Water in the oil!

Recommended Posts

I have a 200 hp outboard with a below deck oil reservoir and the cap is on the top of the gunwales and was left off for about a 12 hour rain. The inlet is about 3/4" and am not sure how much really got in there. My first thoughts were to pump it but thought maybe something like a seafoam additive would work to get rid of the water. I can't imagine a ton got in there but i don't want problems either. Any ideas guys????

I agree don't take a chance of hydrolocking your motor. Water is heavier then oil and Im sure it pulls from the bottom of the reservior. If you have any in the tank you will have issues more then likely.
