New Quicksilver Oil Change Kits for Yamaha Outboards Include All the Essential Components in One Convenient Package
Changing the oil in your Yamaha four-stroke outboard is a simple DIY project that can save you money and an unnecessary trip to the dealership. The first step is to stock up on the proper amount of oil and the appropriate oil filter and drain-plug gasket for your specific engine. Rather than shopping around for each item individually, you can now purchase everything you need in one convenient package with the new Quicksilver® Oil Change Kits for Yamaha outboards.
Five kits in the lineup cover most Yamaha 30hp to 350hp four-stroke engines. Below are some handy charts that will help you choose the right kit for your engine model. Kits are currently available online through Amazon and Walmart.
The Quicksilver 10W-30 marine engine oil included in each kit is engineered for superior lubrication and peace of mind. It includes an additive package that protects your engine from corrosion and the harmful effects of oil dilution by fuel. It’s also FC-W certified by the National Marine Manufacturers Association, meaning it’s safe to use with any four-stroke outboard and won’t void the factory warranty.
With the kit in hand, all you’ll need to complete the job is a bucket or drain pan to collect the spent oil and a few rags. An oil pump is a handy tool to have as well and can be purchased for as little as $20. If you’re uncertain about any step in the process, check out this helpful video by Quicksilver Pro Team angler Johnathan Stuckey, who breaks down the procedure for changing the oil in the Yamaha 250hp SHO engine that powers his Skeeter FX21 bass boat.
