Default How To: Yamaha F200 Oil Change

This post describes my experience changing the oil and oil filter.

I change the oil and filter in January, then I change just the oil again in
July.

All parts were purchased from our friend Andy at
Shipyard Island Marine Engine
Parts.


I run the engine for 10 to 15 minutes to get her good and warm. This helps
release all of the oil and deposits. I run mine with a set of dual feed
muffs. NEVER use the flushing connector to run the engine!

Be careful with this high dollar cowling!!



There are three latches that hold the cowling down. One on each side and one
in the front.



The dipstick is located on the left side looking back at the engine from the
helm.



This is the Tempo Oil Extractor that Andy used to sell. He now carries the
larger model.



This is the Yamaha adapter for the pump.



Remove the adapter from hose by pressing on the slip ring and install it on
the dipstick tube. I used a wrench to tighten past hand tight, but not much.



Insert the hose back into the fitting.



Start pumping, and like MAGIC, the oil comes a flying. Very easy! Once it
seemed like all the oil was gone, I tilted the engine up and down several
times and then used the smallest hose in the kit and slid it all the way
down the dip stick tube to remove the last 1/2 quart. No need to remove the
drain plug.



There is one bolt that secures the oil filter cover.





I used an oil filter wrench to remove the filter. Tilt the engine all the
way up and slide a 1 gallon zip lock bag over the filter and filter base to
catch any remaining oil and the filter itself.



New filter. Be sure to rub some oil on the rubber seal.





I used my oil filter wrench again to snug up the new filter. I could not get
my hand on it well enough to tighten it. Do not over-tighten!!



Remove the oil fill cap on top of the motor.



Pour in the liquid gold!



Tilt the engine until it is level and crank the engine. Let it idle for a
minute or so, then shut it off and check the oil level.

Carefully reinstall the cowling.





Off to the recycling center!



Hope this post helps someone out.

Is this the same procedure you would use for a 2005 F250 ? Is it really that easy?

Thanks

How come you need an oil extractor from tempo? Isn't there a bolt that you can remove to let the oil out ?

Sure there isdrain plugKen. But..........sucking out the majority of the oil before pulling the drain plug is still my preferred way of draining the oil regardless. Yamaha does not really make it very easy to safely drain the oil. Usually it ends up in spillageand a mess. If you are on a boat lift or in the water, using a oil evacuator is the only way to change your oil mid season.

I have a Yamaha F150 4 stroke. I was planning to drain the oil, but perhaps a pump would work better. Is the hose adapter the same as a standard garden hose fitting? If I want to just push the hose into the oil dipstick hole, will that work too?

Rock,

As I mentioned before, we always suck the majority of the engine oil outon 4-strokes since its is very easy for us to do and there is less chance that we will have a spill.

With your F150........yes you have a garden hose adapterat the dipstick,but I still would rather use a larger ID(inside diameter)tube then a smaller one that would slide down the tube. When the tube gets smaller ID wise, it takes a lot longer to suck the oil out even if it is warm.

Thanks,

Andy

I was told to Tilt the engine all the way up for 10 minutes. (not running) Then tilt it all the was down to negative tilt, all the was down as far as you can go to get any residual oil sitting in the pistons out. then pump it out just like this excellent post states. Is this also correct? OR it really doesn't matter.

You are correct about tilting the engine. This will let all the engine oil sitting behind the pistons and other area's, full drain down to the oil pan for removal.

Also.....do this same procedure before checking the oil level too. [img]../images/emoticons/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Default Re: How To: Yamaha F200 Oil Change

Changed my oil Saturday. Was all ready to suck it out, got my Tempo extractor, and realized I must have tossed all of the hoses and attachments with the box a few weeks ago. Doh!

So since I had the covers off the the leg anyway for cleaning and waxing under them, I pulled the plug. With a rag jammed under the plug and motor mounts, I pulled the plug and held a small funnel under the drain and into a jug, and over my oil change pan, which was on a trash can, over a rubber mat. Didn't get a drop on the driveway.

After a few trims up and down, got all of the oil out and pulled the filter with a zip lock bag.

Sucking it out is easier and quicker, but I'll probably drain it every spring and suck it out if a mid-season change is needed.

Btw, does the oil filter cover serve any purpose? Seems like a waste of plastic.

Good question on the cover.......I wonder if it has something to do with heat reflection(hot oil)?

Or just another part to break.....and buy! [img]../images/emoticons/thumbsup.gif[/img][img]../images/emoticons/thumbsup.gif[/img] Oh ya! [img]../images/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

Andy. Thanks for the info, I changed my oil in my f225 yesterday and it went off without a hitch. Next maybe do one on winterizing and fogging the motors.

Great descriptions and photos Thanks again [img]../images/emoticons/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Just got the oil extraction kit from Andy (SIM). It's the next size up from the one shown above. I moor my boat so this way do not have to worry about damaging my expensive bottom paint to change oil after pulling it onto a trailer. It worked better than i could ever have imagined. I swear it took less than a minute to remove the oil from my F150 Yamaha. Followed the directions above. Thanks for the thread. Lent the oil extraction package to my buddy a few slips down who has a dual inboard motor setup. You need to be a contorsionist to reach the oil pan drain plugs on his boat. The 4 different diameter sized extraction hoses is quite handy. Used the Extended Life Mobile 1 oil with yammie filter. Only the best for my 2004 motor with 500+ hours.
