"I have a V-8 Mercruiser engine that when I start it, it makes this loud grinding or squeaking noise (metal to metal. When I accelerate the engine, it stops. When it is back to idle, it squeaks again. I thought it was the power steering pump because it happened before when it went dry but when i check it this time, it had fluid and it appeared fine. Any ideas or suggestions out there?
Thanks in advance"
