1jz first start up problem

Recommended Posts

So I just started my motor for the first time today and it idled fine for a second before it started spewing a rust brown oily liquid from the turbo outlet pipe and I shut it off

 

Im assuming its water from when somebody pressure washed the motor before I got it but Im not sure.... there wasnt really a smell like i said it was oily to the touch and I decided not to taste it lol before start up the outlet pipe did have a tiny bit of black oily soot in it but nothing extreme.

 

Could it be coolant?

Is it just oil and my turbo is fucked?

Am I an idiot and its something else?

 

 

I searched around and nobody has ever talked about this happening I'm hoping its not a big deal and I just need to get it to cough it all up let me know what you guys think.

the dudes in jp will sometimes put oil in the comp housing to keep them fresh. How long you run it?

Try it again and keep it running. could just be clearing shit out from sitting. I doubt if theres an issue that running it for 10-15 mins and keeping an eye on fluids/temps/etc that it would hurt anything anymore.

Sounds like it could be rusty condensation from it sitting for so long.
