Re: No oil alarm

Same exact scenario happened to me today with my 5 month old 115 etec. I heard the awful noise and fear I damaged the cylinders. ?

We need the model number of your motor before we can answer your question. Thanks.

Re: No oil alarm

E115DSLAFI - cruising at 3/4 throttle. Oil alarm sounded. Immediately shut it down, turned it off. Tried to pump my oil primer ball but it was tight. Restarted no alarm at idle then 20 seconds later sounded again. Shut it off. Waited a few minutes. Tried to restart and it smoked and sounded horrible. Thought I blew it up. Got towed in.... end of January my fuel pump cracked and had to replace the pump. Under warranty. No problems since. I talked to my certified dealer AB Seas marine. He believes it’s air in the oil sensor or line. Has advised me to run it at idle and pump the primer ball until it smokes. Then shut it down. Hopefully you agree

Your motor is a 1999 model which is quite different than a '98, although they may look similar.

 

It is possible to have more than one problem component and that a thorough troubleshooting by the factory service manual procedure is the best way to find out what may be at fault. The system oil pressure has to be checked at low speeds.

 

It is likely that the oil pressure sender could be out of spec, the oil pump worn and not building up enough pressure at low speed, or the oil pressure regulator could be faulty.  If the motor is blowing blue smoke and using excessive oil in addition to the no oil warning, the oil injector check valve could be stuck open. Don't overlook a restricted oil filter inside the tank or a problem or air leak with the oil hose and connectors.
