Customer Question

Second opinion] - I have a 2008 stingray with Volvo 4.3 engine. I forgot to close the flush kit, took the boat out and it overheated. Brought the boat in, hooked a hose to the flush port and temp came down fine. So ordered impeller, replaced it, and now won't cool with flush kit or in water
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?

In this diagram locate the hose # 6 and disconnect it from the thermostat housing or the heat exchanger. Now turn water on start engine does it pump water?
