Our ski club has a 2019 txi with the 6L , we have had issues with this boat since the first day and I'm wondering if anyone else has had these issues and perhaps knows a fix. Our dealer doesnt know what to do and our club is losing a lot of ski time this year because of it.
Since the first day the service engine light will come on, and then after the first set the engine will overheat and go into limp mode. We can then get the boat working by turning it off and on and revving the engine a bit in neutral. *note our dealer claims that while checking the engine codes that there are none to be found. No fix/repair and we were told to continue using the boat.
At the end of july our boat began misfiring, we got the boat back "fixed" but it would not make power and certainly could not pull a skier even at slow speeds. Boat has been at the dealership now for a couple weeks and everyone says they are "stumped".
I believe this is a known issue with these malibu's with this engine. Last year I heard in the fall that these boats had an engine issue that sounded the same as what we are having. Unfortunately we had already ordered our boat so we couldn't make a change.
Has anyone else experienced this and hopefully found a fix?
Edit: put 6.2l but it's a 6L
