First, before I begin to tell my dissapointing story, let me say that since my 6.5HP at age 12, I have owned 4 Evinrudes and always been a spokesperson for the Evinrude products. Evinrude has let me down, big time.
My 2016 G2 250HP has developed into a nightmare and it all began with the pressure transmitter leaking into the wiring harness going to the EMM.
I can honestly say that even when, and if, the motor is finally returned and claim to be fixed, I will probably always be stressed out and concerned when I take it out on the water - which is not what anyone wants in a $30,000.00 piece of machinery.
We are sorry to hear about the experiences that you had with your Evinrude outboard, that is not normal and we would assume that your dealer has corrected everything to your satisfaction by now. If not, please contact Evinrude at http://www.brp.com/en/forms/contact-us.html and they will look into your situation.

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.
