    Red face GTX 4TEC coolant in engine oil problem

    Hello
    I have just run my 2002 4Tec a few times and noticed emulcified oil coming out of the rubber seal on my oil filter cannister.
    It is a new filter and seal as well.
    There doesnt appear to be any coming from the weep hole that i can see.
    Gotta pump the oil out, flush and re-fill with fresh oil but does anyone have any ideas how the coolant may be getting in the oil?
    Th expansion tank empties quite quickly.
    Regards
    Marty

    How about more info - what's the history with the ski? Did this appear suddenly? Is this the first time out this year, etc.??

    It was the second time out for the ski.
    1st time out there was no problems.
    It was not run hard, just 30 mins of relaxed riding.
    Its a 2002 ski and has always been really good, was always flushed and fluids checked etc.
    It has 86 hours on it but cant tell you much more im afraid.

    I'll bet the first time out it did have a problem, you just didn't realize it.

    I would expect to find freeze damage or something related to winterization/storage. No matter what, if you can't do it yourself you need to take it to a shop for at least partial disassembly looking for a crack or blown head gasket.
