self winterization for etec

step 1-press fast idle button,advance throttle handle to half throttle position. start outboard, outboard should run at normal speed.

step 2-after outboard runs for aprox 15 secs, return throttle to idle position. engine contiues to run at slow idle speed.

step 3-after outboard runs for another 15 secs,advance throttle handle to half throttle position. outboard rpm will increase from 1200 to 2000 depending on model and fog itself.this rpm level is desired , to properly distribute oil for long term self storage.

step 4- allow outboard to run until it shuts itself off automatically 9about 1 minute)......complete

Don't you have to follow the flashing light warning etc on the bigger etec .
My 90 is the same but you turn the fast idle lever to off and on etc after the warning lights have stopped flashing . Its a clever idea though innit

If you are a full year boat user, don't bother. Just put the water plug on, open water, start your engine and flush at least once a month for about 5 minutes in minimum, this will keep all parts well lubricated.

In normal engines (Not Etecs, Efi's etc) run untill the gas is totally consumed and the engine shuts off, remove the on/off switch lanyard and give 2-3 electric or rope starts untill all water is removed and drained.

Store in a vertical position until next time start.
Happy Boating !
