Idling issue on 02 Yamaha 115

5 posts in this topic

At low rpm's it acts like it's not getting enough gas, particularly when it's in neutral & idling. It will die but start right back up, not as bad when in gear but still touchy at 800-1000 rpm's. It runs fine the rest of the time. Anyone else experience this? Any ideas boatfixer or marine man?

I presume this is a 4 stroke?  Does it behave this way when the engine is cold and warm?  It sounds like it's only doing this when it's idling, but doesn't typically die when it's in gear?

Just asking some clarifying questions :eek:

Yes it's 4 stroke. It's worse when it's cold but does it when warm too. Only when idling & usually won't die when in gear. Thanks MM

I forgot to mention that the boat was winterized & stored earlier this week. So it might be Spring before we get back at it. We are heading back south tomorrow so I'll be away from the computer for a few days as well..

With the weather we're having we've been thinking about pulling the boat out of the shed, so I thought I would bring this thread back up. Checked the owners manual / troubleshooting section & it mentions a couple of problems with the ignition system as well as some others. Bad coil, coil wires? Could the start switch have something to do with this? I know that it wasn't working properly at times last season. Anyone else experience this? Stopped by the mechanics shop yesterday but they are still doing seasonal hours & weren't open.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
