check the plugs if they wet its getting too much oil in the mix. if dry and black plugs then it could be not enough oil or fuel in mix.

30 hp evinrude outboard, running full throttle, then surges as if running out of gas. Will conk out if not taken back to idle. Whats causing this?


Sounds like air is getting into the fuel line. If you have a squeeze bulb primer check to make sure that it stays firm after you run it a bit. I had an air leak on a clamp attaching the primer bulb to the fuel line and the same thing happened to me. When the engine starts to cut out squeeze the primer bulb and see if it starts running better, if it does then you probably do have an air leak in the line and it is losing it's prime. Hope this helps!

Starts well,runs wellfor five mins but then cuts


My first guess would be the fuel filter. It is probably almost completely plugged.

Motor runs for 5-10 min. then starts missing and quits.


Check your spark first,if you do not have spark your problem is the coils-if you do have spark the problem probaly lies withone of your valves getting stuck after getting hot and soonas it cools down a little it closes and then you can restart it till it gets hot again.Hope this helps
