SOURCE: Evinrude gives me a 30 sec. beep telling me I have no oil...

Disconnect the oil injection and mix your fuel. There are alot of problems with the Ficht systems.

SOURCE: I have a Evinrude Ficht 135 that Runs Ok but won't go in to gear, forward or reverse. Any ideas?

Disconnect the shift cable and see if the problem is with the shift box or the lower unit. If the lower, remove the bottom plug and look for water or metal where there should be clean oil.

If the shift box, take to the marina- they were a bear. Even just for cables.

2002 115 hp Evinrude ficht was working fine but last trip to the lake started acting up rough idle and when it did start idling it would idle up to 4000 rpm.


The only time I've seen an engine act like that, it was either the carb / injectors set to high or malfunctioning, or someone put the wrong fuel in the tank (usually too high or low octane). Check the filters, air, fuel, oil, make sure they're clean and not damaged. If there's any doubt, new one. Make sure the oil is clean, rub between fingertips to feel grit. If that wasn't it, I'd check the throttle control and cable for damage. Hope I helped.

Getting water in carbs not from fuel tank it happens when I put it in forward it's a 140 evinrude looper


Your engine should be sealed enough to prevent this..unless you have the engine mounted so low it idles under water...???.. There is a seal that goes between the lower cowl pieces and the engine, a seal around the engine cover(cowl)...and seals that surround all wires and cables.

My Evinrude Ficht 200 fuel injected, while running above 200 RPM has no problems but when idling the no oil alarm goes off and there is plenty of oil in the tank.


Its the oil sensor in the oil tank...does the oil line bulb stay pumped tight? If not. you need to do some investigating...or replace the bulb and line..

I have an Evinrude 7.5hp outboard motor.Mod# 8RC1A SN# 0178194. What Year of manufd? How to mix fuel & what octane fuel to use & what oil to use? Help me go fishing, thanks.


91 octane rating ( no e-mix fuels ) and proper outboard oil ( not normal engine oil)
outboard oil has a property that allows the oil residue to stick to the metal bits and helps prevent rust
e-mix fuels absorb moisture and and rusts out steel tanks , destroys rubber components and corrodes aluminium components
the model you have is not listed on any 7.5 hp engine from 1950 to 1958
model number starts at 4434 to 7512 to 7525 in 1958
for a better answer , talk with an evinrude service center who should have a chart listing your motor
units with oil injection are 50: 1 ratio and others are 6 gallons to 1 pint of oil which is around 45:1
I would seek advice from an evinrude service center for the correct fuel to oil ratio for your engine
to mix the fuel , put the oil in first then the flow from the bowser will effectively mix it up to start with
then fit the cap on the tank and shake it up yourself

Gas smell and burning smell from honda 1997


Could be two different problems.
If the check engine light is not on, I would look at the vapor canister for the gas tank. Its usually mounted in the engine compartment.
If you have a small oil leak, the fumes will be sucked into the passenger compartment thru the cowl vents.

How do i replace the water pump in a 2005 150 hp evinrude outboard motor


Take the cowling off. Also drop the foot. There wil be a stainless linkage rod that runs the length of the motor that you will have undo to drop the foot. The water impeller will be inside a stainless casing that you will have to disassemble.
