Mariner 2.5hp stalling problem
Hi there, just wondering who can help
I recently bought a used (5 hours running time apparently) Mariner 2.5 hp 4 stroke 2009 year of manufacture. It is in brand new looking condition
Purchased on ebay and delivered by courier from Scotland, It was in its original packaging, but when it arrived there is no telling if it had been upside down etc and a bit of oil had leaked etc.
Anyway, the problem is that after approx 15 minutes running time, the engine just cuts out and then will not start for upto 10minutes. Sometimes it seems to start quicker if you take the cover off and let the air get to it?? Also, it seems to stall most when engine is barely ticking over.
From cold it starts lovely with half a pull. The only other info I can give is that on full revs it seems a bit missing, ie if it had 4 cyls would say it sounds like its running on 3 - if that makes sense.
Help !! please
