"When its cold it will start and run at low idle, when it warms up it will cut off. Then it will crank for a few seconds then die."

"Check your fuel system, filters, raycor check valves etc. Also check fuel for water or algie. Sounds like a fuel problem also check injector pump & injectors"

My boat will sometimes start but will not maintain itself/stay on when i bring the IDLE back down to off and transition into DRIVE or REVERSE. We looked at the motor and carburetor and we think the choke is not working properly. I will send video and pictures as needed.

Mercury 115 engine, 2 stroke, 1986-1989 Quick fire fish and ski boat on lake petersburg, illinois.

Thanks in advance!
