Like every other automobile, your snowmobile needs to be maintained to keep it in great working condition. But snowmobiles don't last forever even when you give your ride the proper maintenance it requires.
That said, you'll need to replace certain pieces of equipment on your snowmobile once you notice they're no longer working or else you put yourself (and your snowmobile) at risk.
The following are some of the most important equipment parts you'll want to replace as soon as you notice something's wrong with them.
Your snowmobile fuel pump
The fuel pump is what pumps fuel into your snowmobile's engine to make it go. A bad fuel pump will cause your snowmobile to lose power when you're driving or may even keep you from turning your snowmobile on at all.
That said, you need to replace your fuel pump as soon as you notice something's wrong. The last thing you want is for your fuel pump to completely die when you're out on the trail.
The gaskets in your snowmobile exhaust system
The exhaust system of your snowmobile is a common place for many issues including broken springs, leaking manifold gaskets, and crumbling mounts. While exhaust system problems aren't likely to cause a breakdown like a bad fuel pump, a leak from the cylinder's exhaust manifold can still make a big mess.
If your snowmobile's cylinders are messy with oil, it's a sign that your manifold needs maintenance and that the hardware attaching the Y-pipe to the cylinder is loose. The gaskets could be shot of your snowmobile is over four years old. Replace them if they're the culprit.
Your snowmobile's chaincase lubricant
Your snowmobile's chaincase delivers power from the jackshaft to the driveshaft. To do this, the chain and sprockets bolted inside need to be coated with oil to keep everything running smoothly.
If your snowmobile's chaincase oil is dirty, it needs to be replaced. Chaincases hold 12 ounces of lubricant and machines with reverse can hold up to 8 ounces more. Replace the oil when necessary to keep it clean and slippery.
