Polaris Ranger .. Oil Leak..

Print Post  
Have a 2012 Polaris Ranger side by side Petrol. Have 2 stroke oil dripping out of a small short rubber drain hose under the bottom of the motor. Eventually drains most of the 2 stroke oil tank. Anyone have any ideas what the problem is ????????
Cheers

Not much knowledge of a two stroke engine.
I'd guess either the hose has broken/come free of where it's ment to go... maybe the tank.
Or has a loose drain plug which would be odd in a dry sump motor.
Or the oil injecter is leaking and it has some sort of drainage system to prevent engine damage.
Some oil injection systems are prone to pump failure, if it's mechanical it maybe leaking from there into the block or out a drain hose.
Is it smokey?
I'd suggest downloading a manual and having a read.

Mmm drain hose from the filter housing?
