    Default 2012 LSV Smoking

    First time poster, but have been following these forums for a while. We have a 1 year old LSV with 60 hours on it, that we got winterized and stored by the dealer where we bought the boat. We put it on the water for the first time two weeks ago for the summer and just drove it to the lift and kept it there till today. Today we checked the oil and all the fittings and everything checked out normal so we took the boat out.

    After a normal warm up and quick run we stopped to get our first wake boarder in the water for the summer. We did a couple of runs and as we went to pick up the user white smoke was coming out of the three vent holes on the back of the boat. Smoke was also coming out of the cup holders and by the driverís seat. The smoke had a very powerful smell, like burnt rubber. When I opened the cover of the engine, after a couple of seconds, we heard a couple of pops. The check engine light never came on and the temperature gauge showed normal during the runs. After the pops and all the smoke started to appear I turned the key to power up the guages to see if they showed anything. The check engine light was illuminated also, the temperature gauge was pegged all the way to the right.

    So the main point of the post, I am just trying to see what you all think went wrong, so I can go into the dealer educated.

    Thank you

    Sorry to hear this! Are all the water hoses plumbed and connected properly? Often dealers leave the hoses disconnected in a winterize. It sounds like an overheat...

    Sounds like you burned the main belt off the engine.
    The belt drives the water pump and alternator, so this is a good reason why the boat will be over heated on the gauge.

    Very slowly and gently drive it to the dock trailer it and get it to the dealer ASAP.
    Most likely you have a bad water pump or Alternator and the pully seized and with the engine running it will force the belt to spin and burn it through. The pop you herd was the belt im sure.

    Take a look on the front of the engine, closer to the back of the boat and see if there is a belp on the pullies.

    This all should be under warrenty as the engines are under a couple year warrenty

    Thank you to everyone for the quick responses. I checked the hose on the boat and it was nice and tight and looked brand new. I also looked at the hoses that go into what I assume is the exhaust and they were melted. Some clamps were melted off too, so those could have been the pops possibly? Also, I checked the oil and it still looked brand new. I hope this didn't cause that much damage to the engine so we can get back on the water quickly.

    Urghhh. That needs to go back to the dealer. Hope they cover it as I don't think that's gong to be a cheapo fix.

    Would a bad t'stat be the cause, Mike or moombahighrider?

    Drew, I know you didn't ask me but I think a stuck t/stat with a few wakeboard pulls would definitely be the cause. I have been on the receiving end of an over heated engine (on my old boat) so have some experience with the suckiness of that situation.

    Wait, I did ask you, too. Hate that you had to enjoy that suckiness.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Your issue sounds very much like the same thing that happened to us last year. Our water pump went bad and had the exact same symptoms. We have the 345 surf engine and this is not the only instance of this happening from what my dealer said. It was covered under warranty.

    They put some sort of kit to reroute the flow of water into or out of the pump and said it shouldn't happen again. Sorry, I'm not really mechanically inclined, and really didn't care about the why/or how of the problem. Just wanted it fixed and not to happen again.
