Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone else’s thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when it’s posted at the end of someone else’s thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Idle Air Control Valve Location 4.3 Merc

    Ive been looking around for a while and I am pretty certain the problem with my boat lies within the IAC valve. It either needs to be cleaned or replaced. The problem is, I have no idea where it is located. I have a 2003 Crownline 180BR with a 4.3l mercury engine. A little help here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Sounds a lot like your troubleshooting procedure is to read what happens to others and start throwing parts at it.
    The IAC is on the throttle body if that helps.
    What you might want Click Here and download the proper service manuals for your engine and drive, and check it out properly.

        Of course you don't have one, you have a carbed engine, not an EFI.

        Why don't you post what your problem is, because reading the archives isn't doing you any good.

            Alright here goes. Sorry for that. I just pulled my boat out of storage after the winterization and i hook the ear muffs up and start it up. It will stay running at higher rpms but will fizzle off when shifted to neutral. It will crank right back up with ease but again when let off on the throttle it will fizzle down and shut off.
