C. Temperature Gauge - (Included in 4-in-1
The temperature gauge monitors the cooling system
of the engine. A sudden increase in the temperature
could be a signal of a blocked cooling passage or a
water pump malfunction. See Figure E5.
Operation of an overheated engine can result
in engine seizure. If an unusually high tempera-
ture reading occurs, shut the engine off
D. Oil Pressure Gauge - (Included in 4-in-1
The oil pressure gauge indicates the pressure in the
engine lubrication system. A drop in oil pressure is a
possible indication of oil pump or leakage problems.
See Figure E5.
Figure E6: Tachometer - Rear View
Operation of an engine with abnormally low oil
pressure can lead to engine damage and
possible seizure. Have the engine serviced
immediately upon a reduced oil pressure
A speedometer is not be available on the 338 Vista
models. With the optional GPS/Navigational package
the ability to monitor your speed becomes available.
Please refer to the manufacturer’s literature for
programming the GPS unit for speed readings. This
information is included in the owner’s packet when the
boat is ordered with the navigation package.
E. Voltmeter - (Included in 4-in-1 Gauge)
The voltmeter monitors battery condition and thus
alternator performance. See Section H - Electrical
Systems for additional information on voltmeter
operation. See Figure E5.
Speedometers/speed indicators are not
precision instruments. The indications are
relative and should never be used for naviga-
tional purposes or similar critical situations
alone. Use other navigation systems in con-
junction with the speedometer.
F. Fuel Gauge - (Included in 4-in-1 Gauge)
The fuel gauge displays the level of fuel that is present
in the fuel tank. Refer to Section I - Fuel System for
additional information. See Figure E5.
Due to the mechanical nature of the fuel sender, varia-
tions in readings during various speeds of operation
may occur. This system is merely a relative indication
of the available fuel supply and not a calibrated
instrument. Refer to Section I-1F - Fuel Senders for
DO NOT rely on the speed indicator when
trying to achieve a “NO WAKE” condition in a
harbor or other enclosed waterway. ALWAYS
be cognizant of the size of your waves your
boat is making and reduce throttle until you are
sure that they will not cause any damage. You
are responsible for damage caused by the
wake of your boat.
