could this happen , seized engine ,
Hi I am in a bit of a dillemma if someone could give me a answer.
Ok here is the problem , I put my 2 seadoos 2002 4tec in the local dealer to get summarized and fixed , 2 new impellers batteries ect , cost was $2300.00 , ok put them in the lake for the first time this season after 10 minutes in the water one of them filled with water , about 3 inches below the oil cap , called the dealership and they said bring it in. I took it right there and left it with them. A few days later I got a call and they said it was the opas that had broken. I asked if the engine was ok and they said it was running perfect but wanted to put it in the lake just to make sure there was no more leaks. Then i get a call saying that the pistons have gone , crank broken , and a bent rod need to be replaced , cost $5000.000 But what i don't understand is that when i spoke to the general manager he said that the damage was done when it happened on the lake ,, hmmmm i said but it was running perfect in the shop before you tested it on the lake , i could sense like something was going on at this time , anyway he said it would have hidrolocked on the lake and when the done the oil flush and removed the spark plugs it started and ran fine and that he never took it to full power in the shop so would have not known the problem with the crank , bent rod , and pistons , i said surely the tech gut would have heard a funny noise or something , he said no it was up and running good , i am not up to date with engines but how can a engine seize and then un - seize , run perfect , then sees again my question is could this happen , i just get the feeling when i talk to them that they screwed up somewhere and not taking responsibility . any info please . thanks in advance .
