If it is what I think it is, drain the whole motor. Oil, coolant, fuel, all of it take the plugs out and once the motor is clean, dry fire the motor (turn the key or use the pull cord) without the plugs in and that should get most of the water out of the cylinders.

Go through the electrical system and check for shorts, bad fuses and your battery, if there is one, should be changed

Spitting water out of the over flow tube

check the cap itself cause most models the cap is made to open and let out some steam , if the cap has got mud over it give it a good clean with a wire brush then soak it in some boiling water for a few mins and then put it back on and see if it solves your problem if not you might need a new one , if you know someone with the same atv try their cap on yours for a few mins and see if it solves the problem so you can determine if it is the cap or not without having to fork out for a new one

Submerged atv will not shift

You most likely have a wet clutch. Do an oil change! Is it all murky and grey? You need to flush system thoroughly. Buy atleast 3 or 4 oil filters and grab some oil. Get it warm and change oil. Rinse and repeat 3 times. Take for short ride rinse and repeat till oil is clean. Most filters are washable so can be reused. Hope for the best. Mine has been swamped 4 times so far but runs like a champ. Either buy or make a snorkel kit and have fun

My atv bogs when in water

The reason this happens is because you get water and mud into your air. Intake,air cleaner,and Carb I suggest checking and cleaning all of them and if you do this often you could try to route your air intake up and out so it is above the machine and put a small easy detachable filter over the end

ATV in Pond!

Water was sucking into engine. Pull spark plug, drain oil, air filter. Replace new oil, new air filter, clean and dry plug. Before putting in spark plug turn motor over to blow out cylinder. Dry everything electronic, should dry just by sitting, then start up. If battery lost charge, recharge it.

Atv in water

there should be a drain plug on the bottom of your air intake box, pull it off and drain all of the water.also take off the carborator, dismantle it and clean it out make sure ur jets aren't blocked. if the water went into your exaust than drain your oil and blow it out with an air compresser make sure that u open the oil plug on the top. you should also put a little bit of oil in it and than drain it until theres no more water in it.

I hope this helps if not tell me.

Water build up in the starter & Reqoil case of my Polaris ATV

Your drain plugs should be visable, if they exist, on the lowest point of the body of the device. If you can't readily see them, consider drying out the entire unit with a hair dryer and a little patience in drying the entire unit. From then on, I would consider evaluating the depth of water before entering. After all, the unit may not be amphibious, which sounds like your intended use!
Also, the battery may be affected by the extreme cold, as they often are, leaving a different approach to this problem. Good Luck!
