Hi there is a wrench symbol displaying on the gauge cluster on my honda foreman 2014 atv what does it mean

That is equivalent to a "Check Engine" light, meaning that a condition exists which requires attention. Check all fluid levels, and readout codes from the ECU as a starting point for diagnosis.

Why does engine stop running and then start after a few minutes

check oil level, there is low oil sensor in case, when stopped all oil runs back down into case this alows it to start then it starts pumping the oil throughout and results in low oil shutting down engine (safety sensor) your probly down a liter or so

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.

My 2003 polaris predator 90cc will start for a few seconds the power sports shop said the oil pump isn't working but it's all still hooked up now when u give it gas it boggs and dies could I be overloading...

Hey Anon, READ this over and over.. then read it again...
First, decide whether you are going to run an oil pump or not. I would recommend NOT running one if you are going to race this ATV.. properly premixed fuel/oil will never fail.. an oil pump can/will/HAS...
Remove and plug/seal all oil passages to and from the oil pump, seal the oil entrance connection to the cylinder with a good gasket sealer -NOT SILICONE - gasoline breaks it down!!
The only jets in a carburetor that ever need replacing, under normal situations, are the needle jet/jet needle combination-these wear out and are replaced as a set! There is no need to "re-jet" an unmodified engine until you get approx. 1000ft above sea level, then dropping the main jet ONE size usually works..(sometimes only raising the jet needle circlip two notches works if the bike isn't ran wide open for long distances).
NOW - - You decided to remove the oil pump - Drain all the gas out of the tank.. have a QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL clean and set the carburetor! Run a premix of QUALITY two-cycle oil at 24:1.. this WILL protect your engine under all/racing conditions!! NEVER- -NEVER try to get your engine running cleaner by reducing your oil mixture!!!! Always use the same oil mixture/ratio - spark plugs are much cheaper than pistons!!!! FIND a great two-cycle engine tuner that can "read a spark plug"....It's hard to find a really good two-cycle tuner than can actually "read" a spark plug....
I can tell if your timing is too advanced or too retarded, if your oil mixture is correct,.. if your jetting is correct.. your combustion chamber area is correct,...ALL by looking at your spark plug!!
.... I see amateur "tuners" and guys that call themselves mechanics try to get a two cycle engine running cleaner by reducing the oil mixture - (adjusting the oil/fuel).. and eventually end up frying the engine.. and they can't figure out why>>???
DO NOT mix more than you are going to use each time!!... (use the left over to kill weeds).. DO NOT put it in your vehicles - IT WILL (burning oil) clog your catalytic convert!!
Have you done any modifications to this engine? If so, then you need to find a qualified pro who knows how to read a spark plug and "jet" the engine accordingly.
... Do you live near North Alabama?.. I could help...
..If you are going to race this ATV, please find a good mechanic/tuner that can help...

MY BEST ADVICE - SUSPENSION TUNING will make her go faster than engine mods!!! (the faster it goes.. the better it MUST handle.. make it handle FIRST!!!
Contact any/all of these folks.. ask for their recommendations...(DO NOT overstate her abilities.. this will only hurt!!)

I have a 2005 Polaris Sportsman 800 EFI and it suddenly started running rough and started smoking. .

If gasoline is left sitting for a while (2-3 months) it attracts water, which could cause the "smoke" and rough running engine.
Unless it is a 2 stroke engine, no oil should be coming out the exhaust. Hold a clean rag or a bunch of paper towels at the exhaust opening BE CAREFUL NOT TO BURN YOURSELF and than check if, whatever the rag or paper towels catch is oily. If it is a 4 stroke engine, and oil is the exhaust fumes, a seal inside the engine is gone and has to be replaced.

Hello Anon..
First, I would check to make sure the carbs are getting fuel, and then fuel getting into the cylinders. Your question about low oil - did you let it get low and then it quit? ...
If you put oil into the cylinders and only got 100psi, this might be your problem. You should be pumping around 120+psi without putting anything into the cylinders... Recheck the compression.= .take out all spark plugs...screw the gauge in until the o-ring seats, hold the throttle wide open while spinning the engine over for about 5 seconds... you should get 120psi +/- 10psi.
If you are getting less than 100psi.. it might be time for a rebuild..

I just bought a 1998 yamaha blaster atv. How much and what kind of oil goes in the gearbox? (the guy i got it from said use plain old 10w-30 oil) Does it use heavy weight gear oil? Transmission fluid?...

Use heavy duty SAE 80W-90 gear oil

Engine oil does work but the oil will not last as long nor will it protect the bearing's/gear's as well as gear oil. Thick dif oil can work to.
Also the gear box is should be sealed.
