Outboard Engine Maintainence Tricks You Need To Know

January 14, 2020


Hi, this is David Meeler with Yamaha Marine,
and I’m here to give you just a tip or two about how to maintain your engine and keep
it in tip top shape every day before you get ready to go out for a ride. One thing you want to check when you’re getting
ready to head out is the condition of your batteries. But, what you don’t want to do
is start your engine dry. Make sure to have some water on the engine. Either dip it in
the water with your trailer and then turn it over, or check it at home with a flush
muff before you go. Make sure the connections are clean and tight and that you’re using
nyloc nuts, not the old fashioned wing nuts. The second thing you want to do at all times
is take care of your fuel. Fuel breaks down in a matter of days instead of months like
it used to. One of the things you’ll need is a ten micron filter to filter out impurities
and to capture any water that you’re going to get through ethanol gas. Stabilize your
fuel. Make sure to use a good marine formula at all times. Don’t only do it when you think
you’re going to put the boat up for a while. Get in the habit of using it every time. Fuel
and electricity are two of the most important things you can do to maintain your engine
every day.
