Check the oil. Make sure it's completely full.
2017 there were two different versions of the Compass, 1st Generation and 2nd Generation. I'm not sure if they both used the same engine but I think so. The 2nd Generation definitely had an issue of using oil and then shutting down when it gets low.
The engines were the same displacement, but the 2nd generation (Tigershark version) have a different head that increases the power by a dozen HP. One of the problems with the early Tigersharks was the oil consumption, but it didn't give any warnning, it just quit where it was because without enough oil the valves couldn't function. (There was a recall to fix the oil consumption problem.) So I think the warning that @KarylieAnne is getting is about a different problem. However, I don't have a solution for her.
