MCX Engine issues
While wakeboarding (04 xstar) the other day we had the low oil pressure alarm come on twice (gauge read 0). We turned it off immediately, let it rest for a couple minutes and fired her back up with normal oil pressure (25-40 PSI). We checked the oil level and it looked fine, boat was not running hot either. Other than the oil pump, could this be anything else?
Another issue we had was a little lifter tick in the engine. One of my other friends has an 04 tige with the GM vortec 5700 (from what I understand the MCX and this engine are very similar) and had the same lifter tick. Ran some valve cleaner through it and havenít heard the tick since. Wanted to know if anyone has had similar problems with the MCX.
