    Rusty valve stems have been the death of many a 04-06 seadoo... change those out and new head gasket and with a propper coolant system leak check when it's all back together and you will have a good ski again.

    my 2004 ski had a head gasket failure. My engine had water coming into it, not coolant. Eventually the engine would not turn over anymore because the cylinder was filling up with water. Nothing broke, nothing was rusty, but someway somehow the water was coming into the cylinder
