Re: MORE E-TEC ENGINE PROBLEMS

I bought an eye 130 up with 58 hrs on it. It wouldn't get to the recommended full throttle revs. Reported lifted the motor still only getting 4800 revs. Took in for a service at 150 hrs and the exhaust valve seized. Mid section full replacement valve actuator replaced as it broke trying to move seized valve. Evinrude claim my problem not serviced annually. I bought on the 3 year no service requirement. Worst purchase ever $7600 in the hole. Thanks evinrude.

Re: MORE E-TEC ENGINE PROBLEMS

If the motor was used in saltwater, the operator's guide says to lubricate the motor annually. If in fresh water that is normally not done until the 3 year/300 hour service - whichever comes first.

The top rpm being too low also may have contributed to carboning up of the exhaust tuning valve. What size boat, top speed, and what size prop is on the motor?

 

Email Evinrude with the engine serial number, dealer name, and what you wrote here. They will look into your situation.

Re: MORE E-TEC ENGINE PROBLEMS

Just wondering if anyone has had a similar issue as I do. When I start my 150 etec it starts ok but when I’m trawling it feels like there is a miss. Sometimes it cuts out all together and a battle to get it started. I have also check when it starts missing if I floor it it seems ok but then a throttle down a little the miss starts again. I have replaced all fuel lines new fuel. New filters new plugs and all injectors have been cleaned. Any ideas.

What is the complete model number of your motor?

 

When is the last time a complete 300hr./3-yr. service has been done, including idle temperature checks, compression readings, fuel pressure tests, VST filter replacement, exhaust sensor tube cleaning, and the restrictor jet inspected in the hose?

What did the engine report printout reveal?

If you bought the motor used with an unknown service history, it is recommended that the 3yr/300 hour service be performed along with a check for all service bulletins and updates to have a known starting time for future maintenance. In addition, any other issues can be addressed at that time.
