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.

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.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
