black oil out back
hi...i just started my 97 spx since it was stored last fall.when i started it all of this black oil came pouring out the exhasut port.it cleaned up after a while and of course it was accompanied by tone of smoke. my question is : is this normal? is this just storage oil? or is this bad news? any help or insight is greatly appreciated.

If it has not done it since, I would say it is just normal if you fogged the engine before storage.

no its never done it before.but i bought it in the middle of the summer,so it wasnt stored or anything. i did use a s*** load of storage oil in it,back in the fall.

probably normal, they always do this after storage from the oil.
if it does it again after it sits for a few weeks (without storage oil)
then you might have other problems
