because it had been over 4 months since I had been to the boat I checked the oil before attempting to start it and it was right up the dipstick I guessed water and upon sucking it with the pella it was, as said before I got over 6 litres of water out before oil started coming out, at that point the oil level was back to normal

do you have a tubular oil cooler heat exchanger?  If yes it might be that the tubes are porous and letting water into the system!!

I must admit I can't think of how the water ended up in the sump. Is there a Calorifier linked to the engine coolant system? {even then I can't quite work it out}

Hi ADI
This is a real mystery. Surely the fluid level in the sump must have been nearly to the top of the dip stick   tube.
The engine cant have pumped it in there while running or it would be all milky if not seized and in the filter as well. I am not sure but I don't think that the engine would have turned over fast enough to start with that amount of fluid in the sump.
All that I can think of, is has the crank case breather got any pipes on it that may have been extended to remove fumes from the bilge.
I'm clutching at straws, please let us know when you find the answer.
Kindest Regards
Marge and Parge

Hi
This used to happen to seagoing vessels.
1. No swan neck in exhaust pipe, a following wind, heavy seas on the stern used to push water up and into the cylinders via exhaust valves. seen boats tied too hard stern on in a large tide and the exhaust outlet was underwater.
2 Exhaust injector is beginning to rust internally and water leaking back into engine as above

Just some more ideas

Roll away the stone.

I also have a bmc1500 and had same problem with engine full of water. Turned out to be a cracked head. 2nd hand head fitted by Boulters, now working fine.

Thanks for posting Lambert, did the cracked head affect the operation of the engine? how much water was in the engine?
