Assuming that it is an outboard that you are making a statement on and not a car or truck, take the unit to a service center and have the engine tuned
possible rubber bits in the fuel pump valves restricting fuel flow , in the main jets if carby

Testimonial: "YES MATE 200HP MERCURY OUTBOARD IT WAS SERVICED AND TUNED WITH A NEW ECU, WOULD A DIFFERENT POWER HEAD BUT SAME LEG AND PROP BE ANY DIFFERENT IN IN THIS ISSUE."

  • Bill Boyd Dec 05, 2016

    I cannot see if there would be any difference.
    outboard engines are just ordinary engines standing on end so a tune up may not be the answer
    failing to respond to the accelerator (throttle lever)indicates a problem with the MAP/VAF sensors, throttle position sensor if fitted ignition control module not setting he timing right and other faults common to a car engine
    could be low fuel pressure to the injectors as in venting of the fuel tank not working properly, pressure regulator not operating correctly or fuel pump not supplying sufficient pressure
    if it has a data terminal , then have the mercury service center connect a code reader to check for faults in the systems that would be stored in the ECM unit

I have a 1999 jeep cherokee that has intermitant transmission problems 1)shifting up it wind out to 2k-3k before shifting 2) at higher speed it feels as if it slips out of overdrive rpm increase but speed...


It will shift out of overdrive upon increasing throttle , pulling hills and so on. Your overdrive probably kicks in around 35 to 45mph and kicks back out as you increase throttle. Electrically controled speed sensor to control the response. Overwise the engine would bog down to a stall. Over drive is just that. It changes the gearing ratio to over drive meaning less then final gear 4 to 1 down to 4 to 3 etc more direct drive ratio to lessen consumtion of fuel with less stress on engine. Have shift speed sensor adjusted. Don't drive in overdrive in city if most driving is under 45mph

Tilt Steering Wheel lever appears broken - locked in up position - what is involved in repair or replacement? 97 T&C


This is a simple mechanical issue (no electronics involved).

Remove the plastic housing from around the steering column and ignition area. It is held with screws from under the column area. There are two screws from the top that you may need a short screwdriver to reach. Some are phillips and some are hex head. Just take your time it will come.

Once open you will see interlocking teeth or "gears" on the top of the column. One in mounted to the column the other engages into the tilt release teeth. This is the tilt mechanism. The top lever is lifted up by the adjusting lever. When the teeth are disengaged the wheel can be moved up and down.

Look to see the linkage is intact from the lever to the top gear. Pull the adjusting lever to see it is working and trying to lift the top gear up.

It can stick. Use WD40 if struck. Try shaking the steering wheel up and down while operating the adjusting lever (right side of column behind the turn signal lever).

Still struck? Use a screwdriver to lift the gears apart. The wheel will tilt easily now. Move to the desired position and engage the gears again. It will now be locked in the position you want.

It sounds complex but it is not. Just take your time and it will be obvious.

Note that while working you should have the negative cable removed from the battery. You do not want to trigger the air bag or damage the electronics. With the negative cable removed you will not have a problem.

I want to change my big foot 60hp from power tilt to power trim how do i do that??? 90850260 that is my serial number what is the year model?


I dont knowthe year ,that should be stamped on the id plate. As for tilt and trim----- in the lowest position the leg will only move slowly out and up that is when it is in the trim mode, after that it goes into the tilt mode and the leg travels considerably faster, this works going up and down,putting the leg down, it will travel faster until the last foot or so then it goes into the trim mode automaticaly and travels slower but with more power---you cant split them.It needs the extra power to be able to"trim"" the boat whilst it has the water pressure against it at ,say 25 knots. To test what i am saying ,puthe leg down as far as it will go ,stand on the anti cavitation plate and push the button to raise the leg .You will see it will only traveh ashort way out and up be fore stopping because it doesnt have the extra power to lift you as it did in the first foot and a half.thatis the system and you cant change it if that is unclear take it to a dealer ,he may explain it better---------"youdoit"

I have problem changing into 2nd and 3rd gears, both up and down.


Sounds like a problem with the sycros. You could try draining the box and filling it with 75/90 syn gear oil, a gearbox additive wouldn't do it any harm. I think they hold just over 2 ltrs.
Unfortunately if that doesn't work a second hand or a new box is going to be the only cure.
In a manual gearbox there is no filter. The filler should be half way up the casing. Not sure what type of bung is used.
