Re: 1998 Johnson 4 HP outboard

Your probably running on one cylinder. While running, pull one plug wire. If the motor changes RPM's , then that cylinder is OK. Put wire back on the plug. Remove other plug wire, watch for drop in RPM's.
The wire, when removed, that does not produce a drop in RPM's points to a dead cylinder. The dead cylinder can be the result of a fouled plug, bad plug wire, faulty power pack, bad compression etc.
