Thread: Too much oil!

  1. #1

    Too much oil!

    I've got the iPad out here in the garage as I change the oil on my skis, and when I checked the dipstick before starting it was HIGH! I didn't know how high until I drained the engine just now. I got just over 4 qts! Dealer way overfilled... and I'm sure charged me for the extra quart!

    That would have lowered top speed too

    My dealer did the same thing as well, just to make things interesting.

    Common issue with dealers changing oil.

    3.3 quarts + filter is a normal oil change.

    Because there is still some oil in the sump and oil pumps!

    I used a decent vacuum pump and cranked the engine in drown mode after the first drain. I was able to put 3 quarts of Amsoil WCF back in, warm it up, and get line at 3/4 to the top of the hump. 2nd boat draining now!

    That would explain why your one boat was down 250-300rpm....
