    Oil in Antifreeze....

    OK so this is something I have been dealing with for a while now and have done a few things to try to eliminate this issue. I have replaced the head gasket, and PTO cover as well..

    Not after every ride, but I am finding oil in the hull and also in the coolant bottle. I have a catch bottle for the overflow from the coolant bottle to catch any oil I thought may be going into the hull...

    On my way back to the ramp the other day and I get a Oil Buzzer...Goes in limp mode as usual...Get back and find oil in the hull as well as Maybe 8ozs of oil in the catch bottle.

    Have checked the oil consistently and have never seen any coolant in the oil...Just oil in the coolant.

    Would the Oil Cooler be the only thing left to check?? I will be pressure testing this tonight...Just thought I would ask for some ideas...





    ANY SUGGESTIONS??

    Thanks!!

    You might have to do a leak-down test, there is a possibily of a blown head gasket.

    Check the PTO bearing.If this isnt snapped back together it will leak...If you cannot find the internal check the water pump seal..they can and will go bad leaking oil into the cooling system also..

    Brian, I think it might be in the PTO, also. As you know, the aft oil pump and the water pump share the same shaft. There are two seals that keep the oil and water from combining... one or both may be failing.

    There´s a small hole on the rigth side of the PTO take a look on that one and see if there´s any signs of oil or coolant
