yes ran out of oil no warning..my fault was letting it run down so i could change oil brands and dint know it was that low as of last time i checked it also has a reserve on motor and it was out also..so it was a costly mistake on my part..after talking to several shops looks like my best option is to order a new powerhead and switch it out..just cant afford dropping 10,000 on new motor even though it would be nice..and im told the new powerhead will have at least a year warranty
