That's right!

It sounds like you might have a fuel filter that is not flowing properly, try having the fuel filter changed and see if that helps your starting problem.

Yep, it was blinking 3 times!

Possible issues include just about everything that can go wrong including major engine failure (Very expensive), batteries too low to start it (Common on my gasser) easily fixed, press Emergency start/Aux Start/Boost button to bring chassis batteries in the mix or start main engine to set isolator and provide chassis battery support.

To (And this one is not cheap either) OUT OF FUEL.

I guess I didn't do a very good job explaining it! After adding oil it runs fine and started the next day without problem!

I started this thread as a heads-up for anyone else who may experience the problem!
