2016 226 SSi Volvo Penta 300hp Engine Squek

Recommended Posts

Put our boat on the water Saturday for the first time this summer.  Just got it back from the dealer where it was serviced and detailed.  Bad squeak coming from engine, believe it is associated with the belt system.  Louder when idling but still there when in motion.

Take the belt off, and start the cold engine for no more than 5 seconds, and that will ensure you are on the right track. Could be an idler bearing, but you have 2 water pump bearing sets, alternator bearings, power steering pump, and as many as two idler pulleys in the mix too. To see if its a simple belt slip, spray a squirt of Armor-All on both sides of the boat and see if the noise goes away momentarily. The spray will wear away in seconds and if the squeak returns, and belt alignment looks good, dealer may have gotten some spray cleaner on the belt during bilge cleaning.  W
