went riding down at the creek today we haven't had rain for awhile so it was shallow for the most part went around a hole i thought was deep and on way back i tried to go threw it well i got into it and tried to back up my muffler was under and it died i seen air bubbles coming out well that's when i started cursing i push it to the road and checked the oil it was clean had the wife tow me home i got on and printed out the instruction on how to fix my prob i picked it up and let the water drain out of the exhaust it smelled like gas but looked like water i pull the plug its dry i open airbox its dry i crank it over with plug out nothing comes out so i put back together and fire it up and bunch of water come out of the exhaust i spoke to my dad witch is a machanic for 20+ yrs and he said not to worry about it but thats kinda hard lol i've road it bout 10 mins stop look at the oil still looks good just a few bubbles small ones but not milky or seperated think it is ok?

I would drain and put fresh oil and oil filter just to be safe, rather pay $50 on an oil change then have something mess up and end up with a costly repair bill.....just my two cents...

u blew the water out the tailpipe . ur good , i had this prob . go run it let the oil get hot if theres any water it will turn milky quickly. bubbles in the oil right after u kill it is normal.

i would change the oil to be safe , but i would do it real soon as if u do have any water in it u dont want to let it set in there and cause any corrosion.

i'm sure it'll be fine to leave the oil change until tomorrow, by the sounds of it no water even got in the oil.
