I have a 2000 Blazer v-pro 190 with a 150 Mercury Optimax...
I jut got the boat back from the shop from having a transim put in it and decided to take it out today to make sure everything was going to work right before taking it fishing next weekend... got it on the water.. run fine for about 5 minutes.. I was running about 3/4 throttle when it sputtered ... I got an over heating alarm... I noticed right away the steam comming from the motor so I shut down... no water came from the pee hole on the motor to show the pump to be pumping... I let it cool down then started motor again... I throttled it a couple of times and the water started comming out the pee hole and the engine cooled down... I got the boat home... pulled the lower unit off and checked the impeller it was fine.. I put it all back together put the hose on it and run the motor it seemed to be doing fine... any thoughts on what could have happen???

I am going to replace the impeller, and spark plugs in the next couple of days anyway but I would like to know maybe what might have happen to me today

A plastic ice bag around the lower unit--doh--I hate it when that happens.

Or Grass wrapped around the front of the gear case disturbing or aerating the water flow into the pickups. BillS

Overheating is usually due to insufficient cooling water circulation.
