    Default Not a good day

    After picking up my boat from the dealer after being serviced I went to the lake. It started to white smoke a little and notice no oil pressure. When I went to check the oil the oil dumped all out and could not find the leak. Do you think I done any dsmage to the engine? It started to make all kinds of noises.

    They forgot to add oil? What service was done?

    My first thought is they're buying you a new engine!

    The oil dumped out into my hull, every single drop. I dropped it for a oil change.

    fill it with fresh oil and run it, then drain the oil and check for metal shavings, then refill it and run it again, if it is not making any major knocking noises then i would think you are ok

    oh yeah, find the leak before you do any of this

    I'd be tempted to send them a letter immediately stating that you are very thankful they told you to drop it off and detailing all of the facts related to the service so far and that you are looking forward to a positive outcome.

    Seeing how you just dropped it off for an oil change, i would suspect the oil drain plug on the bottom of the engine. Also since they just did the oil change, then they should be responsible for cleaning out the bottom of the boat of all the oil. Its not unreasonable to make them give you a 100 engine hour warranty to ensure you don't have any problems.

    Several times over the years i have had cars taken for oil changes and has similar issues. They always gave a 10K mile warranty right from the shop that if anything lubrication related failed it would be covered y that shop.

    I've seen people leave the old seal from the old oil filter on the housing and when the new one is installed, there are two seals that do not seal! That will also leak much of your oil out in no time and ruin an engine. Whatever the case may be, sounds like you shut it down quickly.

    I'd have a hard time taking my boat to them after an incident like this. Could just prove incompetence of their mechanics. Thats just me, I have a hard time letting anyone but myself touch my boat.

    The dealer called and told he it was a faulty oil filter and they cleaned the oil up. They also said no damage was done and there is were still oil in the engine.
