Just saved at least $200, thanks to this forum (AGAIN)
For those of you that don't know... I sold my 04 Outback in Feb to upgrade to an LSV and found my dream boat, color scheme and all and well taken care of. She was 5 years old with only 200 hours on her and ran like a dream. As of lately we have gone from 50/50 wakeboard/surf to 0/100 surf and that's when I started noticing a slight hesitation between 5-7mph, almost like a hiccup, but consistent at that speed and went away as I sped up...
Got on here and starting reading up on fuel filters, spark plugs, gasoline, fuel pumps, etc... I realized this was a common problem with a not so hard fix. So being that the boat has 200 hrs and I had no boat records for any maintenance from the original owner, I figured I would just start with replacing the fuel filter and might as well swap out the spark plugs while I'm in the boat with the tools.... Annnnnnnd BOOM problem solved!!! This whole process took me an hour and $80 in parts ($20 fuel filter, $60 on plugs). Not to mention the self reward of doing it yourself and actually fixing the problem. So yea I figure I saved at least $200, maybe $300 on parts and labor just by reading up on here... like my signature says...
