Of course Yamaha would like you to use there oil, but if Mobil One meets the Yamaha specs....then you can use it......... worry free.

Personally or professionally? Personally I do mine every 400 hours. Professionally...........customers get it every 50 hours. [img]../images/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img][img]../images/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]You know how us boat dealers are!!!

just kiddin.[img]../images/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

Seriously........ I think 100 hours is alittle to long, but around that time is the limit for me. If you are set up to change it, and its easy to do for you, I would do it more often. Our typical local customers use usually is not close to 100 hours so they all get changed at the end of the boating season.

Andy, when you say, "NEVER use the flushing connector to run the engine" are you talking about the garden hose adapter on the outside of the engine?(found on the second image of this your original post) I thought you were suppose to use that for out-of-water flushing/running. I have a 2004 F225 4stroke.


This is unrelated to an oil change, but I had to ask your opinion.

Thanks.

Hi Ben,

The flushing connector would be that device built into the engine for connecting a garden hose to in order to flush the engine with the engine off.

The other device would be a set of additional"ear muffs" that are slid onto the lower unit over the water intakes. This is how you would run the engine when connected to a garden hose.

Hope that made sense. Its common for the two to be confused as each other.

Andy

Only thing I would add to this is to "pre-wet" your filter before spinning it on. A really good Mechanic once told me this helps alot on that initial start-up. Makes sense because with a dry filter, your engine will not achieve proper oil pressure until that filter is fully soaked with oil. Yes, I know it only takes a few seconds but a few seconds at 600 or 1,000 rpm's is an eternity for your 4 or 6 cylinder engine running without proper oil pressure. What I do is this - before spinning the new filter on - simply fill the new filter up with fresh oil. Wait 30 seconds and fill her up again. You will see the oil level in the upside down filter drop as it gets absorbed into the paper filter material. Just like wetting a dry sponge. Now you have a "wet" filter. Don't need to fill it up so much that it spills - just enough to get her wet - like a half quart. Do this on your car or truck and when you start the engine after an oil change, I promise, you won't see that oil pressure light come on. My two cents...
