    I've recently started flushing my Yamaha 90 four stroke with Salt Away. After the first use my engine started making a chirping noise at idle speed. Has anyone else experienced this? Also I've noticed Salt Away doesn't inhibit rust any more than fresh water.

    I use it after every trip, no issues. I don't think your water jackets being clean have anything to do with engine chirps.

    You might want to google Yamaha chirping noise on low speed. My friends Yamaha does that as well. I have been told is a common issue with them. However, he said it isn't a big deal its just annoying.

    I did see that on a few sites. Must be just a coincidence.
