Re: c.2000 Mercury 135-HP Suddenly Stops

Just for the record, after checking the engine, the problem was that one cylinder stopped working when the engine stopped at WOT.

Re: c.2000 Mercury 135-HP Suddenly Stops

On second thought: I might have run the engine [with the battery switch in the] BOTH setting. Would that cause this result?

What should I do now?

Re: Mercury 135-HP V6 Broken Plastic Gear For Oil Mixing Pump

One last question Jim, I have operated the engine around 2.500-3.000 rpm' s for about 10-15 min in order to get ashore from the time the buzzer started, would that have an effect on the engine cylinders?

Re: Mercury 135hp V6 continuous beeper sound

Do I need to terminate and disconnect the oil injection system? And from then on I just add 2% of oil in gas ? Will that affect the life of the engine? And what about the beeper sound? How do I switch it off?
