I have a 2013 Suzuki DF20A- SN 4100XX and the maintenance

Customer Question

I have a 2013 Suzuki DF20A- SN 4100XX and the maintenance manual shows a thermostat as being part of the fuel cooler. However on my engine the fuel cooler is a solid block of aluminum with water and gas running thru it. Where is the thermostat, was it moved or do I have a bastard engine?
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated 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: Engine runs until you accelerate, then goes into a reduced power mode and eventually stops. But will immediately restart with a green indicate and will idle forever. Engine case feels warm but not blistering. Plugs show white, or a very lean mixture.
