- water temperature
- oil level
The oil level fault wasn't present last year. This year while de-winterizing and before launching, I topped off both engines' remote oil tanks. I filled the tanks to the top of the filler neck and there was an audible GLUG-GLUG GLUG from air gurgling to the top of the filler neck. Apparently I shouldn't have filled to the top of the neck, but what's done is done.
After starting the engines on a hose adaptor, the Starboard engine Smartcraft tachometer gauge showed an oil level fault.
A "center gauge " reads 0.0.
I followed the bleed procedures for the under-cowling oil tank three times, but got no remedy.
I still get the OIL LEVEL FAULT on the Starboard engine Smartcraft tachometer gauge and also on a "center gauge " with a reading of 0.0 for Starboard [oil tank] level; reading for Port [oil tank] level is 2.5 gallons.
Since there's a specific gallon reading, I'm assuming that the oil tanks have a level sensor.
There is a noticeable amount of pressure in the oil tank when unscrewing the cap after operation. I assume this is normal, but maybe not.
Assuming there are sensors and connectors for the tank level for the oil tanks,
Q1: should I be troubleshooting a sensor?
Q2: should I be troubleshooting a connector?
Q3: is the remedy to recalibrate the Smartcraft gauges?
Q4: what is the procedure to recalibrate a Smartcraft gauge?
