Customer Question

Won't start. 06' Ebbtide 2100SS w/5.0 volvo gxi 270 hp. I replaced the fuel pump last week. it ran great for 3 days after replacing the fuel pump. The boat sat for 3 days and now will not start. It turns over great but does not even attempt to fire. I can hear the fuel pump pump when I turn on the key.
JA: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?
Customer: I thought of the kill switch being bad so I pushed the button in manually and it made no difference

Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?

Have you done any checking on your own, such as checking for fuel pressure and spark output?

Are those things that you can do?

No pressure gauge. I may be able to check spark. It'll be difficult, I'm by myself

GXI engines are complicated engines, and require may tools to work on. What were your expectations here?
