Dont have the manual in front of me...recollect that there's two types of warnings. The pulsating warning is oil (starts with 30 minutes of oil left) or the fuel filter (or sperator, something like that) may have water in it. Running outboard with cover off, is a little black box that would have a red light lit if that's the case. If oil full & no red light, may be oil injection system...would also check to make sure lines aren't pinched, etc. Mine has been specific to oil the two times its gone off.

The full non-pulsating is engine overheat. Not sure beyond that.

Not much, but hopefully gets you going.

I have a 1999 28ft JC pontoon boat with a 150 mercury xr6 with a long shaft the motor is in its lowest position and I'm having cavataion problom

I have a 24 ft wi a 90hp. Cavatation usually results from improper trim. When reaching plane, watch bow. If bouncing, adjust trim so bouncing stops, then you are in proper trim for weight. Just like an airplane. Trim changes with number of passengers, moving passengers, etc.
Best of luck, captain.

My 2012 mercury pro xs 250 cranks extremely slow in the morning but starts. Battery good no problem after it is warm

Seems like this is outboard and Marine or boat category would get you answers. If 4 cycle check oil weight.

Have a 2012 Mercury Pro XS 200, while going across the lake this morning the boat just started losing speed and finally stopped. Now will not even start

First thing to check is the fuel line and connections. It is pretty common for an air leak to develop on the hose. I way to test this is to start the engine while someone is pumping the fuel line ball. The next thing is if it is a powerstroke. Those are so touchy and get sediment build up so bad if they are not used regularly that they need to be cleaned an maintained annually.

Need some more info to answer your question. Will the motor not turn over at all or will it turn over and just not crank up?

When i put my mercury 150 into gear it hits really

See if you can turn down the base idle some. Then check your gear lube, sometimes you can get an airpocket and the top end is dry. Last, if still not fixed, see if you can adjust the cables so that the throttle RPM changes after the gears do.

You want a little lag in the throttle so you don't take out a dock when coming onshore.
