    It doesn’t take but a drop or two to make a rainbow. Does it look mostly like water?

    Yeah it is thank you but this just doesn't seem ordinary as there is nothing in the engine bay

    When I throw my ski on a trailer, often I will fill the hull with about 10 inches of water and toss a bunch of degreaser and dawn to thrash around and clean the ski while driving. Will include bleach if i have mold, but i clean my rentals by hand way too much for any mold. Usually this is with customers skis.

    Clean the frig out of it. and then see if it comes back. Then we can keep guessing.

    I personally grease every hose clamp, grease the oil filter and then I spray my engines with a proper coat of wd40 every week. This might keep a little sheen in my hull but nothing really noticeable
