Reliable engine that is easy to maintain

By: Jerry Mona on June 1, 2022 at 4:27 pm

Brand: MerCruiser

Size: 5.0 to 5.9 Liters

Model: MerCruiser 5.0L

Year: 2013

Purchased: New

 
Full Review:

I have owned this engine for 9 years and have 200 hours on it. Have not had any major issues. Plus, it is easy to maintain and winterize. Just turn the engine block release valve (which is easy to access) and pull the boat drain plug. Easy-peasy.
