If they have shade tree fixed this side of the engine, then the next thing that happens is the seal behind the flywheel will blow. The crankcase pressure has to go somewhere. is the repair shop a Kohler dealer?
it ran all summer with out any issues (except the hydro). so for some reason it only breaks in the cold. right now the forecast looks like mid 40's. we'll see what happens next few snows
