    Spark Coolant

    I had to take one of the heat exchangers out to fix a leak, now it's time to add some antifreeze. What is safe to add from the Advance auto parts down the street? Or does this require a trip to the dealer? Thank!

    hey +1 on vault boy

    I'd go with a high quality premixed for a top up, but frankly speaking ,mixing af brands does have some minor risks.

    BPnta ,If you drained all coolant and adding new just add a pre-mix for 4 stroke (synthetic) and you will be fine. If you are close to a marine store or a PWC store buy what they recommend for the spark. But you should be just fine, I personally would make sure it was completely drained because there could be a negative result, but probably not catastrophic in nature ..... Just my 2 cents..

    Extended Life Coolant,
    Ethylene glycol and distilled water (50%/50%).
    Use BRP long life antifreeze (P/N 219 702 685) or
    coolant specifically formulated for aluminum engines

    @Mata,
    Just from memory but remove coolant reservoir cap.
    Put a small drain pan under water pump drain torx screw, bottom one. Front of engine on right hand (starboard side).
    Siphon out as much as you can from reservoir tank (expansion).
    Than disconnect heat exchanger outlet hose and siphon more from the top of heat exchanger.
    When you get it all put hose back on and SeaDoo suggest using a new washer that is on the drain plug(sealing washer).
    But any whooo front part of engine just under coolant/expansion tank to the right bottom male torx bolt and will have a lip under it where the coolant hits and than drains into your cup or what ever you use. Yes you have to remove top deck.
