I'm due early next spring for my first service on my e-Tec . It's a 50 hp. Was wondering what the average cost and time it takes to do it. Closest dealer is an hour and a half away so I will be waiting for it. Thanks
Who do you go to ? I live in the Pittsburgh area and was looking at a dealer in West Virginia but I see there is one in new Kensington pa.. Don't know anything about either dealer. Any help is appreciated.

We cannot give a price as dealers have different hourly charges and some may have a flat-rate special for the 3 year/300hr. service.
Depending on the engine condition and running environment, here is a list of common parts used in a typical routine service for a 40 throught 60 HP E-TEC. If in saltwater, there may be anodes and additional parts and labor needed. Don't forget to add gear oil, grease, shop supplies, environmental costs, etc. It is always best to talk to the dealer first for a rough estimate or an explanation of parts and what is performed.
