    Bayliner capri 2.3 has water in oil-gctid806594

    So i know i could have a cracked block or bad head gasket but was wondering if this seal would allow water to get in the oil ?

    Yes, if the manifold/elbow gasket has failed raw water can run down the exhaust port and into the engine. If the exhaust components are old they may be rusted away on the inner cooling jacket as well also allowing water down the exhaust port. As you know there are other possibilities.

      That could be your problem. Who used the silicon gasket sealer on the riser? They make special gaskets for this

      and silicon gasket sealer should not be used.

        The previous owner did but i have the gasket to fix it correctly and was just hoping this might be the problem with the water in the oil because it runs well i just noticed the water in the oil after i got home from buying it, i should have checked before purchasing it

            I haven't checked for it but i will look and see what i can find, I really hope its just that gasket as it should be super simple to fix and i really dont want to put tons of money into a 1987 bayliner but i do like the boat alot

                Ground the ignition coil take out all the spark plugs and crank over the engine. See if water shoots out of the cylinders. If so you need to get all the water out and spray fogging oil in there to prevent rust. Then drain and remove the exhaust manifold and look for water rust stains in the exhaust ports. If so the the water could have come in thru the exhaust if not the it could be other things like a blown head gasket or cracked cyl head ....

                However if you have a blown HG, it will put water in the cyl and exhaust port. This can be misleading. So when you remove the riser look in the center exhaust gas passage for signs of water running down from the joint between the riser & manifold.

                  Pressure test before you take it apart.

                    So i took apart the manifold elbow to replace the gasket that the previous owner just used silicone on and this is what it looked like

                        So i compression tested it and i got 150,145,135,150 in each cylinder from front of motor to the back so im starting to lean towards a cracked block

                          Rule out the other causes first. Test the msnifold with acetone for leaks; do a leak down test, pressure test cooling system. There are a lot of ways for water to get into the oil. No water in cyls seen during comp test?
