    Genesis i blown engine
    I bought a new 2003 Genesis i with a135hp 1200 direct injection engine in june 2004. I have 48 hours on it and the engine blew. The dealer said it blew because of water damage. Thier was surface rust on the cylinder heads, pistons, bearings, etc.

    I have never tipped it over in the 3 years and have no idea how water could have gotten in the engine. I took a look at the engine and it looks like the middle head blew and scorred the other two cylinders.

    Any thoughts on how water got into the engine or how the engine blew?
    The only other work done on it was a new starter that was put in last year by the dealer. It was out of warrenty in June. Any luck dealing with Polaris in geting something like this fixed. The dealer wants $4,800 to repair. I just about had a heart attack!

    Re: Genesis i blown engine
    my guess would be the head gasket let go and was alowing water to come into the cylinder.....

    I think that was Andy SLX780 that was looking for me. He found his way here though.
