MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES

Radiator Cleaning

Remove as much debris as you can

with your hands. If water is available in

proximity, try rinsing the radiating fins.

If available, use a garden hose to rinse

the radiating fins.

CAUTION Never clean radiator

with your hands when it is hot. Let

the radiator cool down before clean-

ing.

NOTICE

Be careful not to damage

the radiating fins when cleaning. Do

not use any object/tool that could

damage the fins. The fins are pur-

posely thin to allow efficient cooling.

WHEN HOSING, USE LOW PRES-

SURE ONLY. NEVER USE A HIGH

PRESSURE WASHER.

If engine is overheating even with

a clean radiator, see an authorized

Can-Am dealer.

Engine Coolant

Recommended Engine Coolant

Always use ethylene-glycol antifreeze

containing corrosion inhibitors specif-

ically formulated for internal combus-

tion aluminum engines.

Cooling system must be filled with

BRP PREMIXED COOLANT (P/N 219

700 362) or with distilled water and

antifreeze solution (50% water, 50%

antifreeze).

Engine Coolant Level

Coolant reservoir is located under the

RH front fender.

______________

94

WARNING

Check coolant level with engine

cold. Never add coolant in cooling

system when engine is hot.

NOTICE

Do not operate vehicle

with low coolant level. Overheating

could occur causing extensive en-

gine damage.

vmo2006-014-022_a

COOLANT LEVEL

With vehicle on a level surface, coolant

should be between MIN. and MAX.

level marks of coolant reservoir.

NOTE: When checking coolant level at

a temperature lower than 20°C, it may

be slightly lower than MIN. mark.

To gain access to coolant reservoir, re-

move front fender access cover.

Pull up on rear portion of cover to re-

move tabs from rubber grommets.

Pull cover forward, then up to release

lower tabs from front fender.

How to Keep Your ATV from Overheating

How to Keep Your ATV from Overheating

When you want to hit the trail, there is a lot of prep work to be done before your all-terrain vehicle is ready to venture deep into the wilderness. Most riders have a checklist of chores to do before taking their ATVs for a ride, not to mention a number of accessories to pack. In all the chaos and excitement of getting your ATV ready, you might easily forget to inspect your engine’s cooling system. From California to Florida, the heat can be sweltering and may even put an ATV at risk of overheating. Luckily, a little preparation can help you from running into any heat-related trouble on the trail.

How to Keep Your ATV From Overheating

There are two things you must inspect to see whether the cooling system of your ATV’s engine is in good enough shape to ride: the radiator and the coolant. As the largest cooling component in your engine, it is important to inspect and clean your radiator on a regular basis. After all, radiators can become clogged with dirt, grass, mud, and other debris while you’re exploring an untamed landscape. When a radiator becomes soiled, it loses its ability to keep the fluid cool and becomes less efficient as a result. If a radiator becomes obstructed, it may not even run at all. That’s precisely why you have to take the time to inspect your radiator before you ride. Make sure the radiator is clean and free of debris. You must also make sure the coolant doesn’t need to be replaced. Radiator fluid, also known as coolant, should be changed every two years or as needed to prevent corrosion. You should check your coolant at least once per month and check its condition using a coolant tester. If the fluid needs to be replaced, it can be done in less than an hour!

  1. Remove the drain bolt and the cap. Double check the owner’s manual to confirm the exact location, but both the drain bolt and cap are typically located at the bottom of the radiator. To prevent slips, trips, falls, and other hazards, simply place a drip pan under the drain to catch draining fluid.

  2. Remove the water pump’s air bleeder bolt and place a drip pan under the pump to catch draining fluid. As with all automotive fluids, coolant must the disposed of properly at a recycling plant or your local landfill. You should not dispose of used coolant in the home garbage, down the drain, or in the backyard.

  3. Screw in the air bleeder bolt back to the water pump and the drain bolt to the radiator. Fill the radiator with water, remove the bolts again, and let the water drain. Repeat this process until the water draining from the radiator is completely clean.

  4. Pre-mix the radiator fluid with distilled water, a 50:50 mixture. If needed, you can also add antifreeze or an additive that doubles the wetting ability of water. You should always refer to the owner’s manual to check for correct ratios depending on the climate where you ride your ATV most often. Every kind of ATV will have different specifications.

