Good morning my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? I read what you wrote. Have you done any kind of diagnostic work such as checking the compression, checking the fuel pressure, and hooking the engine up to a scan tool?

Mark. No I haven't, that is beyond my limited experience. Thought I would try as the one tech at my marine is very busy/slow. I do get a gas pump flashing sign on smart watch when prob occurs
Marine Mechanic: Jason, Marine Mechanic replied 2 months ago

HI Mark. Those tests would all need to be done in order to try and figure out what the problem is. How is it I can be of help to you here?

I was hesitant to join this now that is confirmed. You basically told me to have a tech diagnos problem then tell you so you could repeat his answer to me.
Marine Mechanic: Jason, Marine Mechanic replied 2 months ago

No problem man, these are extremely complicated engines. We never know who has what for tools or knowledge here, that is part of the reason why we have a 100% refund policy. You can contact customer service any time at***@******.*** for a refund. No harm no foul.
