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!

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
