Tilt Trim problem

11 posts in this topic

I have a Yam. F150 and recently when I push the button on either the throttle or the button on the engine it won't go down, I just hear a click. It happens intermittently. Bring the engine up always works, so would this just be a problem with the switch? Also, I did notice the tone of the pump seems to resonate a little or trail off when I bring it up and release the button. Would that likely be a pump issue? Hoping to get a little info. before bringing it in next week.

Thanks

Likely the tilt and trim seleniod(sp). Pretty common symptom.

Sounds like it could be 2 things. The clicking and no movement is more than likely the relay and the noise trailing off could be low fluid.

In the full tilt up position, remove the large slotted fill plug and see if the oil is level with the bottom of the hole.

Yup thats what I thought. What do ya fill it with? Hydrolic fluid? What type do ya recomend?

Does the fill plug have a plastic screw-on cap over it? I loosened this cap a while back and did notice some fluid, but didn't remove completely. Is the slotted screw behind the cap? I'm guessing that's what item #23 is above

Actually thats the plug itself, theres no slotted screw on that one. I would top it off with Yamahas trim and tilt fluid. The reason is because it is suggested that you do not mix different types of fluid. Since it is a Yammy and more than likely, never been changed, you can be relativly sure thats whats in there.

Ya mine just has that cap nothing under it. Do ya just fill it until it starts to come out a bit? I would guess so seeing as theres no measure stick or anything.
