Re: Volvo Problems

The first symtom, white smoke: was it really smoke or steam? White smoke is typically unburned diesel in the exhaust and steam is an indication of overheating.

Check to see that the pump is getting raw water through the thru hull. It could be a plugged thu hull, not uncommon with eel grass in my neighborhood. Also, does the raw water make a circuit through the reverse gear? That can be another source of an obstruction.
