Run it on the hose to get stuff warm then change oil , filter and drive oil. Restart after changes the run antifreeze thru it and near the end of the antifreeze (if it's carbed) fog it.
You want to get the contaninents out before storage.

Run it during the winter and you don't need to worry about it.
