Help please. I just purchased a 2007 215 SSI and having 2 issues - engine (Mercruiser 5.0L carb aplpha 1) consistently stalls under 800RPM. And always stalls when I am trying to go through neutral to change gears. This makes docking a real difficult and anxious experience. I also notice that the engine will go from 800RPM to 1800RPM with a slight touch of the shift lever - not smooth at all. And sometimes when I am idling at 1200 RPM, it jumps up 1400 RPM, then back down, then back up - kinda like revving without me touching anything. I thought maybe it was old gas as it had about 10G from la
Hi, I have a 2007 4.3L mercruiser TKS. When the boat is cold (hissing sound) I can get the boat on plane quickly, lots of RPM available to do this. However after the engine warms up (~170F) I can not get the RPM high enough to get the boat on plane. If/when it does slowly get up to plane the RPMs rise and then I back off the throttle. I run high octane gas (no ethanol). I replaced the fuel/water separator filter at the start of the season. The oil was changed before I put it away in October. Any thoughts?
