Hydraulic fluid is most likely low. Refill it, then work the motor up and down about four or five times. Recheck and refill reservoir. Run up and down several times until you get a smooth up and down motion. Recheck /refill. Any air in the line will work it's way out on it's own. Be sure to look for any leakage.

It's a little vague . What's the problem ? Over heating , fuel in oil , water in oil? Over heating will be a water pump problem , water in your oil is a bad head gasket, fuel in oil is passing rings . Honda's are great engines but they must be broken in properly .

Those systems have an injector + mechanical pump... check the fuel line to see if its getting a restriction . And the filters.. If not there check the float bowel located on the right side ( standing behind the boat looking forward. It's located under the air intake...if it isn't allowing enough fuel in you'll stall. Honda is a good engine but the engineers got lazy when they left half of the system efi and half mechanical.

The first things to check are the Thermostat and the Impeller. Also make sure there are no blockages in the water intake.
Have you checked the lower unit oil?

the term dirt dobbers is not known out side your area so you will have to give a detailed lo what they are so that an answer can be given
also when you say inner workings are you referring to the cooling system , the sump or the fuel system

It's normal if you remove the cable harness, the alarm goes off.
Check your engine oil level.
Disconnect the engine temperature sender. If it then stops sounding, replace the sender.
Does the alarm still sounds when the engine is running?
Does the engine has had his maintenance?
Maybe you can post the exact engine type, so we can look for the exact alarms wiring system...

Many manufacturers recommend removing the propeller to tank test small motors the small stream above is what is called a tell tale so you know the pump is working .

The first and easiest thing to do is replace the spark plugs and gap them. After that is it a guessing game for electrics or fuel delivery. My advice for marine engines is always professional service as the consequences of breaking down on the water are always a problem. The engine is only 10 years old so it probably has onboard diagnostics. The engineer connects it to a computer and it tells him what is wrong.
