2016 G2 250 HO

I have a 2016 G2 250 HO just got back from the shop was getting code 36 dealer replaced shift actuator, he also did some PM's to it. He changed spark plugs, lower unit oil, fuel filter, and water pump. Motor has 330hrs. Put in water for first time since getting it back and getting code 137 fuel delivery issue Motor would not rev up when putting on trailer. Only thing he messed with fuel was the fuel filter. What can it be? Thanks

The motor is not getting enough fuel which is the code 137 warning. It may or may not be related to the fuel filter replacement, but a dealer technician will have to check things over.

 

 

Code 137 

Vapor separator lower level fuel switch closed. Engine limited to 1200 RPM. Check for fuel level or fuel system restriction.

Check your fuel vent hose, if it has a low hanging loop in it, gasoline can accumulate and block the air flow to the tank. A vent hose should have a high loop in it just before the outside vent fitting to keep water spray from getting into the tank.

It could have been that the new fuel filter was not filled before installing. It could set a code before the engine fuel pump had time to fill the filter.

Good call !   Sometimes you forget to check the obvious or the easy things.
