| | 2003 Honda BF225 losing oil
A few weeks ago we were out looking around for some early season fish and noticed a small slick behind the boat. Didn't think much of it as I had greased the motor and trim and fueled up to capacity until fuel came out of the overflow vent. Fast forward 2 weeks; neighbor calls as he's out on his kayak and tells us there is a MASSIVE slick behind our boat on the mooring.... We immediately rush down leaving my Mother waiting on Mothers day to get the boat out of the water to minimize any contamination and to take a look at the issue. Bring the boat out of the water and can't seem to find the leak. Bring the boat home and finally see some drops of oil, seems like they're coming from where the engine cover and lower cowling join together. Only dripping when the motor is trimmed up, and like i said only a few drops. We leave the motor trimmed up and the next morning he told me that there is a good sized puddle of oil under the starboard motor....
I did a search on here but never really found any definitive answers about this issue. You guys ever hear of anything like this?
Oh, the oil level was obviously lower than the port side motor but was not near the low level nor did we get any alarms and we've already done some hours this year....
Thanks in advance
