HOW TO CHANGE THE OIL TO A QUAD

If you have a quad, you will have to change the oil at some point so that it can continue to function properly. ¿Pero qué pasa si no eres experto en mantenimiento de ATV? Fortunately, this task is quite simple. It is very similar to changing the oil in a car, but even easier, so you should be able to do it yourself. Just Consider These One Block Oil Change Steps Before You Begin.

GET THE SUPPLIES YOU NEED TO CHANGE THE OIL IN YOUR QUAD

The first question you may have is how often you need to change the oil. The answer is that it depends on your ATV. Usually, you're supposed to do an ATV oil change every 100 Hours of use, or at least once a year. But be sure to check your owner's manual to find out what it says about your specific ATV.. While reading the manual, take note of what type of oil and filter to use, and buy them. Using the correct oil change supplies is important if you want to keep your vehicle running properly., so don't just make assumptions about what to buy. Let your owner's manual guide you through this decision.

GET ACCESS TO THE DRAIN PLUG

Now that you have the supplies you need, start your stable motor and let it run for about ten minutes. This heats the oil to make it drain out more easily.. Then, consult the owner's manual to find out which panels you need to remove in order to access the oil filter. You will probably have to remove the seat first, and then have to pull a latch to untie the nearby tabs. For most ATVs, you will also need to release the panel on the right side of the vehicle, which will reveal a cover that has bolts that you will also need to remove. After removing the cover, you will see the oil filter and the dipstick. Pull out the dipstick and clean around to reduce the chance of sand and dirt ending up in the engine. Then, check the owner's manual to find out where the drain plug is.

DRAIN OLD OIL

Once you find the drain plug, which should be at the bottom of the engine, check skid plate to make sure hole is clear before starting to drain old oil. Then put a drain pan underneath. Your next step in changing your block's oil should be to loosen the drain plug with a socket., and then allow the old oil to drip into the pan underneath. After all the old oil is gone, you can remove the filter.

ADD NEW OIL

You can now replace the drain plug, making sure not to overtighten it during this step. Take the new oil filter and put a little oil on the o-ring, and then screw it on by hand, using a wrench to fully tighten it, but not too tight. At that point, is ready to add two quarts of new oil, which you can do by placing a funnel on top of the new filter and pouring the oil through it. Once this is done, start the stable motor and let it run for about ten seconds. This will help the fresh oil begin to flow through the engine.. Then check the oil level with the dipstick to determine if you need to add even more oil before finishing the job.. If the level is correct, you are ready to replace the cover, panel and seat.

Stable oil change is only part of maintaining your vehicle before driving.
