If you have a Volvo Penta trim pump that needs to be bled, there is a specific process that you need to follow in order to do it correctly. First, you will need to locate the bleed screw on the pump. This is usually located on the top or side of the pump.
Once you have found the bleed screw, you will need to loosen it with a wrench. Be sure not to remove the bleed screw completely, as this will cause air to enter the system and make it more difficult to bleed the pump.
- Before beginning, make sure that you have the proper tools and safety equipment
- You will need a Phillips head screwdriver, a flat head screwdriver, a 10mm socket and ratchet, a 12mm socket and ratchet, a small pick, a small funnel, and new brake fluid
- Start by removing the Phillips head screws that hold the black plastic trim tab covers in place
- There are three screws on each side
- Once the trim tab covers are removed, you will see two 10mm bolts holding the trim tabs in place
- Remove these bolts and set them aside
- With the trim tabs removed, you will now have access to the trim pump
- Locate the bleed screw on the trim pump (it will be on the side that faces the engine)
- Using the 12mm socket and ratchet, loosen the bleed screw until brake fluid starts to drip out
- Once brake fluid starts to drip out, continue to loosen the bleed screw until all of the air bubbles have been purged from the system
- Once the air bubbles have been purged, tighten the bleed screw and reattach the trim tabs
- Reattach the black plastic trim tab covers and you are finished

How do you bleed a power trim pump?
Assuming you have a hydraulic power trim pump:
1. Locate the bleed screw on the power trim pump. This is usually located on the side or back of the pump.
2. Place a rag or towel under the bleed screw to catch any fluid that may drip out. 3. Using a 3/8″ wrench, loosen the bleed screw until fluid starts to drip out. 4. Once fluid starts dripping, tighten the bleed screw until it is snug.
5. Check the fluid level in the power trim pump and add fluid if necessary.
How do you bleed air from power tilt and trim?
If your power tilt and trim system isn’t working properly, it may be because there is air in the system. When this happens, you’ll need to bleed the air out in order to get the system working again. Here’s how to do it:
1. Start by locating the power tilt and trim bleeder screws. These are usually located near the top of the power tilt and trim unit. 2. Using a wrench, loosen the bleeder screws a few turns.
3. Have someone operate the power tilt and trim switch while you observe the fluid level in the power tilt and trim unit. 4. When the fluid level starts to drop, tighten the bleeder screws. 5. Repeat steps 2-4 until the power tilt and trim unit is working properly again.
How do you get air out of a trim engine?
If you have too much air in your trim engine, it can cause the engine to run less efficiently and may even cause it to stall. To get rid of the excess air, you’ll need to bleed the engine. This is a relatively simple process that anyone can do.
To bleed your trim engine, start by finding the bleed screw. This is usually located on the side of the engine, near the top. Once you’ve found the bleed screw, use a wrench to loosen it.
Be careful not to over-tighten the screw, as this can damage the engine. Once the bleed screw is loosened, you’ll need to start the engine and let it run for a few minutes. As the engine is running, keep an eye on the bleed screw.
You’ll see air bubbles coming out of the screw. Once the bubbles stop coming out, you can tighten the screw back up. That’s all there is to it!
By bleeding your trim engine, you’ll get rid of any excess air and help keep your engine running smoothly.
What fluid goes in a Volvo Penta trim pump?
Volvo Penta trim pumps are designed to work with a specific type of fluid, called trim fluid. This fluid is a specially formulated hydraulic fluid that is designed to work in high-pressure, high-temperature environments. It is also designed to be compatible with the seals and other components in the trim pump.
If you have a Volvo Penta trim pump that needs to be bled, here’s a quick guide on how to do it. First, make sure that the boat is securely moored and the engine is turned off. Then, locate the bleed screw on the trim pump (it will be on the side of the pump near the bottom).
Using a wrench, loosen the bleed screw until you see air bubbles coming out of it. Once the air bubbles have stopped, tighten the bleed screw and turn on the engine. The trim pump should now be working properly.
