    240 efi cooling question

    You should have flow from the pee hole IF YOU HAVE ENOUGH HOSE FLOW. Bugs like to build in there. You may need to remove the hose from cyl head and clean out from there.

    2001 m2 240 - obd port location, both pumps dead

    As for the OBD port- if you are looking for one like in your car, you won't find it. It's a Merc only connector. Sorry, can't remember much about it. It does have a cap on it.

    The curved cast tank on the port side of engine. Shrader valve is on top, should have a plastic cap on it.

    Is water in strator a bad sing?

    No, there should be no water in the oil. Use only Mercury High performance Gear Lube. Get it at WalMart. You will need 2 quarts to change stator and gearbox. Small handpump comes in handy. Also WalMart. Normal maintainence is to REMOVE the stator completely. The oil will start to drain as...

    possible cooling system problem?

    I don't think that is a good idea. You will be subjecting the cooling system to 5 to 12 times more pressure than was designed for. I use only a water hose (from a well).

    possible cooling system problem?

    Sounds like you just about have your problems licked. When using the normal flushing fitting, there is a fair amount of water that will come out of the 5 holes in the wear ring. That is why running the engine on a hose requires a lot of hose flow... some is wasted thru the wear ring and does...

    possible cooling system problem?

    The 5 holes may be hidden by the random location of the impeller blades. Try turning the engine just a bit and check again. Sounds like you found part of the problem. While you are at it, check the rest of the hoses. Caution- there are hoses that could back-fill the engine cylinders with...

    Just purchased a 2001 Seadoo Challenger 2000 Mercury v6 240 hp

    If the pump makes a thump thump sound, that is the lift pump.

    2001 Challenger 2000 not starting

    No, I`m saying $500-650 for the part. You need a ohm meter to test and a volt meter to set. Complete instructions are here in several threads.

    Just purchased a 2001 Seadoo Challenger 2000 Mercury v6 240 hp

    Pics were not a lot of help. 1st shows no fuel pumps. 2nd shows all 3. The pumps are thus: 1) lift pump. Does what a primer bulb does on a small outboard. 2) engine pulse pump. Driven by crankcase vacuum/pressure pulses. Maintains flow while engine is running. 3) injector high pressure...

    15 gal. in 3-4 hours is about average.

    Are you sitting down? $500- $650. The most expensive one I could find at Rock Auto was $130.

    2001 Challenger 2000 not starting

    When the TPS fails, it fails in full rich mode. If that has failed, engine may be very hard to start when hot. Starts a little easier when cool. Hope it's not that-- stupid crazy expensive part. Fuel pressure should be 36 psi. Injectors may need to be cleaned/calibrated. Worth the cost. I...

    possible cooling system problem?

    From under the boat- look up into the intake tunnel. On the upper left of the wear ring are 5 holes. These are the cooling water holes. Are they clogged? Any debris around the impeller? Small amount of debris can cause a HUGE drop in water flow. Check all the cooling hoses for obstructions...
