Customer Question
Volvo penta kad 32,Very...

Volvo penta kad 32,Very high idling rpm at startup. I imediately turn ignition switch back to zero, instantly the engine runs normal and instantly turn ignition switch back to position 1..

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

Thats about it .The engine runs very good except for the couple of secs of very high revs at startup. Of course I have to turn the ignition switch back to 0 so to avoid the continuation of high revs

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?

Both engines have just been serviced

Hi Ted,
Yes please I still need help.Yesterday I put the fuel intake hose and the return in a 5l container, diesel mixed with bardahl CRDI cleaner and after half an hour running there was some sludge in the bottom and I have new fuel filter, new racor filters and clean fuel tank.This morning I started the engine and no improvement.Still 2000 rpm at startup,I imediately turn the starter switch to kill it and as I put the switch to postion 2 it refs down. This morning the idling kept on 1500 and I noticed that when I turn the starter switch from position 2 to 0 the compressor clutch makes a couple of turns and stops.
Other than this issue, the engine runs smooth, the compressor comes in at about 1600 rpm and cuts at 2500 and the turbo comes in. The other engine is ok.Regards
Charles
