Customer Question

6/28/15 I have a 2005 Mercury 25hp 4 stroke outboard. Idle speed in gear 775. The problem is it will start up cold with a prime or two and idle for about a minute then die out. I will restart if the gear is in neutral and run at a high idle for as long as it is in high idle. When you bring the idle down to normal it will die out. It will not run smoothly in gear, even at higher rpms. Gas is fresh, spark plugs recently replaced. Any suggestions ????
