Mercury Outboard Maintenance Kits

Along with some of the finest boat engines in the industry, Mercury Marine produces maintenance kits that are the perfect way to keep your motor running safely and smoothly.

For nearly a century, Mercury Marine has been a leading producer for outboard motors and boat components. Unlike other manufacturers who adapt pre-existing automobile designs for marine use, Mercury designs its products from the ground up to be used out on the water.

How do you maintain a Mercury outboard motor?

The best way to maintain a Mercury outboard motor is by using a Mercury outboard maintenance kit. These kits contain all the components that need to be replaced at regular intervals of use. For example, a 100-hour maintenance kit will include parts such as oil filters, fuel filters, drain seals, thermostats, and more. By regularly replacing these parts with new replacements from a Mercury service kit, you can keep your boat’s outboard motor running smoothly.

How often do you change oil on a Mercury outboard motor?

Changing the oil is one of the tasks you should perform after 100 hours of service, or once a year, depending on which comes first. Fortunately, changing the oil on a Mercury outboard motor is extremely simple if you have the correct maintenance kit. By lowering the drive into the down position and removing the propeller, you should have access to the drain plug. Then, you can use a screwdriver to remove the lower plug and side vent plug, allowing lube to drain out and into a waiting pan underneath. Once all the oil has been drained, you can begin pumping in fresh oil to refill it before reattaching the screws and propeller.

How often should you service a Mercury outboard motor?

The recommended interval for service on a Mercury outboard motor is every 100 hours, or once per year, whichever comes first. A Mercury outboard tune up kit will include all the necessary components that need to be replaced or serviced at this interval. Additionally, after every 300 hours of use, you will want to get a special Mercury outboard service kit that includes additional equipment such as a water pump impeller kit, as those parts will have reached the point of needing to be replaced as well.
