I have a 2008 evinrude etec 200hp. My mechanic past 12 years

Customer Question

I have a 2008 evinrude etec 200hp. My mechanic for yhe past 12 years can not fix my issue.
It shuts down while giving gas. Sometimes when trying to get up on plane. Yesterday it did it just idling around. Its as though it was turned off. Most of the time it will start back up. It usually does this after it has been running for a little while. Had to leave a tournament yesterday. THAT IS FRUSTRATING needless to say it cost me my entry fee. Please help.

Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

Check the cooling to the EMM when the engine is running. Disconnect the inlet hose and make sure that you are getting water there. The n connect the inlet and disconnect the outlet. Make sure that the water flow is good through it. When the EMM gets hot, it does not function correctly.
