    Need Help, RXT sunk!

    Hey guys I have an 06 RXT that took in water. Was riding today open throttle and all of the sudden ski turned off on me, tried starting it backed up and was bogging out on me. After a few minutes noticed that I was taking in water as my rear was going under, was able to jump off but ski was almost under, luckily a friend caught up to me and were able to tow it in to the beach. After checking out inside of the hull was almost submerged and found that the exhaust piper clamp broke off and water was coming in. Fixed it and dumped all water out, changed plugs on water but ski wouldnt run. Issue: ski doesnt run and misfires, oil is milky and speedo keeps flashinh even with key off. Im assuming that I need to remove the intake and manifold as still has water. Any suggestions or recommendations? Thanks

    Get the water out of the intake and manifold ASAP. You'll have to do multiple oil changes. Maybe someone has better info on how to get the water out out of the intake. I know there is a method in the 4tec shop manual. If you can't get an exact answer soon I would take it to the dealership and have them do it.

    Salt water or fresh water?

    Your right about the intake holding water.
    It need to be emptied.
    After that then change the oil and filter.
    You can use any motor oil and do a couple changes and put a new filter with the last oil change with the correct oil.
    It needs to run ASAP to get the remaining moisture out of the motor.
    Back your trailer into the water and let it run for 20-30 min and even if you started with semi milky oil it will turn clear again.

    When initially cranking the ski remove the spark plugs to prevent hydo lock.
    After that install plugs and get to changing your oil.

    You need to follow the boil out procedure..It keeps the cost down and save you some time of doing 5 or more oil changes... As far as the gauge blinking, you have water in the connector to the fuse block or to the gauge. Try the fuse block/mpem..Dry it out and spray some electrical connection stuff in it...Deoxit works GREAT!!!!!

    The boil out method is in the 4tec shop manual, just in case you need instructions on how to do it. Just look it up online and you should find a manual.
