    E-TEC 2006 225HP Diagnostic Report

    Model: E225DPXSD
    Serial: 05117970
    E-TEC 2006 225HP

    A few weeks ago I was taking the boat out for the season. While driving to the ramp the engine started to lose power, bogged way down; right before shutting down the " NO OIL" light went on and it hasnt started since. I got to spend the next hour waiting for sea tow in the cold. I had added another gallon of oil right before shoving off.

    I ran a compression test and found:

    Port Starboard
    0 82
    0 83
    90 92

    I had some time to open up my valve covers this weekend and the following pictures are what i found.... Looks like the piston melted and the connecting rod sheared off. Surprisingly the rings were twisted but intact. I have some pictures below, any idea what happened? Can anyone see anything in these pictures that screams the block is shot? Or any signs of what happened that i am missing?




    Thanks for any help!

    On more than one occasion folks on here have asked posters to explain what they mean when they say------" my motor won't crank "-----Apparently in some local areas that means that it won't start.--------In my area---- " taking the boat out for the season " ----Means it has been under a tarp for 6 months and this will be the first use !----But you are right I know nothing.---- And should just read internet like a comic book and enjoy in these tough times.

    You win the award for the least helpful person on this page pal, "kick rocks" Ask your kids to unteach you the internet.

    Typical piston pin migration problem that haunts big looper motors. That is officially now a parts motor as not worth having rewelded and sleeved.

    Thanks for the helpful correction .... Im not following what you mean by long period of inactivity? I fish the boat on a very regular basis.
