    newbie help

    Heres the deal....
    I live in th great state of Maine. Having trouble finding a good pwc engineer. Everyone wants to replace the impeller. After the last impeller replacement, #2 in 2 years, The oil warning light comes on after a cold start. After the 3 minutes of starting and running the ski at idle, when I try to accelerate the oil warning light comes on and the ski shuts down.. after this the ski runs fine..engine oil level is good... Any feedback would be appreciated .

    Try replacing the oil sensor. Also, what 2004 GTX do you have? 155, 185, or 215 limited?

    When its not the oil sensor. Check your SC washers.

    The early oil pressure sensors had peoblems. They're around $25 if you change it yourself. Are you sure that you are checking the oil correctly? You need to: level the ski, warm engine, idle for 30 seconds, stop engine, wait for 30 seconds, then check the oil. It should be in between the bends on the dipstick... Ron
