Question regarding milkshake
Hi everyone i just bought a jet ski this past weekend 06 yamaha fx 140hp. Over all in decent condition only 48 hours. It was stored for over a year. My question is after i got it to fire up the oil seems to have gotten water in eat. when i first started the ski it had low oil so i filled it back up and hooked up the hose and fired it up. My question is can water accumulate in the crankcase over time and form enough to create milk shake, or do i have a busted headgasket? Thank you in advance.

It will not be from just sitting.
There is something else wrong.

Ok what are some possibilities?
I crank it on, turn on water, let it sit for about 5 minutes n get n overheating warning. After this happening I turn off water immidiately n turn ski off. Have not looked at code yet. To my knowledge this seems to be related to a bad head gasket. Does it sound to anyone else like this also?

you need to do a leakdown test after you get some fresh oil in there. Do not overfill. Blown head gasket or cracked block possible

ok what else can be a possibility here i want to start by the basics simple procedures and start scratching things out.
The motor cranks right up and runs just fine 1300 rpms or so. Sounds even all around. Are their any o rings that are between cooling and oil passages?

Update removed my thermostat n it was clogged some white soap like substance but grainy like
In appearance like sand but once you touch it is mushy. Either way tested thermostat it works but I'm going to change it already while it's out.
This leads me to believe that it might have over heated n the reason why I'm getting milk shake hopefully that's not the case. I'll be doing a compression test tomorrow n see in what direction that points me too.

Here is the pictures i took of the thermostat right after removing it. What do you guys think this is?

If that is that corroded, imagine the rest of the engine. Has ski ever been flipped to your knowledge?
