Bought new 150ho g2 and first time out ran great and went to 6100 rpm. Second time out, motor would be at 1200 rpm and the increase/decrease to 1500 by its self and would not restart - had to be towed in with under 10 hours on the motor. Dealer said never saw anything like that, engine flooded with oil, might have to replace motor. Dealer said, Evinrude tech came out to work on - 1 fouled plug and did update to computer...never got any paperwork and transom holddown straps were missing. on the 5th outing with the new boat/motor the motor was still changing speeds from 1200 rpm to 1500 by its self, only git to 5500 rpm... finally on way back to boat ramp, accelerating, made it to 4000 rpm and then alarm sounded and motor slowed down and got power down meassage on tack....took to another Eveinrude dealer to work on and gave him the history of motor that has approaxiamtle 20 hours on it and 5 attempts at boating - 2 breakdowns out of 5, not good!!
We are sorry to hear that your experiences were not enjoyable ones with your new motor. That is not a normal occurrence.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you can with your engine serial number, dealers names, and your contact information. They will look into things for you.
was told it the motor stored a trouble code about a fuel sensor, but as it reset when motor was started - nothing done...last weekend gave the motor another try - will not rev to 6100 anymore after worked on...was at 5700 and motor slowed to idle, no alarm sounded....while the guage had been displaying the motor trim, when the motor malfunctioned - all of a sudden a "F" was displayed, to let me know I was in forward gear....changed by itself????
So, of the potential 8 weeks of usuage, the motor has been serviced 3 weeks by dealers!!
not sure I need 150 HO, if cann't get any speed out of it...what happens if I was pulling a skier during all the malfunctions???
But Evinrude has stated a file about it????
Please accept our apologies for your motor not performing as it should
Send another email to email@example.com with what you wrote here to inform them of the situation.
Forgot to mention i took 2 plugs out after my 5 min test and after driving 6hrs to get my boat, and they were completely loaded with oil.
Loaded with oil is not normal. Have you done the winterizing procedure by chance, or a lot of stop and starts ups? Any NO OIL codes or alarms?
Is the thermostat operating correctly and the motor warming up to around 140°F ?
One thing to check are the recirulation hoses, check valves, and fittings to make sure oil is not puddling in the crankcase. It is designed to circulate through the engine.
We are sorry to hear that you are having problems with your dealer. If they do not have the required version 6.x software, how did they rig and set up your motor, then check it over for the pre-delivery inspection form that you and the dealer have to sign?
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the engine serial number and a brief history of the motor. They will investigate. If you did not sign and receive a copy of the pre-delivery inspection form, PDI, mention that also.
