Iíve got a 01 RMK 800. On the last ride last season the temp light came on and the engine started running rough. I figured this was due to the fact that it was a beautiful 50 degree sunny day in the Alaska range (I donít have scratchers). I managed back to truck, stopping as necessary to cool down and packing snow on the running boards to cool things down.
The next evening at home after work I went to unload the sleds and park them in their summer spot. Right off the bat the temp light came on and the engine barely ran. The thing was stone cold so I know it was not really over heating. Anyway, I got it into its summer spot with the intention of looking at it before now.
Well, it is now and yesterday I started it up to move it. Same problem. Sitting all summer didnít seem to magically cure the problem.
Any suggestions on what to look for first? It has coolant. Could the temp sensor be the problem? I unplugged it while the engine was running (mostly cause it was easy enough to do) but that didnít make any difference.
