    Default 08 Moomba hard to start

    I have a 2008 outback DD.The boat is hard to start cold or hot.It seems like it is not getting fuel.I can hear the fuel pump prime up.If i "bump" the key it seems easier to start at times. Any info or ideas on what it could be?

    Your ignition switch may be going out. I had the same issue on my 08 LSV. The issue was the switch would stop giving accessory power when turned to the start position. Basically you turn it to start and it would lose power to the fuel pump. I found a pic somewhere that showed what wires went to what on the back of the ignition and "hot wired" the boat. Easy way to find out if it's the switch or not.

    Has it had a tune up? Look under the distributor cap for corrosion and replace if so.

    The fuel pump may be priming but is it actually feeding fuel? Check the fuel filter, quick cheap fix, I replace mine every season.

    You could check the fuel pressure also after looking at the cap.
