to have a gauge  that reflects internal engine temperature. What would be the first sign a raw water pump was not moving enough water?

Engine temperature raising above normal which is circa 155-165 F depending on the engine (check your operators manual). Chances are the temp gauge is there unless the dash was modified. The next sign would be an engine alarm sounding, followed by the engine going into protected mode and overheated engine.

Thanks Richard, somehow this got posted twice. Not sure how. I have the combo analog/Digital gauges with multiple windows. I can not find a engine operating temperature readout anywhere. The boat is in ABay and I am home in Pa. I will mess with it when I get back up there in October.
