ENGINE OIL LEVEL INSPECTION
Inspection steps: • Place the snowmobile on a level surface and apply the parking brake. • Start the engine, warm it up for 10 ~ 15 minutes, and then turn off. • Disconnect the oil level switch coupler 1.
CAUTION: Disconnect the oil level switch coupler before removing the oil level gauge. Otherwise the lead can twist and become severed.
• Remove the oil level gauge/dipstick 2, wipe it clean, insert it back into the filler hole (without screwing it in), and then remove it again to check the oil level. • The engine oil level should be between the maximum level mark a and minimum level mark b. Below the minimum level mark → Add the recommended engine oil to the proper level.
CAUTION: When adding the engine oil, be careful not to fill above the maximum level mark and minimum level mark on the oil level gauge. Recommended oil: Refer to the chart for the engine oil grade which is best suited for certain atmospheric temperatures. API standard: API SE, SF, SG or higher SAE 0W-30
CAUTION: Do not allow foreign materials to enter the crankcase.
NOTE: Before checking the engine oil level, wait a few minutes until the oil has settled. • Start the engine, warm it up for several minutes, and then turn it off.