  5. Place a funnel in the coolant tank and pour the coolant-water mixture into the funnel. There will be lines on the side of the tank indicating the correct level to pour. Replace both caps and the rubber gasket once the tank is filled.

Many things can happen to your machine in the spring and summer, but overheating doesn’t have to be one of them. Whether exploring potential hunt locations or completing your daily chores, it is important to keep your engine cool and running smoothly. If problems persist, you may have a damaged radiator or a bad water pump on your hands. Don’t take off for a ride if you know the coolant level is low, which will almost always spell trouble.

    Be careful not to mix different color/types of anti freeze, it will coagulate and do a lot of damage. if you are replacing the coolant be sure to flush the radiator and all lines at least three times with clear water. if you are just adding some, use the BRP type that is in there now.

    If you stick with the BRP brand, (and i recommend it) be sure that it is the same color as the coolant that is currently in your spyder.

    What aftermarket make can be added to the 1330 orange/red stuff? I'm not sure that just any "orange/red" will do and don't want to get into situation where I have to have it all drained and flushed.

    To top it off with a small amount, just add distilled water.

    I have plans to drain and flush ours from the 14 RTs.

    Plan to use USA made Peak brand and this is the stuff with distilled water.

    Wanted to add, the color of the Peak anti freeze I mentioned is Flourescent Yellow. Not pink nor green and if a leak does occur should be visible with a black light.

HOW-TO CHANGE FROM STANDARD ANTIFREEZE TO ENGINE ICE

— We think it was Yoda who said, “With big horsepower comes big responsibility.” Most 1000cc high performance UTVs are, on average, pumping more than 100 horsepower at the crank. The four-stroke engines of today are very intricate, and every little bit of protection that can help that engine survive for years to come is crucial. One thing that damages engines is extreme temperatures.

Luckily, there are companies out there like Engine Ice that make an improved coolant. Engine Ice is a high-performance coolant that is biodegradable, phosphate-free, non-toxic and typically reduces operating temperatures. It effectively keeps the boil-over temperatures to 256 degrees Fahrenheit or less and offers freeze-up protection to -26 degrees Fahrenheit on those cold winter days. Engine Ice works best when you empty your UTV’s entire standard coolant to use Engine Ice. It is never recommended to mix any coolants and Engine Ice is no exception. Our Can-Am X3 needed a new radiator fan, so we decided to add the protection of Engine Ice while we were at it.

You can purchase Engine Ice in 64-ounce bottles for $23.95, or you can go big and buy the 5-gallon canister for $188.95. But unless you have multiple machines, that’s a bit of overkill. The Can-Am Maverick X3 Turbo R models require around two and a half 64-ounce bottles.

First things first, we had to drain the OEM coolant out of the X3, and there is no way to do it other than pulling the lower coolant line on the right-hand side of the radiator. We used a pair of pliers to release the pressure on the hose clamp and slid it out of the way. Be sure to have your catch bucket ready, because once you pull the line, it might as well be a “coolant grenade.” It will take a few minutes to completely drain. After that, for best performance, Engine Ice suggest that you flush the system with a 50/50 mix of water and vinegar, which is a good formula for any coolant flush. We reinstalled the coolant line, filled the system with the water/vinegar solution, ran the engine until it was hot, turned it off to cool, pulled the coolant line again, and then ran clear water through to rinse out the vinegar.

Then we reinstalled the coolant line and secured it by moving the hose clamp back into the correct position on the hose.

On the X3 models, the coolant reservoir is in the bed of the machine under a plastic cover that is removable without tools. We removed that cover to access the reservoir.

The reservoir is where the coolant is added and where we added the vinegar/water solution. We made sure the machine was completely cool before removing the radiator cap. We then added the correct amount of coolant until it showed up on the “cool fill line” and reinstalled the radiator cap. Any time you change the coolant on the machine, the system must run the coolant through the engine. We started the X3 until it got warm. We did this several times, adding the Engine Ice as we went when it would cool down. Most systems will take around 5–-10 minutes to circulate the coolant through the radiator and engine. During that time, just let the machine idle. Revving it could damage the engine. Once it was full, we reinstalled the plastic cover. It’s as simple as that.
