New murcury 40 H.P. runs rough.

3 posts in this topic

yes my dad just bought a 16ft. boat and a 2001 mercury 25hp and has problems getting it to slow down enough to troll cranks every time he gets close to trolling speed his kicks back into neutral.. he has adjusted the idle button that it says in the book but he was wondering if therewas a screw to adjust somewhere to get it to idle slower.. so you are not the only one out there..

If it is a V.R.O. suggest to your dealer you feel it maybe runing to rich at low speed, by which I mean to much oil.

I purchased a 2003 merc. 2cyl. single carb last June for my 16ft. lund. Since I bought it it has been running rough at slow speeds. It idles good and runs good at high speeds and also starts good. Has any one else had the same problem or is it just my imagination. I have brought it back in to the dealer 3 times and each time they tell me that they have adjusted the carb the best they can for a 2cyl single carb. I would appreciate any comments
Thanks
S.B.
