Re: warning sound

Is it overheating?

If not, pull the oil pressure and water temperature sensors and test them.

Re: Warning Sound

I had this with a bad oil sensor. I replaced the sensor but later found cleaning the sensor would have been good enough.

Re: Warning Sound

Thanks for all your answers i just got a call from the Mechanic who is on the boat now and he said he found the trouble and it was or is the "oil sensor switch for the alarm"
dam i sure fell out of the loop as far as engines go...i took a one day course but that didn't help much....thankx again for all you suggestions and they were right on....pn
