2006 50HP ETEC idles a little rough

2 posts in this topic

Hey Guys,

I just boought a 2006 16 1/2 ft Alumacraft with 2006 50hp etec with under 100 hours on it. I have had it out twice now and it starts great and runs awesome. However, after running at high speeds, when I slow it to a troll, 2mph, it runs pretty rough and it vibrates the whole boat. It's not the end of the world but most motors run smoother at trolling speed and why should,t this one?. At 3 mph, it purrrs like a kitten. What do you guys think, I was told today that all the 50hp's run a little rough at trolling speed but he wasn't an evinrude tec. Is there anything that I can do?
