Customer Question

i have a 2005 Honda aquatrax turbo gps scape, my turbo was stuck, I spray some crc and got my turbo release, but when I'm riding on the ocean and tried going full speed, my warning light comes on and engine stops and I get f1 code, then I take the key out for a few seconds and restarted and it runs fine until I tried to go full speed and it does the same thing again, what do you think is causing this problem

Most likely the turbo waste gate is sticking when it gets hot. It is a common problem on boats used in saltwater. When that happens the boost pressure will get too high and that causes the FI light to come on.

Yes, it is a very expensive repair.
