  1. #1

    Default Rotax 582 slightly oilleak out of carb.

    Hi,

    till a few months, I recognze a slight leak of oil at my right carburator (rear), before flight.
    Immediately after fligh nothing happens or seen.
    It flows out of the carb inside the airfilter. Rotax 582 with oilpump, any ideas or experiences?

    Iíve had the same on mine. I believe the banjo fitting on the oil injection lines from the pump has a check ball inside it that can get stuck, allowing oil to flow when itís shut down.

    Olif,
    I also have an oil pump however I've not seen a oil leak from the carb. I'll be checking a little closer. it's good to know there may be a check ball inside the oil line.

    Thanks,
