Bill here. it's been 5 years already. Couldn't be more pleased with my 2015 Bennington 2373 RCW powered by the 2015 Evinrude E-Tec 250. But now it is time for that 5 yr tuneup!!!
We are glad to hear about how well your motor is working out for you. Be sure your dealer checks for any applicable service bulletins and updates for your motor in addition to the normal routine maintenance, lubrication, and cooling system servicing. Ask for a printed out copy of the engine report for your records.

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.
