I have a year 2000 25 hp merc and there is a fast idle mechanism built into the primer knob. Are you sure you have that turned down to base idle . the knob is not labeled that it has that you need to read it in the owners manual . to start motor turn the primer knob clockwise all the way this sets the fast idle then pull out and and push in on knob then pull out again , start motor then push knob in , as engine warms up turn primer knob clockwise and the idle will come down , this is a great feature for late in the season . might want to check that to see if it's working o.k.
hope that helps
