Motor issue withh 1999 Yamaha F100

3 posts in this topic

Last weekend when I went fishing the motor would bog between 2000-3200 rpm. It starts fine, idles fine, and runs fine up to 2000 rpm and then from 3200 rpm to WOT at 6000 rpm. It also does it when coming back down through that rpm range. I changed spark plugs and gas filter this week but it did the same thing this morning. Any ideas?

I'd try cleanig and synchronizing your carbs. Sounds like one or 2 low speed jets may be plugged and not letting it transition into high rpm's smoothly.

It could be one of a lot of things.

The greatest load put on the outboard is just after you punch it. A bad plug, wire or weak coil will show up at that time. First thing I'd do is replace the plugs.

Next it sounds like its happening when the bow is up, once on plain she runs fine. The fuel level in the carbs aren't optimal when the outboard is tilted. Normally the outboard shouldn't flood or run lean for that small amount of time. Its an indication that the fuel system needs attention. If thats the case then most likely the fuel level in a carb.

Next time out and she acts up and thats after you replaced the plugs, put it on plain at a slower rate and see what happens.

Also just for the nuts of it have a compression test done.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
