View Full Version : Yamaha 225 4stroke Stalling

"After 3 hours of running fast, then sitting off for 2, then idling, my engine stalled at idle going down the canal. It had just had its 100 hour service. We replaced the fuel filter, which seemed to solve the problem. The following weekend, similar usage (fast, then off, then idle) caused stalling again. Waited 30mins, pumped ball, then worked. Service guy has suggested "vapor lock" but question this. Only 120 hours on single-owner 2005 engine. Any help?"

"yes, there is a service bulletin out about vapor lock on certain serial numbers"

I have a 2002 Wellcraft 290 coastal Twin Yamahas 225's. I'm running into the same problem on my port engine. Low rpm's she stalls. Any luck resolving this?
