Cosmo Kramer: The ETEC has a self-winterizing mode that is engaged by starting in half throttle and completing the sequence as described. The computer takes care of the fogging and oiling by itself when in winterizing mode. Do a little research before spouting off about what an ETEC does or does not do.
ABOlsen69666: Nice and clear instructions. Good stuff.
ABOlsen69666: No. This is how you fog an E-tec as part of the winterization. Outboards without an automatic fogging feature is basically fogged like a sterndrive, inboards ect. setup.
Bill Brenemen: The E-TEC automatically goes into winterize mode if you know the throttle
Henrik Söderström: You wrote that two years ago, have you learn to check your facts before you yell at people now? Cheers youtube.
matt jeffrey: do some research before calling people out on stuff... this guy did it right, this is how a E-TEC is winterized....says it right in the manual.
pushin steel: guys this is how you winterize an outboard ..its not an I/O boners!
MrBassin0614: People are so dumb this guy is right I dont even own a E-Tec and I know that evinrudes are like that.
jeff davidson: @usmm01 yeah what that guy said your an idiot he clearly has water running and E-Tech are really high tech not your average motor douche bag
LdHoggar: Great Vid Text book prefect Winterizing of and E-tec outboard
I love how the E-tec Fogs its self and all you have to do is check
the LU for water intrusion and your done.
David Hart: Not sure why so many people need to be so rude with their comments...
Nice video man... thanks!
timbo9390: I have an E-Tec motor......... This is exactly what you should do. The onboard computer recognized the process and will automatically engage the "winterization" process and shut down when it is finished.
fishon12345: now that is simple and convenient. no more fogging etc. My next boat will have an
freespeachrulez: Mine is not a e-tech but is a evinrude. I plan on draining all the fluid in the lower unit and putting some fresh oil in it, that way I know there is no water of any kind in it.. then running the engine out of gas on a heavy mix of gas and oil.. then right before it dies putting some oil right down the carb after it runs out of gas.. then pulling the plugs and shooting some oil in the cylinders, then put plugs back in and try turning it over a little with the ignition off.. WIll this work?
borgey: @hitdapipe Get a real motor then you can comment little man. Until then let the big boys play and step ya game up.
seamus021001: @weatherkidd Well, when the engine is running at half throttle its over-oiling the engines internal parts and it shuts down before the excess oil is burned off. When you start it up in the spring you can tell because it throws lots of smoke for about 15 seconds, which is the excess oil burning off. Just curious what would consider a cold night? I live in northern Alberta, Canada and here we don't start to shiver until -40. This is how E-TEC's are winterized, done it 3 times without a hitch.
weatherkidd: @seamus021001 um all you showed was you running the engine. winterizing means you spray fogging oil into it. YOU DIDNT DO THAT. so your trying to say you winterize an engine just by running it with half throttle? lol yeah ok do that and see what happens when a night goes below freezing
fishaholic2012: thats not even fair.....it takes me like half an hour to fog my outboard and i have an evinrude... but it's not the etec, its a 115 hp evinrude ficht from 2003...it's the model made by bombardier. i wish it had the winterization feature like the etec does....
ljalaska: etec's are the best outboard motor out there. THE BEST PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!
Katfish727: Thats how u winterize an etec just the way he just did it i dont see why u guys are talking crap first off he is running water and second its not no sorry ass 4 stroke this is state of the art etec i own one so i know!
