I have lost 8 weeks on the water this summer due to issues with my E-Tec 150, brand new last August. All I want to know is when does this company decide a motor is a lemon and replaces it so that my brand new boat spends the summer on the lake rather in the repair shop. I don't want any more "we are sorry and understand your frustration". I just want the motor replaced. I will never trust it as it has left me stranded with a boat load of friends and family three different times in the span of three months. Just want this simple question answered. Serial # E150 SNL 05441613

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.
The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
Bluewater Bill, I have just sent an email to the address you list in this thread. We have a recuring fuel pump problem with our 40 hp e-tec on our 18' pontoon boat. We are hoping for a fast response!
Thanks, Jim in Wisconsin
