    Exclamation **Corroded Engine… HELP!**

    Last year I had my 17’ fresh water only Trixx with 13hrs winterized at a local dealership and was told the engine was sprayed down with anti-corrosion lube. However, at the time of pickup I was told they did not remove the top deck to perform the winterization which sounded odd…

    A few days ago I took the top off to winterize my now 25hr ski myself, only to find a white engine block! The entire block was corroded, with the exception of an area directly below the oil filler neck. It looks like they got a little messy with the change and some oil ran down the neck onto the block directly below, protecting that area from corrosion. This area looks brand new! However, the rest of the surface on that same casting is all white along with the rest of the block.

    I don’t think the dealer ever sprayed anything down with anti-corrosion lube, but the dealer says otherwise…

    Does this sound right to you?
    What do you think?
    What’s the best way to fix this?

    Thanks in advance!

    You need to spray the engine after every ride. You can’t expect one coating a year ago to prevent corrosion for an extended period of time. Get yourself a few cans of fluid film in the beginning of the season, Rinse the motor off after Each use, let dry and apply the Fluid film.

    Maybe try rinsing the engine bay with salt away and try and remove any corrosion if it isnt too late...i buy numerous cans of the xps spray and coat the entire engine bay from day 1 and then over again about every other ride ..engine looks like new after 3 seasons and even after sinking once
