Re: E TEC 30 overheating

Thanks Bill.

                        I did print out and give to him the service bulletin about the uprated impellor and springs dated 2012 when it had the service , but I am forced to repeat that I am worried that he did not change them .

                       Another thing has   worried me , when speaking to someone from the dealer she mentioned running it in the river and not finding any overheating problems, well that was either done before they dropped the gearbox or they dropped the gearbox found the broken impellor , put the gearbox back and then ran it in the river with the damaged impellor still in( because they did not have one in stock). Either way the engine should not have been run untill the bits had been ckecked  especially as I had said I wanted everything replaced anyway.

                       I will wait to make judgement untill I go to get my boat but it looking horribly likely that the fault does not lay with the engine but the dealership.

To troubleshoot an overheating problem you start with the basics and work your way up, something like climbing a tree - one branch at a time.

 

You do not say what the model number is. Some Evinrude E-TEC 225 HP motors have service bulletins concerning overheating. See an authorized Evinrude dealer  to find out if they may apply to your motor.

 

If you work on the motor yourself, purchase a factory service manual from your dealer and follow all warnings and procedures.

 

Replace the water pump assembly, not just the impeller. If you do not have one, temporarily connect a water pressure gauge to the motor and monitor the pressures at all speeds. Compare the results with the published specifications. All testing has to be in the water, not on the flusher hose.

Re: E TEC 30 overheating

I have a 2018 e tec 25hp. I've had it for about 8 months now. While I was running it it just bogged down and went into limp mode then I'd wait a second then it would run fine for another 5 minutes then bogg down. Same thing happened over and over. No LED lights indicated anything so idk I'm lost.

Re: E TEC 30 overheating

Your engine is covered under warranty so you should have your dealer check or repair it.

Re: E TEC 30 overheating

Because there were no indicator lights, it may be something fuel related such as water in the gas, phase-separation, fuel pump or gas  line connector issues, or something simple such as a venting problem in the fuel tank.

 

As Rick said, it should be warranty if it is a factory part gone bad or not operating as it should.
