Hi all, I'm new to the board. I am currently having some problems with my 1996 40hp evinrude 2 stroke. First off: it is shaking alot on idle, Secondly: when I don't feed it a little throttle while it is idling it will shut off. Just recently I launched the boat started the motor and as I was setting up my gear (allowing the motor to warm up a bit) , I suddenly heard the motor make kind of a flooding noise, and within seconds it shut off and didn't want to start again. The alternator turned over and all, but no go. I took it in, and the mechanic said it may be the vro pump (since it is fuel injected). Does this sound like the problem. That pump is $350+ and I don't really want to replace it if I don't have to. Thanks in advance guys. Generally how reliable are these motors?
