  • 2003 yamaha 130 oil leaking

    I'm having two problems with my oil system. One is the engine tank takes a really long time to fill up. I have to leave the key to the on postion for about 2 hours for it to fill. Another problem is sometimes when I know the tank was full the day before, then the next day the oil is in between the max and min lines. I don't see any oil leaking. Could it somehow get drained back down the oil lines? When the engine is down it doesn't drain. Thanks guys

    There is an inline strainer that could be clogged?
    These pumps don't last forever,maybe take it apart and clean it and it might be clogged.

      Yeah I think you are right. It may be clogged. What could be causing the oil to drain halfway? Also i may replace the entire oil line. On the yamaha website it's pretty expensive. Does it need to be a yamaha line or can i buy any type of oil line?

        Remove the big oil tank and the lines going to it.

        Disassemble the components like was previously mentioned. I'd clean it all in mineral spirits. Chances are you have some sludge and contamination.

        You'll have to inspect the rubber hose to see if it's something you can purchase at an auto parts store. Sure expensive stuff thru Yamaha.

        That part of the oil system is pretty simple. After a good cleaning and a filter, you'll be ready to go.

          So i went to boat to remove the tank and its in a really hard place to remove. I noticed there was a thin strip of metal goibg over the top that had a bolt going thru it. I removed that. But it still is stuck. What else holds the tank in place?

            Nothing holding it. Just muscle it out. Probably the sludge holding it in.

                  Shouldn't be anything holding it in once the strap is removed. Maybe the sludge, dirt, oil, etc. has "glued" it in. Muscle it...
