Customer Question
I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 Glastron GX205 with a volvo penta 5.0 GL stern drive. Lately I've notice a whirring airy sound coming from the motor. The boat isn't performing any differently, not loosing power or speed. Is it supposed to sound like that? The motor has about 135 hours on it

It's Kevin. It's the engine. You can hear while driving and while idling. It almost sounds like power steering but it's not.
Marine Mechanic: Jason, Marine Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Hi Kevin. Can you take any kind of video with sound and upload it to youtube so I can hear it for myself?

Without being able to hear what you are hearing I don't really know how to continue.
