Missing when cold

Postby Gonefishin » Tue Jan 14, 2014 9:05 am

Hi allI
I have a tohatsu 30hp that misses when cold, the motor takes about 5 minutes to warm up, when the motor is hot it runs like a new one. I have changed the thermostat and plugs. Anyone have any ideas.
I did have the motor serviced but the motor needs to be cold to find the problem.
good fishin all.

Sounds like your idle mixture is a bit on the lean side, try adjusting till it runs smooth when cold, only quarter turn at a time. ??
