Getting misfire codes on 1,5, and 6 cylinder. Some codes are even saying damaging misfire. I have listen to the motor and can feel it running just fine. No hiccups or anything. Was wondering if anyone else is getting these codes?

I would imagine, it would be difficult to feel a misfire on the water. Unless it's a dead hole.

One thing that you could check is to make sure your spark plug wires aren't being crushed by the engine side panels when the rear water ballast bags are full. I installed some wake makers panel stiffeners on my engine side panels to help reduce the amount of flex. They would bend and hit the engine valve covers before I added the stiffeners. This is just idea of something to check. My boat never had a misfire problem.

I am getting the code during these few hours I have put on the boat with out filling any ballast. I was wondering if the fuel I used could be causing it. I used 91oct with no ethanol. Dealer said he had a mondo do it the weekend before and that SC told him some motors were doing that during break in. I have payed close attention to the oil pressure and motor temp. Both were in the acceptable range.

Why would the fuel be causing it? Isn't the raptor minimum 89 octane?

Just looking at everything and anything that could cause it.

Mine threw a CEL and O2 sensor codes on Friday....first time taking it in the water. My dealer cleared the codes, put it in the tank and everything supposedly ran fine. I'm a little disconcerted at what is seemingly many new '17s throwing codes right out of the gate...these toys are too expensive for this kind of BS. :mad:

I have been told by the dealer that the Raptors do not like prolonged idle. It will throw o2 codes. Apparently they build up moisture at idol.

I too am disconcerted at the codes for something that cost this much. Hopefully when I go to get my 10hr service done it will be an easy simple fix for the dealer.

Hey Dan what ever came of your boat throwing those codes? Mine is doing the exact same thing on same cylinders. Started doing it the very first ten minutes I put brand new Boat in the water. Cel goes away with a battery reset. Dealer said they would clear it once I brought it back for the 20hr. They didn’t seem too concerned. I agree with everyone spend this kind of money and would expect absolutely no issues. I know anything mechanical and electrical has the potential but made me want to punch myself in the face when it was the first ten minutes on the water.

I was a ford mechanic many years ago and i know ford had issues with ign coils on the triton engines. I think they are the same type of coils. And as for not idleing well?? Boats are made to do that. Maybe pm engineNUT he works at indmar SUPER GREAT GUY AND HELPFUL

Anyone heard of a service bulliten about having problems with a short run of raptor motors having metal heat shields. Something about the can cause codes to be thrown because arch’s off from spark plug wire to the engine block? Called one dealer and they explained just remove the heat shield, guy explained he had gone to sc for training and they stated to check every boat they get and remove the spark plug heat shield if they find any. That dealer said they had seen three motors with them out of 20. They were very detailed. Than another dealer told me have heard of no such things and not to remove them if I have them as I could void my warranty?????

If you have a Raptor engine that has metal shields on the spark plug wires, the metal shields should be removed. In some cases the shields prevented the spark plug wires from seating properly on the spark plugs. The shields are needed in automotive use because the exhaust manifolds in an automotive application are hot. Marine exhaust manifolds are water cooled.

Thank you engine nut. I was able to contact Indmar and they confirmed what you explained. Indmar indicated that they have had many issues with the heat shield on the spark plug boot and I was told to remove them. The Indmar tech I spoke with stated that they have not put out a service bulliten but that they need to be removed. So I called sc to ask if they have heard this. They indicated that they had not and that they don’t put out service bullitens on the motor as that warranty lies directly with Indmar. My question here is this is a major disconnect. Branding enormous to the success of a company. If I were sc and a customer to Indmar it would be a priority to solve that problem. All it takes is one shopper saying I’m not going to buy boat Y because I here they have X problem. Rant over and just my .02 I understand anything mechanical and electrical has the ability to have malfunctions and design flaws and all boat manufacturers see there fair share of grimlins.

Loose spark plug wires was the reason. Also while the dealer had it, he replaced some sensor for the exhaust.
