    Engine troubles

    What is the worst /best case. I get water in the oil when running on a hose. The engine is not using antifreeze. Number 1 cylinder seems to be the culprit, the engine did not overheat. Did notice water droplets on number 1 spark plug when I pulled it. It has seen a hard life, over 200 hours with more than a stage three kit.The ski is a 05 RXP, thinking of moving to a RXT, and parting the RXP out.

    engine trouble

    I don't think it is the intercooler since only one plug was wet.I am going to check it still. The ski runs and actually doesn't sound to bad. I believe the other two cylinders are firing. I didn't think the outside water went through the head, but I'm not real familiar with the cooling passages.

    Suggest you first pull the intercooler first and pressure check it. You can get a leak in the very front and water will only get into #1 cylinder.

    before you do anything, did you start the engine THEN turn on the water? Did you also turn off the water BEFORE you shut off the engine? Common mistake and could flood your engine for sure.
