Just putting it out there , I have a 2012 E-TEC175 with 3 hrs on it and it is stalling at a idle , had it out ran fine checked the temp at it is running at 159. I hope this is not a start of a lot of repairs that was why I bought a new engine to not have any problems but I guess stuff happens "its a boat" put a call into service rep waiting for a call back. In any case i still love my E-TEC.
Just to update my post the tech looked at motor, and it appears to be something is wrong either in gear case or fuel pump The boat has too come out of water I guess I will not be "spending more time on the water". Hopefully everything will be fixed right the service tech working on the boat is awesome. Well are kiding aside I still love my E-TEC. I will follow up to let everyone know how I make out.
