Top 3 Reasons Why Your Snowmobile Won’t Start After Summer

 In snowmobile repair

Once summer is over and you try to start up your snowmobile at the beginning of the season it may not start, generally there are three main reasons why. Of course it’s always a bummer when your grown-up toys break, especially ones that have motors like snowmobiles. Sometimes it’s an easy fix. The top three reasons why your snowmobile won’t start after the summer season is over are:

  1. Fouled spark plug – They just get plugged up sometimes and need to be changed.
  2. Fuel Quality – Fuel tends to degrade in quality when it sits around during the off-season. You can use fuel stabilizers but it’s recommended that you drain fuel at the end of snowmobiling season and start off with fresh fuel at the beginning of the season instead.
  3. Oil – Just like in your car the oil needs to be checked regularly.

If you have checked all of these possibilities for your snowmobile it’s most likely that there is something else wrong with your machine. The best option now is to take it in.
