I have a volvo 2002(model number not year). For the last 6 months or there-abouts it has been having over heating problems. Originaly had a blockage in intake - now fixed. It runs for maybe 15 minutes before alarm sounds. Impeller, thermostat, filter, intake and hoses all seam to be ok.
Engine is sea water cooled. Water comes in through stop valve to a heat exchanger to cool engine oil then to filter and into motor. When running I do get water coming out of exhaust. Any ideas would be welcome. I have always sailed with out an engine but this boat is a little to big and pen is difficult to enter with prevailing breeze. Thanks, Dave.
