I'd take a good look at the fuel line and the pickup inside the tank.
If I remember correctly, that year still had a carburetor. Therefore you have a mechanical fuel pump. Pump is a pull type not a push pump as used in injected systems. With a pull pump any small hole will let air into the system.
The good part is that you can easily make a repair using rubber fuel line and mini clamps as the pressure is very low and not prone to blowing apart like an injected system would.

How many gallons does the gas tank hold on a 1997 scout 162 boat

Hi James:
I tried to track this down without success.
If it were me and I really needed to know I would fill a spare outboard tank and put it in the boat and then go and play until the boat coughed and ran out of fuel.
-I'd then connect the engine to the spare tank and continue to play or go home depending on how far away I was.
- Once at a fueling station, I'd fill the tank, and record the amount of fuel needed.
- It can also be a good idea to check the actual amount of fuel consumed (determined by how many gallons to fill the tank) against hours running at different speeds, and also the gas gauge indication when on the step and at idle.
- My personal rule????? never trust the gas gauge, and always start with a full tank.

Driving my truimph tr6 down the road and it cut of for no reason. Tried to cranck it back up but would not start . Just filled it up that morning

Could be many, many things but if you just filled it up you may have a bad evaporator gas/vapor separator and that would allow gas to enter evap system when expecting gas and kill engine but it would later start again until the gas did it again moving. If just never starts again then possibly your fuel pump is failing and could be related to not working well with full tank. Other things would be computer, if crankshaft sensor is fried then car wont run at all, any sensor that shorts out can spike voltage and computer shuts down car but will usually start again but stall. Ignition coil pack could be fried, that sends power to the plugs. Bad injectors can cause a stall and no start.

My car ran out of fuel. I filled it with a gallon. Now my car starts but cranks and stops after few seconds. Do I need to bleed air from the fuel lines? How?

No by you running the car completely out of gas and then putting 1 gallon back in tank, you stired up the residue in tank and the fuel filter is plugging up with all the residue. The best thing to do is remove the fuel filter and replace it with a new filter. Hope this will help you.

About a gallon of water was put into my gas tank by mistake by my idiot friend. The car been started and ran for a min before I realized what was up when the car died and wouldnt restart. My friend removed...

First put in 5 gallons of gas or more and also add 91% rubbing alcohol in the tank - 2 full bottles

also replace the fuel filter now - before you move on - unless you have a lot of time to waste - change the filter now - and you will be ok.

youre best thing is always start with the cheapest route...i mean it can be several of the following things, such as fuel related problems. you may not be getting a consistent amount of fuel to your injectors, or your injectors could be partially clogged....try this first, get a bottle of fuel injection cleaner at any auto parts store..and then dump the whole bottle of it in your gas tank and then fill your tank with gas....this will help mix it up with the fuel..and then see if that helps...only put the entire bottle in because they usually tell you a full bottle has to be mixed with a complete fill up...if that doesnt do it, then it could be your fuel filter, try that first and let me know

Stall upon running out of gas but won't start up again with gas

Remove the air cleaner and pour about a quarter cup of gasoline into the carburetor or throttle body. Do not stand near the engine when cranking it -- fire/small explosion hazard.

Filling with gas

There is a fuel tank vent tube that runs down the filler tube to let the air out of the tank as you fill it, these tubes get kinked, replace the tube, this is part of the filler neck assembly so the whole thing must be changed out.
