Evirude trim problems

I have a 115 hp evinrude motor.  My trim is not working.  The motor is making the right soundsrf  and I have filled it with oil but I still can't get it to work.  I changed both seleinoids.  What is causing the problem?

From the sounds of it according to your post, there is an internal problem which could be the oil pump or the various valves or seals that have to hold pressure.


Had there been bad seals or water in the oil at one time?


Was it recently low on oil where the pump could have air-locked ?

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.
