2013 150 Etec H/O Oil leakage

Hello,

Been self winterizing the motor every year while boat is in the water since new and usually see extra exhaust smoke when doing so. This past fall when self winterizing I didn't see any extra exhaust smoke but hauled it to storage anyway. Well it got to me so I went back and did another self winterization procedure using a hose to the motor. Everything seemed alright until the end of the process when some oil leaked out (pictures attached are from when I finally picked up the boat out of storage this past weekend). The oil tank was still full and there was not a lot of oil, just what you see in the pics. 

 

Should I be concerned?

 

Thanks, Jeff

Most likely that is from the extra oil from the 2 winterizes that you did.

If the motor is due for a water pump, it may be a good idea to inspect the rubber seals on the exhaust extension tube as they may be leaking from tears, charring, or being dislodged.
