Halloween floods. There was noticeably water in the oil and the oil pressure warning light was unplugged.
But it was CHEAP.
I took it home drained the oil flushed the crankcase and replaced the filter.
It's used multiple times every day.

This is opportunity for mechanical people who use common sense and caution.

Yes indeedy, but there's lots of difference between a UTV ...and a car/truck or even modern tractor with a gajillion electronics and computer/black boxes on it.


This is true... However if you don't mind a lil work and maybe some expense you can come out way ahead potentially... Nothing Ventured nothing gained... That being said I would prefer older vehicles or equipment mostly.
