Outboards are finicky about fuel, probably don't like ethanol. Try some high test.

Use a bottle of yellow HEET dry gas to remove any moisture problem in the fuel.

Clean / replace air filter.

Engine seems to stall when first starting in cold weather after its warm it runns great


Will it stay running if you keep your foot on the gas? If yes it sounds like you might have a bad Idle air control motor.

My 175 hp 1998 johnson (carbeurated model) is hard to start. When started it seems to run ok, but after motoring for 10 or so minutes, will just die.


Sounds to me that your carb is plugged up. I would take it apart and clean it. Also make sure your idle mixture screw is set to 1 1/2 turns out to start and adjust from there.

4 cyl Engine starts and idles ok...give it throttle and it dies


I need to get a clear mental picture of what exactly is happening.

With this said, you stated that the car "runs fine" until warmed up.

Q: When you start the car when cold it idles fine?
Q: If you allow the car to idle until "fully" warmed does the car stall?
Q: As the car begins to warm up, Does the RPM fluctuate abnormally?
Q: Does the car Only stall when you press on the gas pedal or does it stall just sitting and idling in addition to pressing the gas pedal?
Q: If you can drive it while cold does the car stall during acceleration when warm or only at Stop Signs / Lights?
Q: If you wait 20min or so, can you start the car again?
Q: How many miles are on the car?

Motor shuts off as soon as I start to accelerate.


Might be a fault in the side stand sensor, you cant go far with the side stand out, or if the sensor has not sensed the stand is up.

93'Saturn engine problem:


engine coolant temp sensor is most likely cracked.. I know it sounds strange but pull it if your looking at the engine it is on the right side of the head Will make the car hard to start, smoke, and the idle will often race up and down.. easy to fix 15 dollars or so..
