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?

What year is a johnson 4 hp outboard serial number b 7643180 model number bj4brccs


To get the year of Johnson and Evinrude outboards use the word "INTRODUCES". Each letter corresponds to "1234567890" respectfully. It's best to check with a model year reference book, but this motor's model number contains "CC" which would indicate it's a '88.
