Can gas or water get in oil if four wheeler sits on end for a hour?


Being a 2012, I am sure it is fuel injected and not carbureted, so I am sure that there would be no fuel in there. I truly doubt that oil would be in there unless this crash was violent enough to crack a block or head. If it were mine, I would check the oil level, if good, start it and run to operating temperature. Then turn it off and let cool to cold, check oil level, as well as check coolant. If the coolant looks lime green(if it uses green coolant) and not chocolate milkshake brown, I would say you are good to go!

Won't start, good battery, lots of spark,good gas, ran one day and not the next.


Hi Sandy:
Hmmmmm.
Something must have happened.
Back to basics.
Pull plugs, check for hot blue spark.
Plugs wet? Fouled?
If dry and spark then no fuel.
Drain/flush carb.
Change fuel filter.
Think of it as entertainment.
Cheers,
Happy New Year.

While riding my oil filter came loose and i lost about half my oil. The bike stopped running but would turn over just fine. I put oil back in it after tighten up my filter but it still wont start,


Have you checked to see if you are getting spark at the plug? Look in your manual to see if there is a low oil pressure safety shut down switch that has to be reset.

Why do I have to keep artic cat half choked to keep running. when I give it gas it spudders and backfires


A couple of suggestions: Make sure that the gasket seal is good between carb and engine. I had a similar problem with my Cat 500 and found that the choke was sticking. I sprayed down the carb with Gunk and made sure all moving parts were not hanging up. I also put anti fogging oil in the gas to help clean jets and ports hard to clean with a carb rebuild.

Why cant anyone answer questions about this hawkeye atv


Have you checked the Spark Plug ? No Spark & No Fuel means not going to start and run. If you are getting fuel then your Spark plug may need to be cleaned or replaced or even re-gaped. Spark plugs have a tendency to get fouled out. Meaning oil gets on it and it can not throw a good spark. If you do have a good spark then check the choke and or the float in the carb.

Thanks for allowing my in-put!
