Outboard engine problems and issues? Then use this forum and maybe someone can help.Your boat may operate just fine, and then all of a sudden its speed drops to a crawl.
One possible reason why boats no longer achieve appropriate speeds at full throttle is a spun prop. This occurs when the bond between the propshaft and blades are broken, which subsequently causes the rubber insert to spin independently. Even if your boat is operational, riding with a spun blade places the propeller at risk for damage. Depending on the severity of the problem, it could leave your boat dead in the water unless the problem is fixed ASAP.
Why Does My Outboard Sputter at Full Throttle?
Have you checked your propeller for debris? Cutting away any entangled debris such as this should solve your problem. Another possible cause is an air leak in the fuel line. Air leaks in the fuel line are typically created through either natural wear or damage to the line.
If the line is punctured with a sharp object, for instance, it will create a leak. Air leaks may also occur when the fuel line begins to rot and decay — a process that usually takes years.
How Do Outboard Motor Shifter & Throttle Controls Work
The only way to permanently fix an air leak is to replace the entire fuel line, as plugging it up will likely result in future problems later down the road. We are open and working our normal schedule.

I would really appreciate thoughts on what the problem could be. Here are some symptoms and some observations: --no increase of RPM over about 3, under load. The engine is a model year two-cycle with just under hours and it is not abused.
I just did a water pump [service] a few weeks ago. It went smoothly, though coincidental this problem should happen now. Aside from the trim cap seal the engine has been trouble free, though when running normally. The engine does not seem to get the Montauk with 20 gallons of gas and me at lbs over about MPH.What is wrong with this outboard? No power at running speed
I read others with the same set up get 40 to MPH. With this current problem, the engine almost seems like it is running on two-cylinders instead of three. I did not have a chance to look at the plugs yet. Thanks for any help--Jim. Yes, it does, doesn't it? Since these Yamaha thee cylinder motor were rather notorious for loose spark plug boots, why not see if that's the problem?
Always start with the simple and obvious things first, no matter how unlikely you think they may be. That's because there is no load on the motor! Why do so many folks think that revving an outboard in neutral somehow tells you something or fixes something?
I've spent my entire life around boats and always have, and continue to, witness guys at the dock revving their motors in neutral over and over while complaining they "just don't understand why it doesn't work when I put it in gear. I agree with Tom I would change out the plugs, sounds like you have one that is fouled. Check spark plug wire connections. Under hood fuel filter Fuel pump Good Luck.
He's a High tiered certified Yamaha tech. I ran the engine dry last fall during winterization and treated the fuel. Oh well. I revved the engine out of gear to try to determine if the oil protection circuit was engaging. Not sure if that applies to in or out of gear but thought it could help the diagnosis. Thanks for any help.
Switching tanks will not bypass this. Also pull the plugs and see if they look the same or if one is blacker or wetter than the others. When the carb is empty replace the screw. Carefully let the rag evaporate somewhere away from any ignition source--no more clogged jets, next time boating :- Running the engine, with the fuel line disconnected till it stops, still leaves enough fuel in the carbs to gum-up the jets if left unused for a long time. He freed it up and cleaned all the carbs, re-installed and set up the engine in his tank.
This make sense, when I looked at the plugs prior to dropping it off with him, cylinder 3's plug was wetter than 1 and 2.Suzuki outboards are produced by Suzuki Marine. They can range from 2. Outboard motors are attached externally to the stern. Common problems in Suzuki outboard motors can be easily diagnosed from home.
Inspect the primer bulb if the engine is not starting. If there is no resistance, fuel is not entering the engine. The primer bulb and entire fuel line may have to be replaced. Check the spark plugs and filter if there is a sudden and noticeable drop in power while the engine is at full throttle. The plugs may simply need cleaning or replacing, or perhaps water has gotten into the fuel filter.
Also, check to see if there is a kink in the fuel line. These are basic, do-it-yourself repairs. Inspect the propeller for damage. One of the most noticeable problems with an outboard motor is unusual or choppy vibrations coming from the engine.
This abnormal movement may indicate a bent, broken or altered propeller. Turn the motor off, pull the motor out of the water and visually inspect the propeller for damage.

I purchased this spring from a friend that's father passed away. Boat was fogged for winter but sat for approx. He had professionally serviced regularly. Sometimes it seems to surge slightly up then down, if I hit waves it sometimes surges down, but most of the time it won't get past mark. No alarms going off? Does have a crack on the bracket that holds the choke solenoid not sure that this would effect anything?
I would think that only on the starting end of things. I replaced gas hose, bulb water separator filter twice, didn't see water in gas when dumped water seperator filter Gas into a jar, put a new fuel filter strainer kit in it, changed oil injection oil out, new gas, sea foam Like new yet. They are lost. This Is not an option. Seems they don't want to deal with older suzuki. I thought suzuki dealer dealt in everything not just new motors? Getting deep in dead end trouble shooting costs.
Note the day I put fuel pump diaphragm kit in it did run very well for about 2hours? Not sure if that was by coincidence? Went back to running poor soon after. Thank you all for the help. Tags: None.
If yes, would check float settings on those carbs. If no, then need to check pulse coils for those cylinders. Also check gear counting coil if not right distance from teeth throws timing out. Another possibility would be the TPS throttle position sensorit could be breaking down at half to full throttle, this would affect timing, but generally should show a code?
Also, when they rebuilt the low pressure fuel pump, did they look to see if the two clear discs check valves were intact, they can't be replaced unless the pump is replaced. If they did a good job cleaning carbs then I would look into those things I mentioned above.Went out Sunday and didn't even make it out of the harbour.
Engine started fine, revs fine in neutral but once over revs in gear loses power under load. Has new plugs, fuel lines all seem ok, just seems it wants to kick on but splutters and drops back. Didn't stall at all just lack of power. Can't get it in for service until jan 2 either so anyone got any ideas that may solve my problem.
Losing power under load - problem solved
Have 3 weeks off work starting today as well so spewin to say the least. Any ideas appreciated. Went out again today with an empty boat on the river and same issue, got a bit more power but I. Assume that's. From reduced weight in the boat. Where abouts you located? One of my good mates is a marine mech. He could probably have a look at it for ya before christmas if you want.
In your fuel? I had this is a jet ski. Couldn't rev it but ok at low revs. Put a additive in the fuel to get rid of the water, 10 minutes later, good as gold. Similar thing happen to me yesterday. Think I have a faulty injector. Can't get anyone to look at it till the 10th of January. Sux when I have a bit of time off over xmas.
Sounds like the CDI power pack.Discussion in ' Outboards ' started by willyyesMar 25, Log in or Sign up. Boat Design Net. Mercury 70 hp bogs down at full throttle. Anyone have a problem wiht a merc that when you open to full throttle it runs fine for a few and then bogs down?
It will run fine at half throttle after that. It is snot over heating and it has a new water pump and new fuel filters. The tank is venter and all lines going to the motor are fine.
We just bough the boat, used, but the previous owner really kept it as his baby.
Evinrude 70hp cutting out/bogging down on throttle
By looking at it, you really couldn't tell its a 91 key west. Prestine condition. But the motor? He has a mech that works on it and it is in very good condition. I know his mechanic, I use him also. But dollars are few and fare between.
Any suggestions? This is critical for correct diagnosis. FrostyMar 25, Australia where god kissed the earth. Hi Frosty how you going??? Hold your horses there Piston we havnt heard yet. Those 3 pot mercs were bad for this. FrostyMar 26, Wynand NMar 26,
