    ATLANTA, GA, February 27, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Deutz diesel engine specialists, APM Heavy Duty, would like to take a moment to talk about what causes marine motors to overheat. The optimal operating temperature is 180 degrees Farenheit, but only when the engine exceeds 200 degrees should you get concerned. Pushing your boat beyond its RPM limits is one way to stress the engine, but often a malfunctioning part is to blame.

Since overheating can lead to complete mechanical breakdown, diagnosing and fixing the problem as soon as possible is essential. There are a number of reasons why marine motors overheat, but knowing what trouble areas to check first will help speed up the process.

The Cummins diesel engine parts supplier notes that in most cases, overheating occurs when a single engine parts stops working. However, failure to address the issue can prolong its effects and ultimately lead to multi-part complications.

What to Do When Your Marine Motor is Running Too Hot

The first engine part to inspect is the raw water impeller as it is not uncommon for the plastic spokes on this device to break off and clog the raw water flow. Clear the blockage, replace the impeller and the problem should be solved.

Corrosion in the mixing elbow caused by prolonged exposure to minerals in the water is also a major culprit.

According to David DeBuc, Vice President of APM Engine Parts, "Don't forget to check the heat exchanger, thermostat and all the engine hoses. Though there are times when major problems like damaged cylinder heads are at fault, most of the time, all that is required is a simple fix."
