What is this fluid?

Recommended Posts

I just finished a total rebuild for my 08 200xc. I had it sitting there running to break it in.

 

I notice this grayish fluid coming from the exhaust control hose.

I think it is the LPS spray lubricant I used when putting it back together.

Or is it antifreeze mixed with oil?

Likely not gear oil if it's coming from the power valve drain.

The water pump seal failed. I guess when oil coolant get mix up thats what it looks like.

I had to change the oil half a dozen times to get rid of it.

That would have been my guess. Glad you found it and fixed it before more damage.
