Can anyone give me some help?
I just bought a boat ( my first) that has a 2004 mercury optimax motor on it. the thing is the boat was submerged for a couple of hours months before I bought it. OK, this is were I need some help, the motor runs but after couple of minutes we get a continuous beep and a triple beep. From some research I have done I have found out the long beep is the over heat alarm and the triple beep is the oil alarm. Now the oil reservoir on the boat is full and the small reservoir on the motor is also full. What I want to find out is the worse case senerio, am I looking at thousands of dollars to repair this motor or even more money to replace the motor? And is there a easy way to tell if the oil injection system is working correctly?
