Annoying noise from Merc shifter

Recommended Posts

jbzobes

Last year started getting an intermittent high pitch squeal from shifter...I suspect it has something to do with that little chirp you hear when you turn the key on...took it apart looking for a loose wire/bad connection...everything seemed fine

It has progressed to an almost continual high pitch squeal...driving me crazy!...Anyone have any idea on cause...or better yet, a fix!??...it is a 90Hp set up factory install on sylvan...Thanks...jb...

just an FYI if anyone else runs in to the same situation...apparently it IS an alarm...could be just a faulty oil float...or a worn water pump(Motor still puts out water) or thermostat...jb...

Temp,oil low or water in fuel alarm..If u have a fuel filter . Most motors don't sense water pressure.

Thanks Stud!...oil reservoir is kept topped up...so maybe float?...I would assume there was a filter...fella I was chatting with today didn't mention water/fuel alarm...from what I can can gather from serial#...is 93 vintage...when I mentioned the water was still pissing out...he said there could still be an issue with water pump...flow looks normal to me !?...given the year and not knowing past history...thinking it might be prudent to do a water pump service kit anyway?...didn't notice any abnormal heat from motor...but...I wasn't really paying attention...cause it runs like a champ!? except for the alarm...I'm not a motor head...but might be leaning towards thermostat...trying to get my ducks in a row before I order any parts...APPRECIATE Your reply...jb...
