    1996 seadoo gti

    just purchased a used seadoo gti, i have full oil but the oil light came on, brought it back to the pier and let it set for a couple of hours, started it up again, small amount of smoke so i know there is oil being burned, light went out however when you sit still the light comes on. when i give it throttle it goes off, and on really sharp turns, is it just a faulty gauge? thanks for your help.

    On that carb'd model, I believe the throttle cable actuates the oil pump, thus giving it gas, gives it oil...should be ok, you might could do a small amount of pre-mix in the gas just to be safe, but not much. Also make sure your using a quality oil and should be good to go, buddy of mine has an 01 GS...his does the same thing.

    Not the gauge, but the float switch in the oil tank. The light only indicates low oil level in the tank...does not indicate low or no oil pressure.
