Can anyone help me translate one word to english?

Postby letty » 2018-04-12, 20:02

Hi, I am looking for word "evikka" and "vikaa". I found it in many sentences, but I was never able to translate this specific word. No translator helped me. I think is form of some verb or so... Can anyone please make it clear to me? :lol:

Examples of sentences in which I found that word:
- Evikka ei kulje
- Mistä siis lähden etsimään vikaa kun -90 20 evikka ei ota kulkeakseen niin kuin sen pitäisi?
- Oma 165kg vene ja -87 20hp evikka kulki 41km/h. Nykyään hieman enemmän
- Tuossa Yammussa on ilmeisesti jotain vikaa jos eroa ei tullut tuon enempää?


I would be so grateful :D

Apparently, evikka is a colloquial nickname for an outboard boat motor manufactured by Evinrude Outboard Motors (Evinrude > evikka).

vikaa is the partitive singular form of vika 'fault, flaw, defect, problem'.
