Ok, I never winterized my ski, but I put a flush kit on it and ran it for about 3minutes at idel/rev (3500rpms) and It spit a shi% load of oil and smoked very bad from the exit muffler. Is this normal??
Also it spit a load **** of oil spots on my **** house and now its a bit$h to clean off.
The last time I started it up was about 1 month ago.
Let me know whats up?
What kind of ski and year model is it? Try some Simple Green for the spots on the house ( do a test area first), it sould help? Regards, Matt Burkhard
Matt, Its brand new its a 2000 Polaris has about 40hrs on it.
It is possible that you Polaris had a fuel leak into the motor either by a jammed needle and seat or from expansion in the fuel tank causing a needle and seat to leak. This will fill the crankcases with gas and when the ski is started unburnt gas will spray out of the exhaust and look very oily as the exhaust will be covered with oily soot inside and the gas will 'wash' the exhaust inside. Just a possibility.

Say IF you are right and I don't fix it, can this do major damage to the engine?
I really think its beceasue the ski has not be started for a while and just it like the residue. Like if you start your vehicle up and its been sitting for months. Well thats what I hope';
if he pickled motor as it sound,then what he has is just oil coming out of system.Allso when storing motor like that after flush (salt water)you can run motor 15 -20 sec. with out cooling water that help get water out of system while fogging oil is cheap-motors are expensive cdpcb
