Re: Volvo Penta MS 2V Overheating

You should verify that it is actually over heating, this can be done with a infrared thermometor which can be purchased on ebay pretty inexpensively. I had a C&C with a yanmar that had the wrong sending unit installed and would cause the buzzer to go off when the engine was not actually overheating. A bad sednding unit can cause the same problem.
