SOURCE: Chrysler 70 HP outboard motor dies when pushing throttle

I have found that 99 percent of the time when this happens it is carb related. It is very possible that you picked a a small piece of grit or trash in the high speed jet of one, or both, of your carbs. I would be willing to bet that pulling the carbs and cleaning them will resolve your problem. I am almost positive that will fix your problem, mainly because it sounds like you've already tried everything else. I had this same problem last season, and what had happened was I left the vent open on my fuel tank, we got a shower, and I pulled just a small bit of water into the carb and that was it, she would not do anything over idle until I pulled the carbs and cleaned them. i even put the water muffs on it and let it run in the yard for about an hour thinking that it would burn the water out, but i was wrong. Anyway, clean the carbs and i think you'll be in good shape, Good Luck.

You're not getting enough fuel. Check if there is a fuel filter than needs changed or if your gasoline is contaminated.

SOURCE: 2004 mercury 50hp 2 stroke loses power at high throttle

Be sure of the oil/gas mixture. There are also altitude variations for oil /gas mixtures (which are very minimal). Be sure that your fuel cell is properly vented, and that the vent isn't obstructed (thumb screw in the fuel cap).

In my 2000 sebring I would be driving and lose power no throttle response,everything else still on. It was the crank sensor. Went to auto zone for free scan and that was one of the many that came up. Replaced and everything ran great after that.

My Capri dumps fuel has spark won't start

If it's "dumping" fuel into the engine, the computer has it cold start mode. Stay off the throttle pedal when try to start after a good while to allow fuel to clear. If it won't start then, you've a fuel regulation problem on cold start. But do wait a good while for fuel to clear fron engine, then try to start without touching the throttle. It's meant to be this way.

The first thing to check would be the compression. As long as both cylinders are with in 10 psi of each other you should be okay. Both cylinders need to be at least 100 psi. That would be the minimum for a motor to start and run. It should read aprox- 150 -- 165 psi. Also i would check for a possible exhaust leak, that would cause the motor to bog down because the carb is breathing in the exhaust fumes. Try running the motor with the hood up to see if you have a leak.

If it runs OK, and just won't idle the problem is probably your idle air control. Looking at the front of the motor it's just back and toward the the passenger side from where the air intake tube conects to the throttle body. Looks like a little round canister about 1 1/2 inches in diamater and 2 1/2 inches long with a plug in on the end. Usually held on by two small bolts, although some models thread into the side of the throttle body.
