Where did the water come from ?????
I took my RXP out today for the first time in a few months. I removed all the old gas from the tank, Replaced my plugs with new ones, and my battery was fully charged and ready to go. I started the ski a few times during the week and everything seemed fine.
Today I go out and as soon as I get out of the NO WAKE ZONE, i start to pick up a bit of speed and I notice it start sputtering a bit, but I figured it would clear out or maybe it was one of the new plugs wasnt pushed in all the way or something.
I pulled back in to the dock and noticed the oil in the dipstick was white as if water was mixed with the oil.
After several attempts to get it to run correctly, The last time out it just didnt fire back up. I tried to start it at home and nothing...
I started to drain all the oil and I noticed my catch can had overflowed and created a mess in my hull!!
I drained everything and I'm now going through my second oil change.
Where the hell did the water come from ?? The oil was brand new at home. Where should I start to look for my problem ??
My last time out (few months ago) the ski was running really hard and pulled like a train. 80+ mph

take ur plugs out and gap them to 3.0 i think it is when i took my ski of the showroom floor it did this and this is what fixed mine. But i also over filled my oil and it always does this when i take off at first but then it goes away so try both things oil and plug gaps.

If your intercooler rusted out it could cause this. Or else the head gasket blew during 1 of your runs.

3.0= 3 inches
.300= about the thickness of a good pen
If this was money no one would confuse $3. to
30 cents to 3 cents.
Just teasing everyone but I still can't help with the milkshake oil.Whether its just water or antifreeze?
