2006 225 eTec - 2 stroke - bogs on take off - dies when put into gear

2006 with 444hrs

Replaced: the reed valves, spark plugs and new computer change

 

Still has the same issue

 

The engine will start up and idle on its own.  It will eventually die on it's own.

After the engine is started, you cannot put the engine into gear without it dyeing out.

If you start the engine, let it idle, then full throttle it into gear, the boat takes off and flies without any issues.  Upper to mid throttle action is "ok," but WOT is still good.

The engine will rev up in neutral just fine.

 

Serial # 5217853

Model# E225HSLSCF

EMM 10070616

EMM date code 07B1H

 

Open to any suggestions.  Located in the League City, Texas area

Sounds to me like a fuel delivery issue.

 

You could try disconnecting your fuel line from the boat side and running from another 'known good' tank, just ensure 3/8" fittings.

 

An even simpler test that may diagnose a faulty or low pressured 'lift' pump would be to have someone manually pump the primer bulb while starting and running. That is a trick we use to identify a faulity fuel pump on a standard 2-stroke OB, but cannot gauarantee it correlates to the DI motor.

 

I'd just be wary of your situation, sounds like the OB could be leaning our and that's not good.

thanks for your suggestions

 

I've tried pumping up the ball valve, and it made no difference

If it runs then dies, most often there is a fuel problem or multiple problems that need to be addressed. The motor is already 12 years old and may not have had scheduled service when needed.

A trained technician should be checking the engine basics and run a computer report to give you an idea of what may be wrong. Some items that should be checked, serviced, or replaced are:

compression check

spark plugs - gap and index

exhaust sensor tube cleaned or replaced

thermostats and pressure valve

excessive carbon buildup in cylinders

check fuel pressure

replace vapor separator filter

check for service bulletins and software updates

boat's fuel system for restrictions and air bubbles - use vacuum gauge and clear hose

change fuel filters in boat and on motor

monitor engine system voltage
