Re: MORE E-TEC ENGINE PROBLEMS

Please accept my apologies for the issues that you have experienced with your Evinrude. That is not normal occurance as you can imagine.

 

Can you give me the serial number of the motor and your contact information and I will get it forwarded to the proper department?

Re: MORE E-TEC ENGINE PROBLEMS

Has anyone heard of starter problems on the 150hp? 2011 150 hp and the starter is not engaging. My local dealer is getting me right in, which is nice, since Forida Lobster season just started. Just curious if anyone else has had any problems?

Re: MORE E-TEC ENGINE PROBLEMS

 Yes I have seen and heard starter motor problems on all brands of outboards. I sure hope you do not have wing nuts and the battery mets the min CCA. A switched on tech will be easily able to diagonise a sluggish starter with a voltage drop test and fix the problem.
