Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? The engines are computer controlled and there is absolutely nothing you can do on your own without Evinrudes diagnostic program. Because of that you would be going to the dealer either way. I have 2 questions back to you.1. When was the last time it was at the dealer for a full service?2. I have an idea of what is probably wrong with it. But, like I said it would have to go into the dealer either way. Did you want to continue knowing you would get a best (educated) guess. Or did you want to call it quits?
