This is the best engine I have ever owned, but then again, my dealer is the best too - they have BRP certified techs, not wannabe car mechanics! How your engine is set up can make a huge diff, as can their ability to diagnose and fix an issue. The factory refers people to my dealer, so I know I have the best working behind me and my engine. Awesome engine - it hardly uses gas or oil esp now that I have some miles on it. And love that it gets up and boogies!

We are sorry to hear about your Evinrude and that it is not meeting your expectations.
Please read my response and questions to you where you posted in the OWNERS ZONE forum.

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.
