Customer Question

I ran my 2005 optimax 225 low in oil yesterday and it went in limp mode and would only do 7mph. One of our friends gave us oil so we filled the tank but that did not fix the problem. I thought it might have air in the lines based on the sticker on the tank so U loosened the cap on the engine mounted tank until oil flowed out. Still did not fix the problem.
