2010 RXT-X Water Ingestion
Well, Sea Doo engine seized on the lake last weekend. Dealership is saying we cracked the middle piston. Sea Doo is saying it was caused by water ingestion. It has never been turned over or rolled. So now for the question. What are the ways one can get water ingestion.

The easiest way to hydrolock the ski is to run the ski on the hose incorrectly! If you ran the water hose without the engine running, too long it WILL flood the intake manifold and the cylinder head!

Also, jpt7779, correct me if I am wrong, but you can also get water ingestion if you have something caught up in your grate and you flip the ski on its side incorrectly while on shore. The water in the exhaust system can drain back into the motor.
