Mr. & Mrs. Mitchell Foskey: hey man my 90 force 150 tilt and trim works, but it slowly leaks down when
i tilt it up, could it just be low in fluid? or would i need to replace the
seals? thanks Mitchell
Dave Seeley: Thank you bro! As simple as it seems, I like the security of seeing someone
else (you!) do it first. Well done my friend, well done.
captainedc: ATF will work fine but unfortunately it's not compatable with the seals and
will eventually cause them to fail prematurely. ATF in your power steering
will do exactly the same thing instead of using power steering fluid.
Glyn Thorman: Great story Reel. The Q/A answered most of any more questions and I am now
a certified tilt/trim oil level mechanic! One question I didn't see: If
your your motor 'bleeds down' overnight, is the pump needing work?
(Mercury. New manual release valve and o-rings.)
fuckofflalready: This is EXACTLY the video I needed! Thanks! I notice in the comments below
you say that normal auto transmission fluid would work as well? I ask
because I'm on the island of Borneo and trying to order proper
Johnson/Evinrude stuff takes forever and costs a fortune.
tim thompson: my trim motor has been real sluggish last cpl months...have to tap it with
a hammer to wake it up sometimes..well it finally stopped all together. I
figured out i had to take the release valve with o rings out to release
pressure to manually raise motor!( Is there an easier way?) So now my fluid
is drained, Should motor still work? Do you think motor is done...will
putting more fluid in it help motor kick on?
Tony Xiong: I am having problems with, took the other day out and some how the Tilt was
stuck all the way up, wouldn't go d own. Thought it was low on fluids and
when I decided to add fluids to it, some how it was able to move up and
down. Right when it went down its stuck and I don't know whats wrong with.
Any suggestions? Maybe I might of let to much air in it?
Bigdaddyjigga: What about the middle cylinder? ????
james scoccca: a little tip. before ya start go to an appliance store an get a fitting to
go into the fill hole. place another one into a gallon cap of the hydraulic
fluid. connect a hose between the two. turn the fluid upside down and
continue with steps. no oil lose or mess to clean!! you can even leave it
connected over night for the stuburn air bound pumps
Capt Jim Mitchell: Great job!! I am a River guide on the Smith River in Northern Calif for
salmon and steelhead check out some of my vids
therealpoorboy: Mercury is top 3 in the nation. mercury is the offical engine. nice video,

BassSmacker R: i have to say, following your steps is a lot more difficult since each time
lowing the motor down, the oil would spits out a lot. it makes it harder
for the trim to come back up unless you add more oil into it. I went back
to the manual book and doing it with the fill plug on and each time the
motor is raised up, i would slowly unscrewed the plug and let the air come
out. And then I would add fluid little by little. That works fine for me.
mathew Kane: I have no idea why people would buy a mercury
jon beeler: I figured if anyone could answer this it might be you. Anyway,the T&T unit
on my 50hp OMC sometimes gets stuck in the up position. You can still hear
the units motor run seemingly normally. However,sometimes,when it sounds
like it is going down,it simply isn't. Could this be low or watery fluid?
Perhaps something worse???

NinersFaithful713: hey I tried to do the same steps as you did but the trim stopped halfway.
Now it wouldn't go up nor down. and there isn't enough room to refill into
the fill hole. What to do? help please. Thanks
Antoine Davis: If I don't have hydraulic fluid can I use automatic transmission fluid?
mas121473: i got a question..... on my 1995 mercury the t&t motor runs in both raise
and lower positions but wont raise my engine.....and suggestions? thanks
mustafa panahi: tnx for this video , i just want to know why the trim and tilt is not going
up and down completely ??? works something like to half and then stop when
i change the fluid... it is yamaha 40 hk ,
shammond82: Nice video. I am in the middle of replacement my power trim electric motor
and I noticed the fluid is milky. I am guessing water has gotten into it
over time so I am going to drain all the fluid and replace. Any tips you
can give me?
Carry Smith: question 4 u buddy,,i have a 1997 mariner 90hp 2stroke motor, would u say a
propeller thats 13,25x19 will work well for my motor?..thank you
Generic User: Thanks for taking the time to make this video. I'm curious about CHANGING
the fluid too. Do you know of a DIY how-to video for that? Either way,
Shrimps: Thanks man, I appreciate the feedback. The reason I was able to get sales is because I offer rare shrimps for sale. Not many other online place is willing to take the risk at shipping high priced shrimps. That is my way of earning online.
