Give us a little more info....

DId you have this problem before you did the LOF (Lube, Oil and Filter)?
If not, how many quarts did you put in?
If you have this problem before, give us a little more info...

Who, what, when, where, how and why..... Did the car overheat, etc...

mine stayed on for the first 10 to 15 sec after startup before the system got totally pressurized...are both of your drain plugs in tight? any leaks from beneath the car?

long story short, the oil resevoir cracked and all the oil leaked out. didnt notice until i started the car. i changed out the resevoir($$$). added new oil (7 quart mobil 1 5w20). the motor has never been over heated. i never had this problem before the LOF.
both drain plug are tight

Oil lines to tank/reservoir connected correctly/not crossed? Is there a check-valve in Maser dry sump system? I know some other dry sump systems have them to keep oil from draining from tank after shutoff.

To me, the focus should be directed toward the newly replaced reservoir and connections, etc.

Wierd....

Sounds like you have some air in the lines and the oil pump isn't getting a prime or you have lines crossed, etc.... Don't run it long, you'll be buying an engine.... How did the resi crack???
