    Before the season I had it serviced and after a few hours of pushing I checked the oil and it was 3/4 of a quart low. Now i checked it with the piston all the way down and it in the V position. After getting out of the truck a few hours later there was fluid all over the pump. I know the MVP's have an issue with the breather cap but i keep loosinf more fliud out of the cap. If i put more in it wont hold it and is sounds like the motor starts to struggle with it gets low. Any suggestions? What are my next steps. It is still warranty too.

    If it still underneath warranty, I would bring it back and have them fix it right........
