1994 Yamaha 150HP Outboard

When I running around 4500 to 5000rpms for 5 or 10 minutes the motor (Yamaha TACH) will go off. The low or no oil symbol will go off. As I pull the throttle back to neutral the alarm goes off. The water stream comes out normal. I can ride for 10 or 15 minutes from 5-20mph then the alarm goes off. Sometimes it will go 20 minutes without the alarm doing anything. Any suggestions today I put a new water pump (Impella) on the unit could this help or is it sometime in the tach or oil pump??? thanks help I want to fish thanks

Good Afternoon BayouNola,
This Sounds Like A Loose Connection Problem,
The Tach Is Directly Related To The Charging System,Please Check Your Battery Terminals ,Clean And Secure Tightly To The Battery,
Unplug The engine Electrical Harness Check Clean And Re plug,
Check The Main Fuse For Corrosion And Rectify If Necessary,
If The Engine Was Getting Hot The Alarm Should Be A Continuous Alarm, If It Is a Intermittent Alarm It Is Oil Related !
If In Any Doubt Run With Pre Mixed Fuel,( 500 Ml's In 25 Ltr's Fuel) Until The Problem Is Solved.
Good Luck Gordon

Yamaha outboard 90/65 4stroke jet only getting 5000 rpms. New motor with 6 hours on19' flat bottom boat. Tach is flashing a engine symbol. Suggestions?


The amount of RPM's on a boat motor depend on a number of things...
1. Height if the motor in relation to the bottom of the boat. - too high and it over rev's.. Too low and it won't rev..
2. The correct size (O.D.) of the prop. Too large and you have mechanical interference or too large for the motor to spin...- ..Too small and the motor will over rev!!
3. The correct pitch of the prop. - Too large/big of pitch and the motor can't spin it..-.. too small and it will over rev the motor.
..... these are the big three...
Now, Make sure the carburetor butterfly(s) are opening exactly flat or vertical ...and not under/over opening..if this is a fuel injected motor...have the dealer check it out..
