    2003 Virage i - stalling problems

    I have a 2003 fuel injected Virage i that's been giving me problems. In the beginning of last summer it would run fine then it would stall out every once in a while no matter the rate of speed i was going.

    towards the end of summer the stalling problem worsened, it would stall about 10 times on a twenty minute ride.

    I just put ski in the water for the first time this weekend and it stalls every time you hit throttle while its in forward. Ski starts right back every time.

    also, when on land and hose hooked up it revs fine and doesn't stall.

    please help.

    Welcome

    My guess, and hope, is that it just needs a new TPS. The Throttle Position Sensors do go bad over time, and a failing TPS can cause all sorts of strange problems.

    The replacement part number for your TPS is 2202740. Look in my signature links for a list of Parts Sources.

    There are other diagnostics you could do, but often it is difficult to know what is going on if the installed TPS is not known to be good.

    Is there a test to see if the tps is bad? I replaced the tps three years ago.

    The only reliable test is to swap in a known good TPS.

    Since you have the two cylinder fuel injected engine, be sure to read about the water injection solenoid (which is only present on the Virage i). This part often fails, and can be deleted. Details in the Ficht and Virage sections from my signature links.

    Also check into the reverse lever binding, and how to fix it before it breaks.
