What do y'all think? Ignition coil going out?

I would say it could be a bad ground, kill switch or your power pack is on it's way out. OMC coils are pretty bulletproof on the 9.9-15's.

Does it run ok under load or does it fart and miss throughout the rpm range.

PS. I am a factory cert. merc and evinrude tech.

Today was the first time it happened. At full throttle it didnt budge, just when it was at idle speed or less than half power. Power pack was replaced last season and I thought about that too. When that went out last season it didnt act like this though. It just had no power to get the RPM's up.

Pull the cowl and follow the kill switch wire from the handle to where it connects and disconect one of the terminals and see how it runs. You will have to choke the engine to kill it with the wire disconnected.

Well the engine is at the shop already or I would. I didn't want to play trial and error at the end of the season. I was just seeing what y'all may think. I never thought about the kill switch.

Shop called and said ground wire on the battery pack was coming loose. Easy fix!
