I noticed that all the threads on this subject had ceased after 2011 so I figured I would start a new thread on the Etec injector senario.
I am hoping that the reason no threads after 2011 is that installing new injectors solved all the problems?
I have a 2008 - 225 Etec with 245 hours that stopped running last fall. Took to shop and had shorted #1 & 2 injectors which shut the engine completely down. BRP as a precaution installed a new EMM under warranty. Got boat back in February and did not run it until April. Less than 20 hours the #4 injector went out with an open code. As a precaution to eliminate the bad fuel possibility I drained all the gas from the tank, replaced the on boat water seperator cartdridge, the moter fuel fuel filter and all 6 spark plugs. (yes I did index them) Also use XD100 oil.
Let me also mention that I do not use ethenol fuel. I use 87 octain reg fuel.
Ran boat about 10 hours and went into safe mode again? Took to shop and they replaced injectors 3 & 6 which showed shorted code. Tech said injector #5 was not passing the static test with flying colors and recomended replacing.
So now I have 6 new injectors which all ahave a manufacture date of 2013.
All the old injectors were all manufactured in 2008.
All the bad injectors were clean as a whitsle with no corrosion and no signs of water?
4 of the 6 replaced injectors failed due to short, 1 with open code and 1 with bad static reading.
My question is to all the old posters who had problems: Did the problems go away once you got rid of the 2008 manufactured injectors?
I see no new posts for bad injectors on the newer models.
HOPE MY PROBLEMS ARE SOLVED!!!
I love the engine and I am not an Etec basher!
