Yamaha motor

Recommended Posts

Looking for help. I have 2005 4-stroke yamaha 8 horse.

When starting the motor seems tough, it gets going but I have to keep it running by keeping the choke all the way out. If I push the choke in it will idle, but as soon as I give it gas it will bog down and die. It sounds as if it isn't getting gas, but I can't see anywhere that could be a problem.

Also the red light in the front of the motor that is normally on when it is running isn't coming on when it is running.

Any help would be apprieciated.

Thanks

It does sound like a dirty carburator. You may also want to check all the obvious things like hose, primer bulb, connections, fuel filter.

I was looking ... red light is low oil so good thing it isn't on.

Checked all hoses and all look good. Fuel filter looks good and when hose was off would squeeze ball and gas would squirt out. So I feel all that is ok. I took the bottom screw out of the carb to make sure no water in there. Didn't do anything with the carb as I really don't have a good place to do it while on the lake.

That's what I thought the red light was for, but wasn't 100% sure, so yes, good thing it's not on.

What you have done so far with the fuel might help, but more than likely the carb needs to be removed and cleaned.

Not a difficult job, but somewhat difficult if it's still in the lake.

    • Actually ZachD Leech does like this and nice job on the meat. 😎   Leech was just ribbing a few guys waving their big penis grills around and they got all chard about it.   Some of the best Jerk BBQ in the world comes out of a garbage can grill!  So it's not what you got or how big it is. It's what you can do with it.  😉   Keep posting whatcha make. 🙂        
    • Now I just have to pick up the sear box Haha forget leach 😀   Maybe he will approve since I got my SG for 340 bucks
    • Going camping finally for the first time this season this weekend so I rolled a breakfast fatty to take along. I plan to smoke it on my $50 over-priced pellet smoker that Leech doesn't approve of for some reason. I'll try to remember to take some pics.....    
    • If you ever have a hard time controlling temps with that controller you can always switch it out with a Savannah Stoker. https://www.savannahstoker.com/collections/frontpage/products/savannah-stoker-pellet-grill-control-system
    • LOL, you probably have more money into grills and smokers than I do.....
    • Just picked up a camp chef SG the other week pretty stoked about it  
    • I bought a boat before this season the guy I bought it from never transferred it in his name and registration was set to expire.  I had all the registration cards and what not I simply just made my own bill of sale from the "original" owner and scribble his name the best I could from his registration card. The trailer title was easy because the old owner filled out the seller info already and the guy I bought it from never filled out the buyer so I just had to put my info in.   I wasn't about to go track down the original guy when he lived 2 hours away from me. What is the worst that could happen
    • You will probably need that many to make sure you have one that works 😁. The last grill I bought was a top of the line charbroil with the side burner yadda yadda. Nearly $600.  Lasted barely two years with half the burners no longer working right and finally the grates were a rusted mess and it was replaced by a pellet grill. 
    • It's the same form whether the boat is titled or just registered. How long is the boat? 16' or longer or if there was a loan on it when new it would be titled. The form is just the starting point, since Homeland Security took an interest in boat ownership transfers several years ago it is not an easy process.
