When was the last time you did some snowmobile maintenance? In this post by Advanced Filtration Technologies in Williston, ND, we’ll go over a few steps you shouldn’t skip to start this snow season with the right foot.

Read Your Owner’s Manual

When deciding to do snowmobile maintenance, it’s essential to check your owner’s manual to ensure that you’re following best practices set by the manufacturer. In there, you’ll find information specific to your snowmobile’s make and model, as well as instructions by your manufacturer to best take care of it.

Fluid Maintenance

Drain and Replace Old Fuel

An important step when storing equipment and vehicles that require fuel to work is using a fuel stabilizer (like AMSOIL’s Gasoline Stabilizer) in the tank before storage. The reason is that humidity and oxygen degrade fuel over time, rendering it useless. This also applies to the fuel inside your snowmobile’s tank. If you didn’t put a fuel stabilizer in your snowmobile’s tank last year before storing it, you’ll need to drain it out and replace it with fresh fuel.

Change Engine Oil

Another essential step in your snowmobile’s fluid maintenance is to replace the engine oil. Snowmobiles need to be adequately maintained to perform at their best, and replacing the oil ensures it will do just that by being lubricated enough. Not changing the oil or not having enough oil in the engine could cause it to malfunction, wear down key components, and in the worst case, malfunction during one of your rides.

Check Other Important Fluids

Your engine relies on many other fluids to work and that you should check as part of your snowmobile maintenance routine. These are the coolant, the chaincase oil, the brake fluid, and the injection oil. All of these play an essential role in the functioning of your snowmobile, and you should pay close attention to them. To learn how to maintain them best, consult your owner’s manual.

Using excellent products like AMSOIL’s Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil is an essential part of snowmobile maintenance. Call Advanced Filtration Technologies, Inc. at (701) 572- 3780 for advice on what products to use in your snowmobile, or shop their online selection 24/7.

Clean and Inspect Your Components

Inspect the Components

All of the components on your snowmobile work together for you to have a thrilling experience while riding it, which makes it a complex vehicle that needs maintenance to perform well. Components like its filters, skies, shocks, spark plugs, belt, tracks, clutch, and others need to be checked regularly to ensure they’re in good shape and ready for your next ride.

Give it a Good Scrub Down

Another essential step in maintaining your snowmobile in good shape is to give it a good clean. At this point, your snowmobile has probably been in storage for a good part of the year, and even if it’s well covered, it’s probably been gathering dust and grime that could prevent it from performing well. Safety tip: Check the exhaust pipe to ensure no small critters made a home while in storage.

Is Your Riding Gear in Good Conditions?

Before leaving for the trails, it’s a good idea to check if your riding gear is still in good condition. Check your goggles, gloves, and, more importantly, your helmet to ensure they’re in the best condition to protect you while riding. Your gear is your most crucial protection layer from obstacles on the trails, and in case of accidents, so it must be in good shape.

Take It to a Pro and Do a Test Drive

Before you take your snowmobile out for the first ride of the season, you should take it to a professional to give it a once-over and ensure that everything is in good condition. Even if you were thorough in your maintenance, there’s always a chance you forgot something. Once you’re done with the expert, take your snowmobile for a short test drive in a safe space to ensure it’s performing as it should. After this, you’re ready to hit the trails and enjoy a snowy season without worrying about damaging your vehicle.
