    Help!!!! Low oil again???

    Ran the ski on the hose and oil level was at the bottom mark so put it in the lake took it for a spin. Checked it again and it was right in the middle. 2 1/2 hrs later oil light came on and went into limp mode for a sec then was fine, so check the oil right away and it was at the bottom mark either Im doing something wrong or i have a problem.

    Heres what I know.....

    -No Oil in the coolant

    -Contents in the Catch can havn't changed, Just has a little bit of gas/oil with almost no oil mixed in.. But i did notice some of the crap in the catchcan it being blown out the filter

    -No smoke coming out of the exhaust when running on the trailer with no hose.

    -No oil in the intake pipes or cooler.

    -Compression is 135-140 on a cold motor.

    heres what the plugs look like after a couple hrs

    Is this problem after an oil change? Have you topped off the oil and tried another test run? Are you checking the oil with the ski level?

    Plugs look typical, and my guess is the left to right is #1 to #3.

    How much oil are you finding you have to put in when you notice it?
