  • 2001 225 Evinrude Ficht Problems

    The motor ran fine two days in a row before problem. I was bringing the boat up to trailer and the motor started knocking so I immedietly turned it off. I turned it back on and the knocking went away. The next day I changed the foot fluid and tried to turn it on to lubricate the foot and it would not crank. None of the self diagnostic lights came on for a warning. I took it to a shop they claimed I had 50 lbs of compression in the #6 cylinder. Could the computer shut something off for the compression to all of a sudden read that Low or should I be worried and look into buying a new engine instead of rebuilding and hoping it doesnt happen again. HELP!!!

    Sounds like you blew a piston or worse. With the yr and model you have, I'd look for a different mtr. No, the computer will not lower compression.
