Evinrude overheating

5 posts in this topic

1999 115 Evinrude 2 stroke.... when I run her at higher speeds for an extended period of time the overheat alarm comes on and I have shut her down for about 15 minutes to cool down. It seems it only happens when running on real smooth water. Any expert advise? Do you think that it could be the impeller? Or maybe the temperature sending unit? It seems to always piss out a good stream of water. Any advice would be appreciated.

Definitely the impeller, a good tell tale stream doesn't mean much.

Replace it every 2 or 3 years and you will not have any problem, it's a $ 25.00 part, don't risk it.

I wouldn't use your motor until repaired.

Now that Valv solved your problem you can tell us the real name of your motor. We all know Evinrudes don't break down or cause their owners problems. Good Luck!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
