    SLTX 1050 Oil Tank

    Hey, I'm hoping someone can help me out... Yesterday, I discovered a bunch of oil in the hull of my 1996 Polaris SLTX. I found the source of the leak. It appears to be dripping from some kind of valve, or something on the top of the tank. It looks like maybe it's supposed to let air into the tank to equalize pressure? anyways, something tells me it should not be dripping. Could it be faulty, or just from extremely rough water conditions yesterday? I've attached pics... any help would be appreciated

    If you are talking about the black and white valve at the end of the hose, it is a one way valve. It lets air in as the oil level goes down. If it is dripping oil, It is no good.

    The oil sender is sticking out. Push it back down in the tank.

    My suggestions;

    Relocate the oil tank vent check valve to higher in the hull. See this post for more info.

    Replace the weeping check valve with a new one.

    Make sure the oil level sender is properly seated into the oil tank opening and is well sealed.
