  1. I just dug my Outlander out of The snowbank last weekend (yes we're just in the transition from Skidoo to ATV Season) I did my spring once over and changed the oil a few days ago and noticed there was gas in it. In fact instead of 3L of used oil there was 4.5 L of liquid.... After driving for a few days (maybe only 10 - 20 km) I rechecked my oil and it smells like there is some gas in it again. Any suggestions on where to begin my trouble shooting? Thank you Jeff
  2. I thank everyone for their thoughts and suggestions. Here is what I discovered. Yes there is some water in the gas... but not enough to cause problems.... Turns out that even though BRP suggests using NGK spark plugs... THEY DON"T WORK!!! I was able to finally find a Champion plug that fits and my baby fired up first try - with no choke - for the first time in the three years that I had it... was just out cruising on the sea ice for a few hrs and she's running perfect in the -15deg Celcius temperature... now I just need the snow to melt so I can get out for a real ride... again... thaks for the suggestions...
  3. I live in Arviat, Nunavut in the Canadian Arctic. My baby is a 2007 Outlander MAX 400. Can't wait for the snow to melt so I can head out on the Tundra and see ho wmuddy I can get...
  4. I have a 2007 Outlander MAX XT. I had a major problems getting it started this spring. I went through three spark plugs before I went more then 18km. When it starts I don't have any power for about 0.1km and it will often stall. Once it gets going it runs fine (went for a short 30km run last weekend with no problems). Last night it started fine but then cut out after less then 2 minutes while letting it warm up (currently -15 deg celcius -27 with wind chill) This morning it wouldn't start at all. There are a number of Outlanders here in town which all seem to be working fine but they are all older models. Could this just be because it is so cold? Or are there some other test I should do to help diagnose this problem? Thank you
