I'm not sure what the etiquette is for having two threads at the same time, but I feel the initial answer was solved
and a new one has emerged!
After noticing oil
spouting from crankcase breather hose while attempting to turn over my motor
(would not start, which is unusual), I drained the oil
to find 4 gallons of saltwater in my oil sump. I pulled the injectors and one cylinder spouted water
. I tried sucking it out with a hose and it kept topping off. I'm assuming it's refilling with the raw water
inlet for the motor
, or possibly backed up water
in the exhaust
I got some feedback that it could be the raw water
oil cooler gone bad, which would explain the water in the sump, but wouldn't water in the cylinder be more indicative of backflow from a full exhaust
? But if that's the case, how would that much water get in the sump unless I have a cracked cylinder head
I'm really hoping that's not the case! Any advice
is much appreciated!
