Thread: Milky Oil

  1. #1

    Milky Oil

    Hi,

    I did a bad thing and left the hose running on my RXP with the engine off.

    The engine filled with water. I removed the spark plugs and turned the engine over. I sprayed some WD 40 into the cylinders and started it. Blew out all the water from the exhaust.

    The oil is now milky and I need to flush it. I have removed all the oil from the engine and about to put some new oil in and flush it again.

    Is it recommended I use some oil flush additive in the motor, run it for 5 minutes, or is that a bad thing?

    Thanks

    hi, sorry to hear that, but its not the end of the world.
    You're taking the right steps except id reccomend changing the oil at least 4-5 times. When you change the oil on these ski's you dont get all the oil out. there is usually about a quart left in the motor, this is why i recomend changing the oil quite a few times. Dont use expensive oil for the changes just cheap oil that way it wont wreck your wallet. After you've changed it four times go buy some good oil and change it one last time. After finished with the last change i'd recommend fogging the engine much like youd do for winterization. After doing this go and ride it for a LONG time as this will help heat everything up.

    there will be other opinions but this is what i'd do if i were you.

    Hi thanks for the response.
    Can I use any type of oil instead of the 10w40 and can I use the oil flush additive?

    A flush additive (basically diesel fuel) is only for cleaning deposits and build up out of your motor. And since most skis are never riden nearly as much as you drive your daily car or truck, you'll never put enough hours on the motor of your ski to have this really become an issue. Just keep up with your oil changes regularly.

    Anyone can Explain Why this happens, Where does the water mixes inside the motor with oil once this happens? Does something breaks that allows this to occur?

    nothings break at the moment its just that water is not a good lubricant.

    I'd check to make sure your intake isn't full!! You have to take it off to drain it
