I have a 370 Sea Ray Aft Cabin with a 1999 Mercruiser 7.4L

Customer Question

I have a 370 Sea Ray Aft Cabin with a 1999 Mercruiser 7.4L MPI Mag 380 HP Gas Engine (serial #0L086599) and it will not start. Engine turns over but no start/fire. Local mechanic is telling me I need a value job on two cylinders and I need to replace exhaust manifolds for around $5000 total. I purchased boat last June and new manifolds were supposedly replaced before I purchased. My fuel gage shows 1/8 tank. Starboard engine starts immediately and port engine has not started for last 30 days. help! ZEKE AT(###) ###-####

Hi Zeke, my name is Jason.

I'm assuming the mechanic compression tested the engine if he is saying it needs a valve job, is that correct?

Also, did you want to do this over the phone or online? We can do it over the phone if you like, but it is an extra service at an extra charge.
