ETEC 75hp 2005 stalling after service

Hi, my engine is in an approved dealers getting a full service. Was ready to pick up but apparently keeps stalling on test.
Has new plugs and a water separator installed on their advice.
Other than that, they have found some solids in the fuel filter.
Any help appreciated. Want to get the boat out asap.

As long as an engine has the proper proportion of fuel and air, adequately compressed, and ignited at the correct time, it will run well.  If any one of those items are out of spec, then operational efficiency is compromised.


Your dealer has to troubleshoot your motor competently to find the reason for poor running.


Solids in the filter is a dead give a way for possible contamination of the  fuel system and injectors. Talk to your service manager and the tech.  Evinrude also has a dealer support team to assist those with hard to diagnose problems. Insist that your dealer take advantage of the team, if needed.


Has the muffler filter and the VST filter been replaced and is the motor idling at the correct temperature?
