Hey all, had the starboard engine suddenly alarm with no oil pressure and go into limp mode. Plenty of oil. Bulb seemed firm. Then took the cowling off to find oil in air silencer and excess oil near prop. Any ideas?? Our dealership here know nothing about these engines and continually send it back faulty

You've come to the right place for help, but you should also include your Model and Serial numbers.

Sounds to me like an oil line leak, but I'm no expert.  There are world-wide experts on here that can point you closer!  [thumb]

rule #1 of this forum, post model and serial

no oil warnings are caused by a lack of detected oil pressure within the pump at the pressure sensor. The first order of business would be to establish if the engines have been serviced and are the oil tanks and filters clean.

When an ETEC senses a possible oil delivery issues the EMM increases the oil rate to try flush out any air and prevent any damage to the engine.  Therefore if there is air on the sensor or an issue with the oil sensor circuit the oil pump will deliver excessive oil to the engine which can end up everywhere.  First thing to do is to make sure all of your connections are secure and there is no where the oil pump can be drawing air into the system.  If you dont have the diagnostic software would be to try to "burp" the sensor by running the self winterization mode, during this procedure remove the oil sensor allowing any air in the passage to escape then push it back into the fitting after several cycles of the oil pump. Just make sure to put a rag down to collect the oil being expelled from the sensor port while it is being purged.

If the diagnostic software was available that would be very useful to monitor what the sensor is reporting to the EMM.
