    2009 fzs sho using oil

    Hi all I have a 2009 fzs sho, that has 40 hours on it, it runs fantastic, however for some reason it has begun using about 1qt of oil every 1/2 hour or so, the ski does not ever smoke while running or on start up. On the water you can see oil on the water behind the ski, but I have not been able to isolate where it is coming from. No signs of any leaks inside the hull. I did do a compression check and it has 120 psi on all cylinders, I would think if it was a rings of valve stem seals i would have some smoke, especially considering how much oil it is using. Any ideas on how or where oil could be getting out of the exhaust or into the cooling would be appreciated. I see no signs of water in oil, however i'm not sure

    Thanks

    Your oil cooler is probably leaking oil out the pee line.

    cdsn99.....did you ever find the reason your fzs was losing oil so quickly? I have the same ski and I have started to see the ski blow through 1qt oil per hour.

    Yes it turned out to be the oil cooler, had a pinhole leak in it.

    Thanks david3aces for pointing me in the right direction. It was the oil cooler.
