When the Auto-Winterization feature is activated, the EMM rapidly cycles the oil injector to "fogs" the engine. When the winterize cycle is complete (about 1 minute), it will automatically shut the engine off. Once the engine has turned off, turn off the key switch (if equipped), remove the engine from the water or from the flushing device and allow the water to drain from the engine. Your Evinrude E-TEC is ready to be placed into storage. The only additional item we recommend is to remove the propeller and inspect the propshaft and seal to ensure there is no fishing line wrapped around it.
