    Problem with GTX2003 SC

    hello guys. I need your advice. As some of yoou may remember I have bought some months ago a sea doo ski of 2003 supercharged with 185 hours on the clock. The ski was in good condition in general and it seemed like a bargain to me. After I had thoroughly washed it (the hull had som oil, water etc) i have stored for the winter. it was always on the trailer lifted up besides a month now where i was making some repairs to the trailer.last night I had finished with my repairs and when i lifted the trailer again it came out from the drains some fresh oil with some water. has anyone seen that before ? could it be that I am leaking oil from somewhere ? should I worry ? Please advise.

    have you checked the oil on the engine?
    did you check it the first time you noticed it?
    did you check it the second time?

    this could determine if you have a slow leak or a bad leak,

    they told me that in order to check the oil level I need to turn on the engine and then wait and then check the dip stick. is that true or can i check it as it is ?

    this is the first time I have notice it so I wouldn't know...

    where can I be leaking from and how easy is it to spot it ?
    i am so dissapointed

    Easy test. Dump some dye in the thing and test for oil level like you said. When that is done, flush it. If the stuff comes out has dye, you have a leak. It could be something as stupid as not tightening your oil cap. IIRC they were plastic and the new ones are metal. Could have cracked it then. Leaky o-ring

    Not a clue what you have in your area. You have to go to an auto parts store for that. Ask them for "Engine Oil Dye". Similar to what they have for AC, coolant, etc, etc.
