Customer Question

I have a 2001 Sea Doo Islandia. I just got it out of the shop getting a full "check up" put it in the water yesterday, both engines ran great for about 30 minutes, then suddenly oil light and alarm goes off on right engine. I shut it down, crank it back up, runs fine for a little while then same thing again. They checked oil and everything at the dealer so I know it's not that. Ideas??!!

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

With the oil light going off, you will need to check the level on that engine. The alarm is for pressure and not level. If the engine was losing oil pressure as you ran, you could damage the engine.
