That my friend is a base head gasket leak. I'd replace that and if the problem still exists then your cylinder surface is warped or cracked. When you pull the head off inspect it closely

I also assume your having power issues as well.

can i ruin anything by lightly driving it and
 
does the engine have to come out for this
 
ill get the pdf
Depends on the compression. You could lose alot of oil if it runs for lengthy amount of time. Could overheat. Many things can happen but to catch it early enough is key. The engine can stay. The head is 8 or more bolts. Comes off easily.

      Does anyone know how to access the check engine codes on a 2018 450 sportsman. Just changed battery and spark plug . It runs fine but the light is on and I need this to plow snow and need it reliable. Any ideas . Thanks

      Trying to replace the carburetor on my 2003 Bear Tracker 250. Two brand new carbs in a row from different suppliers.   Both leak fuel out over flow and intake as soon as I turn the gas on. Any ideas. Am I doing something wrong?

      Hi, I’m a 16 year old that is wanting to get more into vehicle and mechanic repair. My dad has an old ‘96 Timberwolf that he doesn’t remember running since I was born. I want to get it running again as a memory for him and to help us be able to hunt together, and of course so I can learn how engines work more than the little information I know now. I’ve pulled the carburetor and gas tank off of it, and the carburetor is getting cleaned by a friend. I can post photos of the condition it’s in later, I’m just curious where I should start in my journey to get it running again. The power switch is broken off of the handlebar, so I am looking into fixing it, along with the pull cord. I’m afraid the engine is seized up, and I’m curious to hear any input anyone has. Thank you all.
