Power Head

2009 90 hp etec problem. Number one and number 3 have 115 lb pressure. # 2 was 20 lb. Was running at 4000 rpm and engine cut out. No alarm. no lights engine sounded fine. Started up and was trolling and was at 1500 rpm back to dock. At home i pulled the cover off and found the oil line to # 2 was broken. The other 2 oil lines on the same side of the engine were all brittle and broke just touching them. Talked to a few mechanics and none have heard of this before. the lines are covered in heat sleeves. Does the computer only monitor the oil pump? What if a line breaks such as this case. Motor had 300 hour service not by evinrude but done properly. Motor has less than 400 hours

Re: Power Head

Contact your dealer for an inspection and ask them to contact dealer support if they think there is an oil hose problem.


You can also email the serial number and your situation to   brp.care@brp.com
