Volvo penta aq151 how do drain engine oil


I haven't worked on boats for some time but in your case I remember we pumped the oil out through the dipstick tube. FYI you are in the wrong category, this is for cars. I would also contact a local boat dealer on this as well in case there is a simpler way to change the oil

Replaced gimbal bearing and can not get the alingnment tool to go in.


Check the factory tool with the shaft. Count the splines/teeth. I doubt they are balanced , but make sure there isn't set place the shaft has to go into. I would most likely say you received the wrong part. Factory, doesn't mean right. Especially dealing with a 98.

Check your impeller in the seawater pump ( at the front of the engine )
If the impeller blades stays even lightly bent after removal, change the impeller.
Check for obstructions in the hoses.
Remove the water hose going to the exhaust.
Run the engine, if here you have a good water flow ( more than at the exhaust itself ) the the exhaust mixer is obstructed. Try to clean out with HCl acid. USE ACID resistand GLOVES. Rince twice as well after the obstruction is gone...
