I have a 2012 70HP Yamaha that shut down like it was out of gas, I would try to crank it and it would start then die.

this happened after a few hours of fishing, cranked up and moving a little above idle, say 5-8 mph, it just died, crank up then die, crank up then die. I had 3/4 of a tank(14 Gal) of gas. After about an hour, it cranked like nothing was wrong.

This happened back in March. took it to dealer, "could not duplicate" at that time I changed the water separated filter, checked fuel line connections between tank and engine. It happened again yesterday.


Anybody have any dealing with this type of problem?

Me too,people seem to have alot of gas issues lately. In my boat I have to squeeze the primer bulb once or twice and start it In choke mode when that happens. When my bulb firms up I'm golden

Might be overheating with the water temps at or near 90 deg now. might be the water pump is getting weak and doesn't pump enough at low rpm. My EFI 150 will sometimes get hot at extended idle especially is shallow warmer water even with a fairly new water pump. Of course there is always the bad gas thing with the separation of the corn likker.

These motors will start vapor locking before the high heat alarm sounds (ethanol). I agree with Muzzlebrake. Put a waterpump in it and replace the thermostat.

Update:

It happened again, yesterday at LOP. running about 1/2 throtle, it just dies. Primer bulb is soft, pump bulb, restart, runs a little, stops, repeat. after a few minutes, it takes off.

I have replaced fuel filters, new hoses and primer bulb, water pump, inspected fuel pick-up in fuel tank. nothing.

any one have any experience on fuel pumps on the engine?

Have you changed the manual fuel pump diaphragms? You can get a complete pump for 38.00. Make sure the fuel filter element is in correctly. Found one upside down once.

Does your 2012 motor have the emergency fuel bypass (red)valve on the front of the engine when you remove the cowling? That valve used to cause that issue until you opened the valve for a short while and ran some fuel through it. Then you would return to normal position and all was good for years normally.

The engine is a F70LA 0411

I have changed the fuel line with primer bulb. only fuel pump is on engine.
i disassemblied the fuel pump, diaphrams look OK.

fuel filter is correct.

my next thought was the fuel pump assy (6CJ-2441-0-00). where is the best place to order parts from?

no "emergency fuel bypass". Fuel lines goes straight to fuel pump located on back of engine.

f70, still think like you gary, he needs to check the manual fuel pump, that high pressure injector pump will also have a screen filter that needs to be checked, but for some reason, the problem being so sporadic, it almost makes me think electrical
