    Virage I overheating

    I bought a used 2002 Virage I that needed engine work. I fixed the engine but now it is apparently getting hot after riding for <10mins. It will run great tied to the dock or with flushing hose connected, but when I start moving through the water it quickly goes into limp mode. I have checked and cleaned the cooling water pickup screen. I don't have a water injection solenoid installed so the wire for that is just hanging loose. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you verified correct hose routing, and good water flow through the EMM cooling loop?

    Make sure the water feed hose from the jet pump is NOT connected to the thermostat housing. Thermostat housing feeds the water exit hose, which goes out the back of the hull.

    Do you get a HOT warning on the display, or a Check Engine warning?

    When I picked up my Genesis it was going into limp a few minutes after riding. I found out that the temp sensor in the exhaust manifold was bad.

    The display would have shown the HOT warning, correct?

    The red LED was blinking and the display read engine overheat

    Now mind you I was riding in 55* water in February. I pulled the seat and was able to put my hand on the cylinder head for an infinite amount of time.

    I rode the ski for 10-15 min all the while it would cut down to limp mode then back to normal. I ended up unplugging the temp sensor and she flew for 30 min before I got to cold and had to get off the water. I replaced the sensor and have been running with no probs.
