I have a volvo pent 4.3 GL boat engine. It was running smoothly then on deceleration the engine stopped. When I tried to start it again the engine died. Any suggestions of the cause?

Hello my name is ***** ***** i will assist you. Have you noticed anything abnormal in the gauges of temperature and oil pressure? Also were there any alarms? If no then most probably the problem you have is a bad fuel pump. I suggest you check the fuel pressure first , if it is 0 then the fuel pump is the problem.

If you require further assistance let me know.
