20 Most Recent Clymer Evinrude/Johnson 5-70 Hp Four-Stroke Outboards 1995-2001 Questions & Answers


first bit of advice
do not use e-mix fuels in outboard engines
WHY
because ethanol separates from the fuel if not used continuously so letting it stand between outings is not good
secondly ethanol is hygroscopic which means that it absorbs moisture from the air that is going in via the tank vent and that results in corroded aluminium parts and rusted fuel tanks and outboards operate in a very moisture laden environment
now for the problem
being a late model engine , it should be a 4 stroke and like any 4 stroke engine , check the timing belt/chain, crank/cam position sensors , ignition module
it is important to check all harness connections as salt water rapidly causes corrosion in electrical connections and components
have the service agent do a scan for fault codes remember this
Suzuki out board 2 stroke motors were used in the early suzuki 4x4 cars and modern 4 stroke engines are simply car engines on end

Lean fuel mixture

take it to a service shop
I suspect that you put the new motor onto old fuel lines and the rubber on the insides of the primer and hoses has not broken down and is blocking the high speed jets or affecting the fuel pump valves
if it is fuel injected , the shop will be able to read the fault codes to find the faulty sensor

I found a mixture of sites for the information
one owner of a 1998 25 hp evinrude says that it is a 2 stroke with a fuel mix ratio of 50:1 as 25:1 is a bit smokey
another site says that the recommended octane fuel rating is 87 although it might run better on 91
best advice is to find an evinrude service dealer and get the right information as the later 25 hp units are etec engine which will be 4 strokes

Depending on age, the controls(relays) are either under the cowl or in a remote box but they are the same. Look for a fuse. Blown, you will have no action. Then check all connections especially to positive battery. but a bad ground will shut it down also.

The power supply is common for all the coils.
Have you switched the coils (wires marked 1 and 2)? If still the same coil non sparking, replace that coil.
If the same output non sparking, check the pulser coil for that cylinder. Invert both pulser coil connections (white red and white black). If the miss is on the same cilinder, replace the cdi. If the miss is on the other cylinder: replace that pulser coil.

I think you have to look at a fuel supply problem. Clogged carbs or bad fuel pump...
Also have a look at your spark plugs...

Hold down the 88/pri and the DW buttons while switching on the radio into programming mode. You'll then need the programming soft and hardware to read the radio., add the 27mhz channels and write it back to the radio. The GX300 can only store additional freq. in the p1-p0 modes
