What to look out for when buying Polaris Sportsman Oil Change/Fluids/Filters?

Automotive technicians recommend constantly changing your engine oils, filters, and fluids. These simple yet essential tasks ensure your engine runs smoothly and has a chance to live long. See our buying guide below. 

Buy only manufacturer-recommended oils, fluids, and filters.

The correct lubricants are a must-use if you intend to keep your engine running like new. Always stick with your model's manufacturer-recommended oils, fluids, and filters. This will help ensure the engine components don't wear down prematurely due to incorrect oil levels or substandard filter materials.

Check the filters regularly. 

The air and oil filters are also necessary items to inspect regularly. They should be changed often because dirt and dust can get into the engine and damage its components. Clogged oil filters can restrict oil flow to vital engine components and cause sludge buildup and damage.

Replace the fluids whenever necessary.

Your Polaris Sportsman also requires regular fluid replacements. Depending on the type of terrain you operate in or how often you ride it every few months. Change most of the fluids at the same time if possible. Also, get a fluid/oil change tool kit to make it easy.

Can I use car oil in my Polaris Sportsman?

No, you should never use car oil in your Polaris Sportsman. The engine is designed to operate with certain levels of viscosity and specific types of lubricants. Using the wrong engine oil in your Polaris Sportsman can result in engine malfunction or outright damage. As mentioned earlier, ensure only to use the manufacturer-recommended oils in your Polaris Sportsman.

Can I put full synthetic oil in my Polaris Sportsman?

You can use full synthetic oil in your Polaris Sportsman if stated in your Sportsman's manual. Full synthetic oils have superior lubricating properties, ensuring your engine runs smoothly and efficiently. However, this also means it must be changed more often than conventional oils. Follow the manufacturer guidelines on using full synthetic oil for your Polaris Sportsman model.
