Hey guys I need some help/opinions about my 2006 E-tec. I got the boat early 2013 and so far it has blown up twice and is currently being re-built for the second time.
A couple months after I bought it I replaced almost everything including batteries, water pump, and starter just to make sure I wouldn't have any issues. The boat blew up shortly after and I spent a shi*t load of money to get it fixed. The boat worked great all of last season and it wasn't until I was about to winterize that I noticed the engine block was cracked again. It didn't die on the water or give me any sort of sign there was an issue until I saw it. Needless to say I am extremely frustrated and confused on how this can happen AGAIN!
Has anyone had issues with their E-tech or have any idea what the problem could be?? The guy that originally fixed it is doing again at no charge but I don't want to keep a boat that could give me more problems in the future. I have heard that it COULD be the oil pump and IF I keep it I should just have that removed and mix the oil myself after I put gas in. Thoughts?
The boat is 2 years from being paid off so I would prefer not getting myself into another loan for an extended amount of time if I don't have to. What should I do??
ENGINE IS ON A RANGER Z20 COMMANCHE
CANT FIND MODEL # ON PAPER AND BOAT IS ON THE SHOP
