Recently when trimming my motor(88 90hp Johnson) up at the landing or anytime really it is very slow. It does go up and down so it is not the switch. Also, the contacts at the battery are good. I haven't done any thing to it sowhat is it? Any ideas would be appreciated!

or time to put a fresh charge on your battery

I just put a brand new p/t motor on my 85 whaler (91 Johnson) and it is still relatively slow. I just figured that was the way it was suppose to be...

Not the battery. Where would you put in fluid? I understand that it is hydraulic but where would it go? Also, it has never been quick but it has definitely gotten slower in the past 3 weeks.

Does the trim/tilt pump sound like it is working harder?
After checking fluid level(raise the motor and look at the trim/tilt pump there should be some kind of fill plug)you might want to disconnect the trim/tilt pump mechanically and see if the engine can be lifted and lowered by hand freely. If you said it was only going up slowly then maybe fluid level but... this may not be the trim/tilt pump .
