    water in oil?

    Good day all, need some advice/help here!!!

    I have a 2005, supercharged GTX Sea-Doo and I went to changethe oil on Saturday. I followed the procedurelaid out in the service manual. I ranthe craft for approximately 1 minute, let it stand for about 5 minutes and thenproceeded to remove the oil filter cover. To my horror, the oil within the filter and motor was milky white incolor meaning that water had somehow entered the engine. I also noticed that the coolant recovery tankwas empty and needed filling. Iím assumingthat coolant is somehow entering the engine. Any ideas oh where I should look first or is this even something a backyardmechanic can fix?

    Remove the spark plugs. Take the top off of your coolant tank. Blow air into the open spark plug holes, if air comes out the coolant tank, you might have a blown head gasket, or cracked head.

    In regard to a backyard mechanic being able to fix it... depends totally how good that backyard mechanic is. I have seen "professional" mechanics that would not be able to fix it!!!!!!
