With fall season leaving and winter approaching, we shift from our land and water and recreational vehicles to our snowmobiles. The snowmobile is calling you! You put it from the shed, start the engine and nothing happens.
Do you know that due to adverse winter conditions, snowmobiles need maintenance more frequently than any other type of recreational vehicle? With that in mind, let us troubleshoot and check what’s wrong with your snowmobile gas can racks. Remember that the construction of snowmobiles will vary, so you should go through your owner’s manual before troubleshooting. The owner’s manual will offer a layout of the engine of the snowmobile and where to get all these components.
Is the stop switch of the engine right now in the off position? The “Engine stop” switch is situated on the control panel of the snowmobile port tack rack. You have to double check to ensure that the switch is not turned in the off position. The “Engine stop” switch can prevent the motor from starting.
Is there gas left in the cheetah factory racing fuel tank since last winter? Next you should test the fuel tank. Gasoline may degrade over time. This may lead to various issues, rough running, hard starting or not starting at all. Gasoline has highly volatile components that have a tendency to evaporate over time. The less volatile components in the fuel can make the gasoline to burn less efficiently. The outcome is poor engine performance. In other words, your engine might still start and run, but it will possibly not run also. Not only will the gasoline degrade with the passage of time when a snowmobile sits idle for long periods of time without a protective snowmobile as condensation and snowmobile cover water may enter the gas tank. Water, obviously, doesn’t work too well as a fuel in the internal combustion engine of a snowmobile. It may cause hard starting and prevent smooth running until it runs through the engine. Water may also contribute to internal depreciation of the tank and the gas lines.
How can you predict that the gas is old? You may check your old gas against gasoline that you know is fresh by putting both in clear gas containers and collating their color. Oxidized fuel frequently darker over time! It might even have a sour smell. If the old gas is darker than the fresh gas, then your gas is not in a good condition. If you leave gas in your snowmobile gas can racks for more than 6 months, then you have to add a stabilizer to the fuel system so it will preserve the gasoline and keep it from getting spoiled over time. It is possibly a great idea to drain your fuel system at the end of winter before storing the snowmobile for the summer.
