Customer Question

1995 Mercury 90 horsepower 3 carburetors runs good but will not idle is there an idle screw or do I have to take the carburetor so I can clean them all the way through
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.
Customer: I clean the fuel tank in the whole fuel system and replaced all the lines so we have clean fuel but it will not idle from all the fuel problems from before
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?
Customer: I don't think so the motor is strong and runs out good it just will not idle

Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? I read what you wrote. Mercury outboards are cataloged by serial number, can I start by getting that number so I can see exactly which version of the 90 you have.
