Re manufactured Mercury outboard engines are what we have expertise working on. We deal with all different makes and models of these engines. Everything we have learned over the last 35 years has helped us become better adept to fixing the issues that might arise.

There are some issues that arise more commonly in these engines than others, here are some of those problems that we have seen throughout the years. The engines tend to spit oil more so than other outboard motors. The pistons might be forced out of place and the powerhead can be an issue.

There may be issue that arise with any outboard motor regardless of the brand, make or model, our goal is to give you the information that will help you keep calm when issues arise. You are not the first person to experience this issue, you may not be the last. However, believe us when we say that that we have seen it before and we can fix it.

Nice Comments from our customers

"Thank you, Jerry at Outboard Clinic for the magnificent job you did boring and honing my 150 Mercury xr6 power head. It seems to run smoother and quieter than ever before. I have seen some posts that seem to think you are the one that posts some of your reviews. Fellow boat owners and Dealers, I assure you I am not Jerry and if you need someone to repair your power head, Jerry is your go to guy for excellent service. I found Jerry to be forthright, honest and a man of his word. It was a pleasurable experience from beginning phone call until I received my machined power head. Jerry is frank and to the point. He is not a man filled with a lot of BS. Take it from me a very satisfied customer, you cannot find nor beat a better machine shop than OutboardClinic in Palm City, Florida."

Outboard engines might stall or malfunction, this is stressful, this is not what you want to happen when you have been looking forward to taking your boat out on the water. Here are some common issues that might arise and what to check for.

• Engine does not start: No fuel, Fuel is old, Kill switch is engaged, Kill switch clip is not inserted, Engine is in gear, dead battery (electric motors only), Damaged spark plugs, Damage ignition system.
• Overheating: If there is not enough water flowing through the engine to keep it cool it will overheat. To fix this turn the engine off and check the water flow.
• Excessive Vibration: Damages or loose propeller.
