What are the defects?

The engines may have been fitted with an Idle Air Control Valve (IAC) that is out of specification. An out of specification IAC may prevent the engine from returning to a slow idle speed after the engine has been run at a higher speed, meaning the engine speed may remain much higher than normal.

What are the hazards?

If the engine speed remains higher than normal, it may be difficult to shift out of gear and into neutral. This could lead to loss of control of the boat, increasing the risk of an accident and injury.

What should consumers do?

Consumers with affected engines requiring repair should stop using their boat. Owners of affected engines have been contacted in writing by Marine Power International to request that they contact an authorised Mercury Marine dealer to schedule a service appointment. Please mention Mercury Service Outboard Bulletin 2021-04R1.
