150 etec hesitation

I'm told by my dealer this is normal.

If I accelerate on plane quickly it runs great..

If I'm putting along, then slowly accelerate through,around 2000 rpms, there is a slight hesitation then it powers on.

I'm told  this is the change from stratis fuel too normal.

it does it almost every time, if i go through the power too slowly.

just looking for some verification.

thanks mike

What is the model number of your motor?


Be sure your dealer has the latest software updates installed in your motor, ask the technician, that the throttle position sensor calibration is done, and that the top rpm with a normal load about is at the upper end of the optimum rpm range or change propeller size if needed.

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.
