2017 etec 25 hp overheating

I purchased my motor February 2017 and for a year have had nothing but problems. Motor overheats and goes into limp mode. The dealer warranted the power head after many failed attempts to fix the problem. The original head gasket failed due to a poorly designed cooling line in the motor causing motor to overheat. After waiting two months for warranty work the second motor started overheating after 25 hours.After another two months of replacing cooling line in second engine, that requires taking the power head off has failed again and motor overheated after 20mins in the water. What is wrong with the 25 hps cooling design. Can I get my money back, I'm not happy and have lost all trust in the motor and want to trade in for something different or receive a refund.

Re: 2017 etec 25 hp overheating

We are sorry to hear about your Evinrude and the experiences that you have experienced. They are not common situations.

 

The 25 and 30 HP Evinrude E-TEC outboards have been in production for almost 10 years now and do not have a propensity for overheating. There were some early impeller supplier quality issues at first but those were taken care of years ago.

 

What did the dealer say caused the overheating? Did the impeller appear severely damaged or melted looking? If the wrong impeller was installed,the motor could overheat as the improved impeller generates more water pressure than before and the hevier relief springs in later motors require the correct pump.

 

Do you flush the engine on a flusher muff without taping up the vent holes underneaht the anti-ventilation plate? Have you started the motor out of water even for an instant? Is the motor the correct length and mounting position on your boat? These are just some of the reasons that could cause a repeat of overheating conditions.

 

You may contact Evinrude After Sales Support with the engine serial number, dealer name, and a history of your engine servicing. They will look into your claim.

I've never experienced any situations above. I only run in fresh water in the everglades. I just got back a newly rebuilt motor and it overheated 5 times within an hour.
