What Should Enging Break-in Oil Look Like

2 posts in this topic

My 570 was sold to me as new. After trailering it home, I discovered it had 39 miles on it and the break-in oil had not been changed. The dealer gave me a bunch of mumbo jumbo about how the miles might have been put on there but I am concerned about the break-in oil. When I drained it, it was a very light milky brown color (almost like light chocolate milk made with water) and the viscosity seemed like almost zero. Is this normal?

Thanks is advance for any insights.

Yeah, it's not supposed to look that way, usually oil turns that color when the engine was swamped with water...
