    Check your oil filter for bearing material hopefully the prop didn't come loose

    So if no material in oil filter then prop came loose.

    No what he is saying is that hopefully your prop has not come loose. As when this happens you can do internal engine damage as the drive shaft is pushed towards the engine by the force of the rotating prop. When this can happen your thrust washers on the crank can fail. A sign of this is if your oil filter housing as swalf / filings in it.

    pull the pump first. if the prop is no longer screwed into the pump then your engine is toasted.

    The average is $2000 in repairs. maybe more due to the block and crank getting trashed if the prop did unscrew.

    Might be better finding a low hour short block and sticking it in.

    Who put the prop on? Did they use the right tools? was it torqued to at a minimum to the oem specs?

    hopefully we are wrong on the prop unscrewing.

    Where did all the oil go? is it all in the hull?

    Just had results today. Says its the supercharger seal. Allowing oil to leak out. Does Seadoo BEST warranty cover this
