Is this a gasoline or diesel
engine? What model engine?
Did this problem start after you changed the filters, fuel and pumps or was it doing this before you changed the filters, fuel and pumps? If it was doing this before you changed all the filters, fuel and pumps, when did it start and were there any maintenance
procedures or unusual circumstances just before it started doing this?
Assuming that you bring the throttle up to the high speed position after trolling and it doesn't go fast, are there any unusual symptoms, vibration, noise
or smoke during this period? How about the engine temperature?
Are there and unusual noises or vibrations when the engine eventually starts to run at the normal speed? Does it speed up gradually or all of a sudden?
If you stop the engine and restart it, will it run at the normal speed or still slow?
