Flooded motor need help!
Long story short I forgot to turn off the hose after getting the doo started after some upgrades. It ended up hydro locked. But i got it to turn over now. Now the oil is milky. What's the best way to fix this? I know there are previous threads about this but I was trying to find specifics about doing this. Sorry I'm a noob on ski's so any help is appreciated.

How long ago did you flood the engine?
What did you do to correct the hydrolock?

A few days ago. Took out the plugs and cranked it until I didn't see water. Also dumped the water out of the water box.

what rods do you have in the motor?
Trying to start a hydrolocked motor can result in a bent rod.
Get the water out of the motor ASAP! Oil change, heat the oil to bake the water out ect...

Suck all of the milk oil out and refill with cheap oil from the auto parts store. Repeat this process until the oil is no longer milky. As soon as it's not milky any longer go for a LONG ride, this will help evaporate any moisture left in the motor.

before going for a long ride..
after several changes with cheap oil.. while doing the changes.. CRANK THE ENGINE IN "DROWN" MODE FOR A 5 SECONDS.. give it about a minute in between Cranks.. do it several times.. (your circulating the cheap oil through the engine to help get the water out of the passages..
replace your oil filter, put in good oil..run it on the hose for a few minutes. make sure there are no issues.. check the oil level and for milkyness..
if all clear then go for a ride of about 45 min

Do it until it clears then replace with seadoo oil and filter. How cheap of oil is cheap? And what do you mean by drown mode? I won't be able to get on water for another month or so. Can I just run the water hose? This is a live and learn experience.

yes and no..
yes replace oil and filter with seadoo oil, after it is clear..
cheap oil is the cheapest you can find in your area.. you using it to flush the water out of the engine so its getting thrown away.. (check local laws on oil disposal)
you can run it on the hose for a long time, but you NEED to cool your carbon seal other wise it can warp and cause other issues..
otherwise don't run it for longer than a few minutes on the hose..

Great. .. If it's not one thing its another. I ran it for about 5 minutes with the hose. The oil looks like pail/transparent chocolate milk. I think I'm good for 1 change then seadoo oil and filter?
