Lower unit oil


Recommended Posts

I have a 2013 H2O with 10 hours on it and I noticed my lower unit oil reservoir is showing the level at the add oil line. Is this normal for a new motor that is being broken in? I want to say that someone said it is normal but not sure. Also, is there a particular lower unit oil that I need to add or is any acceptable?

I have 6 hrs on mine and when stopped in for fuel I had to buy lower unit oil to top as I was just above line and didn't want to go low. The marina I stopped at was not selling dealer but mentioned that this is normal. Will ask my dealer at 20 hr service but keep eye on meantime. You need to get green/blue fluid not brownish.

That's normal I always have to add a little oil on lower units after changing the fluid and running a few hours on my mercruisers. Most of the later models take the high performance gear lube that is the blue/green color mentioned above. Blake
