G2 175hp 2017 issues

Hi folks,

I’m new to this motor and I’m getting frustrated with the little bugs and my service support.

 

Have a new 175hp 2017 G2 on my 23’ bay boat. After receiving the boat and dropping it in the water I immediately noticed the Fuel, Speed and Hours were not working. I have Trim, Temp and RPM. It was Memorial Day weekend so I chose to fuel up and keep topped off. Everything went fine. Wanted a 2 stroke because I like the hull shot to plane in a choppy bay. I held off on taking it right back as it is in the water in my back yard and I needed to arrange timing for bottom paint and other rigging. The next week I’m about to hop on to plane as I’m leaving to fish and the RPM’s dives… I rest it and restart and it starts then shuts down. With an eclectic burning smell…. Take it out and find it’s a burn starter. (Always started on crank one in one fast turn). Now lets jump to service. Apparently the new dealer I have purchased it from is not up to date on the newest generation (not enough classroom time to have the newest software). So they take it from Miami to St. Augustine to the parent shop. Comes back with a new starter and they are clueless why it burnt out. Buuuut the gauges issues are not fixed and still are not. It was my birthday weekend when it returned and has been running well until last week. I get a code 34 oil fault engine shutdown mode… its reading 25% oil. So I get home at 1100 RMP and fill the oil to make sure and yes I was at about 25% based on my refill. Figure, oh boy here we go now I have to top off the oil every time I go out until these folks can fix my other gauges. Yesterday I was 5 miles across the bay running nicely at 4500 RPM and 151 degrees. Anyone want to guess what happened??? Code 34!!! 5 miles in nasty bay chop at 1100 RPM’s… any input is appreciated. TY

The code 34 experienced means Oil Solenoid Open Circuit detected.  The on-engine oil level would have no bearing upon this fault being displayed.

 

I would suggest a close examination of the connector at the oiler.

Re: G2 175hp 2017 issues

Hello,

I have my evinrude e-tec G2 150 H.O 2017. Its a good V6 engine. The problem is that i´ve spent 4 times at the dealer with the code 34 every time. All we do to solve the problem is to adjust a bracket and to plug in the oil pump contact. I dont know why this occurs so often. The engine has about 210 hrs on it. Been using it carefully. Please help. Replace to whole engine with a new one or what? Because i dont wanna hear one more time to just adjust those 2 things becuase some engine hours later were back at square one. 

I need a good solution for this. Please help me.

It is not a common problem. If it reoccurs, then the root cause was not corrected peviously. If intermittent, those problems sometimes are harder to find.

 

As with most engine situations a trained tech should be able to narrow down the component(s) and repair the abnormality. Evinrude has assistance available to their dealers with hard to find troubles.

 

Code 34 is an electrical open circuit in the oil injector, connectors, or wiring - not an adjustment.

Your Evinrude has the trim-assist programming in which you can choose the profile that the motor will use automatically depending on the type of boat that you tell the EMM.

 

See your dealer for more information or to set it up for you if you do not have the touch-screen display or iLink.

150 H:O 2017 In the shop 6 times after just 200 hrs and 1 year!

[ Edited ]

do you think i can get a nw engine? The money back? Evinrude no maintenece for 5 years or 500 hours. After 1 year and 200 hrs i´ve been in the shop 6 times. How do you explain that? Why does like 50 % of all evinrude brake? Everyone keep saying it ios not normal for these engines but clearly it is. I have hade 3 Evinrude engines were 2 of them have had big oil faults. Thats deeply serious. I think we need to change the emm oil tank, oil pump and oil sensor and the elcetronics for the oil pump etc. Or just a new engine. I want professional help.
