Help! My e-tec 75 went into s.a.f.e. mode the other day about 1 mile from dock, hot eng light came on, rpm's dropped below 1000 automatically. I looked behind the motor to find NO water coming from pisser. How do I know if my problem is the thermostat, the pressure relief valve, or the water pump? Is there any way to test any of these 3 parts before I replace them? The engine just went out of warranty (3 years) and has about 100 hours in salt water.

I'm no pro but here's my opinion for what it's worth. Hot or cold the pisser should have water coming out of it so I don't see how it could be the thermostat  or pressure relief valve.  Must be water pump or a blockage.  Just a few seconds of running an engine out of water will damage the water pump so it not hard to do.

The  indicator fitting can be removed and water hose threaded in to flush if no water from indicator after flushing check pump
