Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

Expert:  Charles replied 8 months ago.

Is this s steady beep or a 6 beep alarm and then silence?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Steady when running
Expert:  Charles replied 8 months ago.

Ok, that is either low water pressure to the engine, meaning that it is getting hot, or loss of oil pressure. Have you recently hit a sand bar or anything?

How do you check oil level?

I have not hit anything
Expert:  Charles replied 8 months ago.

Trim the engine down level. then remove the top cover. On the left side of the engine you will see the dip stick. Pull it out, wipe it clean, reinsert it into the hole, til it bottoms, then remove it and check to make sure that the level is between the hi and low marks.
