    Mercury Power Trim Problems

 I just got my fishing boat out of the shed for the fishing season and noticed a problem w/my power trim. The motor is a 1993 50 hp Mercury and as I was trimming the motor up w/ the cowl button, it made a sound like a 12v air compressor, but the motor will raise and lower. This definitely doesn't sound good but the trim is working. Does anyone know what is causing this problem and how to fix it? Will it hurt to run the motor like this?

 Chad first check the fluid level, Raise the motor all the way up first. If that is okay then you may have water in the pump motor, bad housing seal or pump fluid in the pump motor, bad shaft seal or corroded shaft.
