    water in motor!!!!

    2009 SEADOO rxtx
    Lots of water in the engine. A week ago I rolled it in the ocean and had the hull full of water. Got all the water out.

    Now I check the dipstick and there is a milky residue.

    Change the oil, run it till it's hot for about 20 minutes or so (not on the trailer), change it again, run it again and repeat until it stays clear. You can use the cheap oil until it's clean. If the engine hydrolocked be prepared to replace the engine once it slings a rod through the block.

    Awesome! I will do about 4-6 oil changes and use 5w 30 Castrol oil from advanced auto. One more question, every time I change should I also change with a new oil filter?
    I'm buying an oil extractor from harbour freight that siphons all the oil and water out with compression. What about spark plugs, how many sets?
    No hydro lock!!! She runs and just a lot of white smoke. Thank you.

    Better do a comp check and see if you bent a rod. If you left salt water in motor for a week there's defiantly rust in cylinder walls and other assorted steel or iron parts. You just considerably shortened the life of your motor by not getting water out the day it happened.

    You need to get the water out of the air intake before running it more.
    Once you've emptied the air intake hoses then change the oil.
    When you change it back your trailer into the water then run it for 20-30 min.
    That will get the rest if the moisture out.
    Due to the fact that salt water has sat in your motor for that long I'm afraid to say you might have some upcoming issues.
    Tick tock.
    You've already waited too long so the sooner the better..

    That motor needs to be run soon.
    Don't run it on the hose for more than 1-2 min or else you risk messing up the carbon seal.

    Tick tock.

    If it were mine I would change the filter last but others might have another opinion. Change the plugs after the oil is clear. You won't be able to tell anything as far as a bent rod using a compression tester. Just get it cleaned out ASAP!

    The motor will tell you if you bent a rod.

    When it blasts a hole in the side of the motor.
    Compression tester isn't going to do you any good for that.

    Good luck!!!
