Awhile ago I posted a strange gringing sound from the engine
of my boat
. Its a 2006 5.7l 300hp mercruiser in and the sound seems to be coming from the flame arrestor area near the throttle body. As i searched other forums
, someone descibed the EXACT noise
"a very loud suction noise
that varies with the rpm's (example: as I stop the boat
and put it in neutral, the hissing is not as loud as when the engine
is revving...you can hear the suction dissipate as the engine slows, but it never stops and is annoying and loud."
Thats my exact problem!! Is anyone familiar with the vacuum lines near the TBI? The motor
runs fine throughout the RPM
range but its loud and annoying. Sometimes she will stall when cold start but after she is warm, she idles fine. Any vac. experts?
