    Oh [email protected]%P, I pulled a bonehead and now full of H2O. HELP!!!!

    OK, I admit I pulled a bone head and it's a variation of other threads I've read. Anybody have suggestions besides change oil/filer continously and boil out procedure (if anybody can send me the procedure I'd appreciate it greatly)


    I was going to winterize my 2004 GTX (non supercharged). I put in some fuel stabilizer. hooked up the garden hoze to the threaded intake. turned the water on but just then the bat line called and had to take an important call. (forgot to turn off the H2O ). Returned a few minutes later with water coming out the back end like expected and tried to start it to run some stabil fuel through it but it wouldn't turn over. Called the shop and they said prob water filled the crank cases since the motor wasn't running.

    So my plan was to pump/suck out the oil several times and change oil/filter a few times until I get clean oil.

    I don't have a shop manual to read the "boil out" procedure so can anyone send or post it? I can't locate it by Google either.

    One good piece of info is that the motor has never ran since I filled it with water...if that matters.

    Any other advice for this to look at/for?

    Any and All advice is appreciated.

    Thanks from bonehead...

    Pull the plugs, open throttle full, stand back, and crank.....crank until it stops misting.....reinstall plugs, try to fire....if it lights, let it run, turn on water as normal...

    What does pulling the throttle fully do?

    It triggers the automatic ignition shutoff, so the injectors and sparkplugs don't fire.....Its used to pump extra oil into the crank from the PTO when doing an oil change...

    I did the same bomeheaded thing last spring!! You "hydolocked" the ski and you gotta get all that water out of the engine block, intake, exhaust ASAP! Go to pwctoday.com and do a search for "manuals" they have the "4-tec engine and shop manual on pdf files". If you cant find a 2004, just use the 2005 shop manual. If go it from them it's awesome. Here's the procedures from my 2005 manual.

    Section 01 MAINTENANCE
    Subsection 04 (SPECIAL PROCEDURES)
    %_1'&8_
    _
    TYPICAL
    1. Hose pincher
    CAUTION: When finished towing the watercraft,
    the hose pincher must be removed
    before operating it.
    SUBMERGED WATERCRAFT
    Drain bilge if water is present.
    If it was submerged in salt water, spray bilge and
    all components with fresh water using a garden
    hose to stop the salt corroding effect.
    Engine
    Refer to WATER-FLOODED ENGINE to validate if
    water is present in engine.
    CAUTION: Never try to crank or start the engine.
    Water trapped in the intake manifold
    would enter the combustion chamber through
    the intake valves and may cause damage to
    the engine.
    Throttle Body
    Throttle body should be lubricated to prevent
    corrosion if watercraft was submerged. Refer to
    STORAGE for procedure.
    WATER-FLOODED ENGINE
    If engine is water-flooded, it must be serviced
    within a few hours after the event. Otherwise engine
    will have to be overhauled.
    CAUTION: A water-flooded engine must be
    properly lubricated, operated then lubricated
    again, otherwise parts will be seriously damaged.
    Check fuel reservoir for water contamination. If
    necessary, siphon and refill with fresh fuel.
    To limit damages to the engine, perform the following
    procedure as soon as possible.
    Drain bilge if water is present.
    If it was submerged in salt water, spray bilge and
    all components with fresh water using a garden
    hose to stop the salt corroding effect.
    CAUTION: Never try to crank or start the engine.
    Water trapped in the intake manifold
    would enter the combustion chamber through
    the intake valves and may cause damage to
    the engine.
    Whenever the engine is stopped, all the valves
    close thus preventing water from being ingested
    in the engine.
    If water is suspected to be in the intake and the
    exhaust system, it must be drained as follows:
    Remove the intake manifold and drain it. Then
    suck out the water from the intake valve ports.
    Refer to 1503 4-TEC ENGINE SHOP MANUAL.
    Remove the water from oil/air separator breather
    hose.
    Remove the exhaust pipe and drain it. Then either
    remove the mufflers to drain them or siphon the
    water out of them. Refer to subsection EXHAUST
    SYSTEM.
    If water gets in the oil (oil will be milky), change
    the engine oil and filter as per procedure further in
    this subsection.
    Throttle Body
    Throttle body should be lubricated to prevent corrosion.
    Refer to STORAGE for procedure


    I would also use a compressor to blow out as much water out of everything! Good luck.

    You can also get the manual here:

    http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=63168

    Don't forget to pull the plugs and crank the engine to blow the water out of the cylinders before you try to start it. Otherwise, you can bend the connecting rods... Ron

    Thanks, I went to PWCToday and found a 2005 shop manual that referred me to MediaFire.com. Still trying to find a 2004 manual. Seems a person can retrieve from MediaFire but can't search it. Anybody know how.

    Back to the regularlly scheduled problem...... Pulling the intake manifold, oil/water seperator is more than I wanted to tackle. Since it didn't "run" with water do I need to get that involved or will mutiple oil/filter changes be enough? Opinions on if "boil out" is necessary in this situation?

    Actaully King of Fun above gave you a link to the 2004 manual above on Lurkers website. Here is the direct link incase you missed it. 168mb so it will take some time to download.
