Just put my newly purchased 2006 2000SR3 with 5.7MPI engine (12 hours) in water and have a number of issues that the slim on line owners manual does not help.
1. When I turn the key the oil pressure, heat, level alarm sounds loudly. It does not turn off until engine starts then it quiets. Boat was winterized and prepped for me before I got it. I checked levels of oil heat, and pressure and all is well but alarm goes off any time key is on and engine is off, as when the engine stalls. On line manual is no help at all.
2. Hard starting, seems like it needs more gas but cannot do that when it is out of gear. Other boats I have had allowed raising rpm a little when engine was cold to get it started without engaging drive. Any idea how to do that. Again manual no help.
3. When I finally got it started, and warmed up, perfomance really really disappointing. Horrible acceleration. Took 15-20 seconds to get to plane, even with tilt at upper levels, then maximum speed only about 44. I thought it might be a propeller issue on the take off, but then max speed would have been greater.
Any ideas or thoughts on these issues would be appreciated.
