Motor issues

I got my ranger with a evinrude in feb, same thing well that was one issue out of many
Wish I would of got different motor, but I like what evin rude was offering with maintain ce now I know why
I wish they would replace my motor it spends more time in the shop than on the water it the biggest regret I've ever had buy an evin rude
4 months old been in the shop more then water
Every time I gone out I have had issues
1 trim would stop going down took two trips to the shop to fix it
2 over heated
3 over heat alarm still going off every time (turn off it rests it's shelf)
4 computer issue alarm goes off if you run it over 5 mins
5 bad injector
6 motor decelerates after running top speed for 3-5 mins

O by the way my new motor now has a skegg that has been scraped up pretty good due to trim stuck in down
Wish they would replace it

Re: Motor issues

We are sorry to hear of your experiences that you mentioned. That is not normal for an Evinrude. Could you post the engine serial number and your contact information and I will forward it to the appropriate department for review. Again, accept my apologies for inconveniences.

Re: Motor issues

What rpm does the engine reach at full throttle with a normal load of people, gear, and fuel aboard?
