Question about ATVs
Engine smoking after 10 to 20 of driving owner said top of engine was just rebuilt but engine still smoking
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi, if there is smoke 10-20 minutes that is fine, probably just residual oil from the top engine work.
if the smoke is a hour coming off the engine because of external oil leak, sounds like head gasket is leaking. If you continue to run the machine like this, make sure to always check oil levels and add oil when low. As long as your smoke is not coming out the tail pipe which would mean you are burning oil and would need to be fixed.
side note: Its always good to have a Haynes manual for any machine you own, they have great troubleshooting tips.
