    2000 GTi - Oil in the hull?

    I just bought a used 2000 GTi. There is a significant amount (1/4 inch deep in the center of the hull) of brown oil/water mix in the bilge. Is this normal or should I be worried about oil line security or something else?

    I have cleaned the bilge several times. Each time I use the PWC there is fresh oil in the bilge. Has anybody else experienced this in a Sea-Doo with the 720 engine? Any clues on where it's coming from?

    I have oil in the coolant overflow tank. Any suggestions what it can be? That is no coolant that I see in the engine oil.

    My oil tank had a leak on mine. It was a two piece tank leaking between the black glue. Had to replace the tank. It was a rip off. $75 I think. Clean the hull again and try to dry it. Then take a mirror and run you hands around for the leak. The oil hose that runs threw the motor may have come loses or one of the hoses was rub threw. Some oil tank leak around the bottom rubber piece. They all leak a little it seems. But with 2 stroke oil so prices. good luck

    I have a 1997 GTI with the same problem. I clean the inside of the hull, and when I get back from the lake, there is some oil in bottom. I have not spent a lot of time trying to find it, but I noticed the fitting on the oil tank seems to be pretty wet. Just been too busy to try to locate the problem.
