  • F250 Bad Idle

    2005 F250, 980 hrs

    Engine ran great Sunday, Monday, then 10 miles home Today. No issues until I get to the slip and pull it to idle and neutral getting ready to dock.

    It then starts idling very rough, sputtering, then revving to 1500-1800' then back down to rough idle, does this a few times and almost cuts off. When I give it throttle there are no issues, I tied it up and washed down done for the day.

    I am concerned about going 50 miles to fish now, any suggestions?

    It's running on a brand new racor water sep, and engine fuel filter that were changed in April. No visible water in bowl. This is the first time it's done this.

      You need to plug the engine into a Yamaha YDS (Yamaha shop should have one) and see what the engine is doing, popped codes, etc...

        the old F225 and the F250 really don't share a lot of parts.
        the induction system is vastly different.
        the throttle plate on the F250 is the ISC.
        it is controlled by the ECU.
        you need to find a shop that employs a yamaha master tech.
        use the Yamaha dealer locator function.
