    Smoke after changing oil

    Hey guys. I had water ingestion in my 07 gtx. So I'm in the process of doing a few oil changes. I'm doing 2 changes. After the first change I ran the ski for 2 mins at idle to insure a correct reading. About a 1 min into it some smoke started to come out from what looked to be just below the exhaust manifold. What could be causeing this and how can I stop it. The j pipe is tight all clamps seem to be tight. in the process of pulling the oil now for another change.
    thanks -Alex

    When you were running it you had it hooked up to the hose correct?

    If it cleared Was probably coming out of the crank case recirc when it started to heat up and burn off some of the water in the oil.
    Doing a boil off as per the manual is the easiest way to clear the remaining water out of the engine and ensure it's completely clear.

    In Future... What I have been through

    Put that ski in the water via trailer let it run and get hot. That will help evaporate the water in the oil, in the process take the oil filler cap off and let it just idle. You can visually see the steam comming out of the filler tube. I would just let it idle for 15-30 min in the water to full eng temp then do a oil change and filter then repeat( you may at that time drive it cautiously). Then repeat the cycle til oil is clean

    the thing I did that got all the water out was
    to unhook both the oil cooler lines from the water pump
    then ad a short bypass hose
    this really heats up the oil (boil off)
