The dealer will have charges for removal and replacing for the total process. . If Merc was willing to help all, then they would have QUIT putting paint internally of the gen 3 cool fuel instead having many years of paint shedding.. .. Again the paint issue was from late 2005 thru 2017 models and is so commonly known plus many have barked as Merc for this issue. .

. Actually prob I was one of the first ones who found this mess because I have been servicing marine fuel injectors for almost 13 years personally with proper testing equipment. . We seen paint start shedding within 2 years of gen 3 cool fuels being new in many Mercruiser models including the 496. .If you need any help regardless about any of it, I am easily found.. THANKS
I have just bought a boat with twin 496 HO from 2009 with 150 hours on them. How can I check to see if the paint has peeled and clogged up the injectors or other parts of the fuel systeM? How can I prevent it- replace the cool fuel modules or what all?

If you have a 09 the problem with the paint has been taken care of.
