So this past weekend went out on the boat, had a great weekend! A little to great. Drank so much had a buddy drive the boat back. He said an alarm went off on the dash when we where almost at the launch ramp so he just putted back.

Well cut to today and I notice the bilge is full of water almost to the floor boards!

I pulled all the plugs and couldn't help but notice that floating on top was this milkshake of transmission fluid. Once all the water drains opened both dipsticks on the tranny. Then one closet to the motor the fluid looks fine. But the forward one looks way overfilled and looks like a milkshake!

Needless to say I want to drain it asap and get fresh fluid in!

Problem is I can't find a drain plug?

Is there a drain plug?

Or do I need to pump it out?

Problem two! Why was the bilge full of water? Why wasn't the bilge pump working? Well it appears I have four wires ripped up and wrapped around the driveshaft!

D@MN this sucks!

P.S. Boat is a 2006 Malibu VLX
