Engine trouble merc 150 verardo

Hi all,

Went out yesterday and engine went into 'get me home' after giving it full Throttle, this is only our second trip out and the engine was fully serviced about 3 months ago, any tips for what it may be, my thoughts are gone off fuel as it has been in the tank for a while, can anyone give me some tips where to start, a fault code did come up however when I got back in the check it it had gone and wasn't on the history either

You need the fault code to find the issue ! Try running it again to see if the fault code comes back on

If it was serviced professionaly....first port of call take it back!....if not take it to a Pro for proper Diagnostic.
It's probably nothing too serious,ALOT of the modern type Outboards go into "Limp" if you look at them the wrong way....my old Merc 4stk did anyway!

Hi Ollie,

The fuel filter looks fine from the picture.

If the engine has gone into "guardian" mode you really need to get it looked at by a mechanic with the correct diagnostic set-up. Unfortunately, I think there's not a lot you can do to get it to work properly.

If it helps, call me and I'll put you in contacft with our mechanic who may be able to tell you what the likely fault is over the phone.

Regards

Steve

You are just going to have to run it and if the fault code comes up take a picture of it with your phone, then you will have a chance of finding the problem

Top the tank off with fresh Fuel.

Check the fuel hose to make sure there are no kinks, if you have a primer bulb make sure it is in good condition, if the engine throws the code again then make sure the primer bulb is still hard, if its really soft or sucked flat then you have a fuel issue / blocked pipe.

It the 4 cal is anything like the 6 cya there is a second separate filter under the cowling. Should have a red top. The system is pressurised so you will need to let the pressure out, (look for the thing like a tyre valve). Remove the top, lift up and tip out. Water in that filter is common if the fuel has been there a longtime. Verados also do not like duff batteries so you could check that out.
