Why won’t my Suzuki outboard start?

If your Suzuki outboard doesn’t start, you’ll need to start from the most obvious causes, then move to more complicated possibilities. Here’s a run-down:

  • Make sure that the kill cord is attached.
  • Because your Suzuki outboard won’t start in gear, ensure the engine is in neutral.
  • Inadequate fuel supply is a common issue, either from pinched hoses or a lack of fuel in the gas tank(s).
  • Make sure that there’s no water in the fuel lines. Perform a visual inspection in the water separator bowl for traces of water.
  • Look for fouled spark plugs (more common in small engines). If any fouled plugs are discovered, replace them with new spark plugs.
  • Test your battery to ensure that it has adequate voltage. If it is underperforming or dead, consider replacing the battery and checking for any shorts that may be draining it.

Is winterizing my Suzuki outboard engine important?

Properly winterizing your Suzuki outboard engine is the best way to prevent damage during the offseason from both lack of use and cold winter temperatures — depending on where you live. It also helps you with a smooth start to the beginning of next season.

There are six basic steps to proper winterization of your Suzuki outboard engine:

  1. Thoroughly flush your engine with fresh water
  2. Stabilize the entire fuel system
  3. Fog your engine
  4. Change the spark plugs
  5. Change Suzuki Outboard Oil in the lower unit
  6. Disconnect your lead acid batteries

With your engine properly winterized, there shouldn’t be any harmful debris or materials in the engine components that can cause damage over the off-season months. Plus, with new spark plugs, oil, and fluids, your Suzuki outboard should start up right away when boating season starts in the spring or Summer.

For a more in-depth look at how to winterize your Suzuki outboard engine, take a look at “How To Winterize a 4-Stroke Suzuki Outboard Motor” from the PartsVu Xchange. And of course, you can find all the winterization products you need at PartsVu.com to simplify the process.

Which oils and lubricants should I choose for my Suzuki outboard engine?

The best oils and lubricants to use on your Suzuki outboard engine are genuine Suzuki products. Why? Because they’re specifically formulated to meet the needs of your Suzuki engine!

Marine engines take their fair share of abuse. Between harsh saltwater, serious vibrations, heavy use (up to 6,400 RPMs on some models), and intense UV sunlight, they need to stay well-lubricated if they’re going to function at maximum efficiency.

While you should absolutely use genuine Suzuki lubricants and oils, it’s important to choose the right type of lubricant for your engine model. For example, two-stroke engines require different oils than four-stroke engines.

Check your Suzuki owner’s manual and/or Suzuki outboard parts diagrams to determine the specific Suzuki oils and lubricants to use for your engine. And be sure to consult PartsVu’s Suzuki Outboard Engine Oil Capacities & Oil Filter Chart to match your filter and how much oil you should add for each oil change. 

How do I service my Suzuki outboard lower unit? 

Suzuki lower unit gear lube is drained by removing the lower drain screw first and then the upper plug vent to allow air in. On most models, both plugs are clearly visible on the lower unit, but on models with low water pickups, the forward pickup will need to be removed to access the drain plug. 

Have a drain pan and extra rags handy as the gear lube will begin running down the skeg as soon as you remove the upper vent plug. Be sure to collect the fiber gaskets from both plugs after removal, as these are not reusable and should be discarded.

Use a properly sized screwdriver assisted by a wrench if necessary to loosen these screws which should be pretty tight. An impact driver and hammer may be needed depending on who serviced your engine last. The drain screw has a magnetic tip, so inspect the plug after removal to see if heavy deposits exist. Some fine shavings are normal, but chunks or a large quantity of metal are cause for further inspection. 

What are common Suzuki outboard engine fuel system issues?

One of the most common ways your Suzuki outboard motor will break down is a fuel system failure. Whether you’re experiencing an intermittent bog down, poor performance, or complete engine failure, your fuel system is a common culprit.

  • Ethanol gasoline: Only use premium low-ethanol gasoline for your Suzuki outboard motor. The reason is that ethanol attracts water, causing fuel to dilute through “phase separation.” Additionally, ethanol gasoline can also gunk up fuel lines and fuel system components due to additives used. To help prevent these issues, regularly use a high-quality fuel stabilizer.
  • Fuel lines: Check your fuel lines. If you discover any breaks or leaks, you should stop using the engine and make any necessary replacements. Also, take a look at any fuel hoses with an interior liner.
  • Fuel filters: The Suzuki fuel filter is designed to catch any debris and contaminants that have entered your fuel system. Regularly replace your fuel filters to keep fuel running freely.

Fuel pump: A malfunctioning Suzuki fuel pump can significantly reduce engine performance and, over time, severely damage other components. If your fuel pump is not working correctly, replace it and any hoses that may have been affected.
