9 posts in this topic

This is my first UTV, and it is getting too hot to drive. It is a Polaris Ranger 700XP and doesn't take long before it gets hot. I wore sandals while driving it the other day and my foot was extremely hot and uncomfortable. Feels like the motor isn't getting cooled off. Any suggestions... I need help so I can enjoy my toy.

That's a liquid cooled motor. Is there a temperature gauge or light on that? Liquid cooled motors usually run a thermostat. Is this machine new? What year? Under warranty?

Sounds like a thermostat to me.

Here is the way to test it. Remove it from your quad and drop it in a pan of boiling water. It should open instantly.

It is a 2009 Polaris Ranger 700 XP, and still under warranty. It is has around 56 hours on it. It has always put out a lot of heat. It feels like the fan kicks in and blows all the heat on your feet. I have not got to enjoy this machine, because it this. One relply said to put the thermostat in boiling water to open it up, I hope that will help. Thanks for your input.

Have you driven it in dusty, muddy or deep water (deep as the tires are high)? Try putting a small throw rug where your feet go see if that helps.Heat rises floor board catches all the heat. In there quest to make the engine quieter, they made an engine compartment that hold more heat.
