Mercury Optimax (Four Stroke 6 PS) 2002

The engine has just over a thousand hours of operation. It ran very well until the end. After turning it off in the harbor it started only with hand throttle. If you push the hand throttle down again the engine stops.

The diagnostic device from Mercury indicated lack of fuel and throttle sensor as errors. A new sensor was installed and now the diagnostic device shows no more errors. But still the problem is not solved. The engine starts only with hand throttle and dies off when closing the lever. Engaging the gear is not possible.
