Suzuki outboards, produced by the Suzuki Motor Corporation, are engines that are used as propulsion systems for boats. Suzuki outboard motors can suffer from problems that can often be overcome by following some basic troubleshooting procedures.

Engine Hesitation

If the motor hesitates at higher speeds, problems with the fuel pump may be to blame. Inspect the rubber diaphragm of the fuel pump, which expands and contracts to receive in and release out fuel. If the rubber diaphragm appears worn or torn, replace it. Also inspect the pump hose for tears, which can result in fuel loss, and replace the hose if damage is apparent.

Engine Stalling

A stalling outboard motor can be caused by a plugged-up fuel filter. If the fuel filter is clogged it may not prevent contaminated particles from running through the engine, resulting in poorer engine performance and stalling. Inspect the fuel filter for any build-up of sediment and replace it as needed.

Engine Flooding

Suzuki outboard motor flooding often results from carburettor problems. Spray the carburettor with carb cleaner to remove any sediment build-up, and then spray it with compressed air to dry it. Also inspect the needle valve and needle valve seat for any damage or abrasions and replace them as necessary.
