etec 90 proplem...please help

hi ... i have an evenrude etec 90...and its started to play up...

a few weeks ago (and now again)...after running for an hour or two...i came off the throttle to map a wreck...but when i started to push the throttle forwards..the engine refused to pick up..and just juddered and would not rev....it was like this for about 10 mins before clearing itself..and i headed in...i called the etec engineer and he could not find a fault logged...and said it was airlock in the fuel system..
ok

so i ran her again...it was ok....but yesterday the fault returned big style...after 2 hours running the ob done the same thing..bulked and would not running or rev out...and smoked a little...it sounded like it was running on two cylinders...so i headed in..at only 5 knots as it would not rev ..i dont know wether it ran back in safe mode or on its fault...
now...what problem could it be..and will it have logged a fault if it was not running in safe mode....andy

It may be a plug problem (here's hoping, that would be the cheapest to fix) but it may also be a faulty coil or injector. When it sounded like it was running on five rather that six cylinders it was burning much more fuel than normal - 85l per hour at 35kts rather that 64l per hour at 44kts as usual.

What do I know? Without anymore details, it does sound like it's in SAFE mode. But then it would throw a code. Failing that it could be allsorts. Possibly the neutral switch sticking.

Not quite sure what you mean with "the fuel tank was venting"

I prefer my evenings in the pub
