Johnson 1998 175 hp motor seems to be in safe mode

Johnson 1998 175 hp outboard motor seems to be in safe mode. Was running great and stopped at beach for fifteen minutes. Boat started up just fine and then all of a sudden it shut off. It started right back up, but will not go faster then around 5 to m10 mph. Changed fuel filter, plugs, made sure oil was filled, sprayed a little carb cleaner in the carbs, filled gas, cleaned out the thermostats, and put chems in gas in case gas may be bad or had water. Nothing has helped. The hot warning beeped yesterday when trying to get it to go faster, but then went out if we slowed down to almost no speed. How can you tell if it is safemode due to oil or water cooling. Water is coming out of the telltale ok, so I am leaning towards the oil injection. What can I look for? Fuses? wires? Motor oil is filled.I did overfill the oil last time I filled it. Any ideas or suggestions? Also will it automatically go out of safemode if you correct the problem?

I have a short shaft Johnson 6hp outboard, the Jon boat I mounted it on is too deep, and motor doesn't reach water. Is there a way to lower motor? A bracket to lower motor to reach water?


outboard motor manufacturers supply a long shaft leg for just this problem
Talk with your Johnson dealer and check used outboards on e bay
Lowering the whole motor may affect the boat and floatation aspects besides making it harder to steer and start

Try mounting it properly,cavitation plate 1/2 inch below bottom of boat.An old motor like that many things could cause a lack of power.

Does my 1979 johnson outboard charge the battery thru the powerpack?


Some models charged through a Magneto, but see if you can find the 1979 Year Manual. I have a 1979 engine myself in a 15Hp which is a Manual start(no battery) and I have a Sailhorse Johnson 8HP which has an electric port and is Manual start. I believe the 8HP would charge a battery as on a Sailboat the running lights needed power. The 8HP could power the lights directly.

Johnson offered options for electric start in lower HP units and options in charging systems to contain costs. You might get a better answer from someone by listing the HP of your motor. I was the original owner of the 15HP and remember the 9.9HP and others in the same Sales brochure. The Sales brochure may advertise more about the charging systems.

I have a 1984 glstron boat wit a 70 hp motor with a 13x15 pitch prop. and have to play with the power trm to get boat to plane out. How do I know if I have the right pitch prop.?


You do not tell us the size of your boat. I sounds as if you have the motor set too high in the transom. Does the motor just rev up and not move the boat or does it lug down and not seem to have enough power? More info, better ideas.

40 Hp Johnson outboard motors stalls out after a few minutes running then takes forever to start again


May likely be one of two problems:

1. Fuel flow: Make sure fuel tank vent is open and not blocked while engine running. Check primer bulb is working and no air leaks along hose anywhere. Check function of fuel pump and ensure fuel is getting to the cylinders.

2. Overheating: Check engine isn't overheating and that water pump is operating properly while engine is running.

Outboard motor won't run under load


I have 1969 5hp Johnson. Starts and runs good, but will only push a 14ft row boat slow at low to medium rpm. When at higher rpm the the motor just revs up and the boat slows down to almost nothing just like it has seaweed around prop.Any help would be great.
