    You probably got water in the air intake, which got sucked into the cylinders and dripped into the oil.

    Before doing anything, remove the airbox and make sure there's no water in it. Also, be sure to drain the intake manifold. There's a drain plug at the rear of the manifold.

    If the oil level is high, siphon out some oil before cranking the motor.

    Then, remove all spark plugs and crank the motor to see if water shoots out. Crank until water stops shooting out.

    After making sure your intake and cylinders are dry, then start changing the oil. Cheap oil is OK, or you can even put in clean used oil. Just run it until the oil is hot, then repeat the process. Two or three oil changes should clean out the oil. Just look for milky oil and condensation in the oil fill cap to see if more changes are needed.

    Don't wait too long to do this. If you sucked in salt water, the inside of your motor can start to deteriorate within a few hours.

    I did it to my ski, I ran cheap oil through it and changed a few times, then when most of moisture was gone I ran it under load and got it hot to evaporate the rest out of crankcase vent....then changed it again. I reused my oil filter a few times and just dumped the milky oil out of it....when I took it out I had a fresh filter on, but while on trailer I just keep using one Filter to save some $.....I deserved it LOL it was my fault

    Yea I used car oil to flush out

    oilh might mean High oil pressure, due to being overfilled or having water in it making it milky
