To change the engine oil and filter on your Polaris XPEDITION XP or ADV, follow these steps:
1. Park the vehicle on a flat, level surface in a well-ventilated area, and ensure the transmission is in PARK.
2. Start the engine, allow it to warm up at idle for 2 to 3 minutes and turn it off.
3. On XP models, lift the cargo box lever and tilt the box up. Tip: For maximum clearance, detach the cargo box shock from the base of the box.
4. On ADV models, release the engine access panel fasteners and remove the panel.
5. Carefully clean the area around the oil cap.
6. Remove the oil cap and set it aside.
7. Place a drain pan under the engine crankcase. Tip: Placing a rag in the bottom of the drain pan will help prevent the splashing of oil.
8. Locate the oil drain access hole in the skid plate.
9. Clean the area around the oil drain plug.
10. Remove the drain plug with a 6mm Allen socket, and allow the oil to drain completely.
11. Move to the passenger’s rear wheel well and clean around the oil filter.
12. With a 2.5-inch oil filter wrench, turn the oil filter counterclockwise to remove the filter and allow the oil to drain through the hole in front of the drain plug.
13. Use a clean dry cloth to clean the filter sealing surface on the crankcase and ensure the old O-ring is completely removed.
14. Lubricate the O-ring on the new filter with a film of fresh engine oil, and ensure it is in good condition. A new filter is part number 2540086.
15. Install the new filter and rotate it clockwise by hand until the filter gasket contacts the sealing surface, then turn it an additional three-quarters of a turn.
16. Once the filter is installed, wipe up any residual oil.
17. Clean any dirt or debris from the drain plug, and ensure the sealing surfaces are free of any burrs, nicks or scratches.
18. Remove the old sealing washer, and install a new one on the drain plug. A new sealing washer is part number 5812232.
19. Reinstall the drain plug, and torque to 12 ft-lbs (16 Nm).
20. Clean any residual oil off the vehicle.
21. Add the proper amount of the recommended oil through the oil fill cap. The capacity is 2.5 quarts (2.4 L). Do not overfill. PS-4 5W-50 4-Cycle Oil is part number 2876245 for one gallon.
22. Reinstall the oil fill cap and wipe up any residual oil.
23. Start the engine and allow it to idle for two to three minutes.
24. Stop the engine and wait fifteen seconds to allow the oil to drain back into the crankcase.
25. While waiting, inspect the engine for any leaks.
26. Remove the dipstick and wipe with a clean shop rag. Reinstall the dipstick fully and remove it again to inspect the oil level. Add oil as needed to bring the level to the upper mark on the dipstick.
27. Reinstall the dipstick and wipe up any residual oil.
28. On XP models, continue by pivoting the cargo box down and ensuring the latch is secure.
29. On ADV models, reinstall the cargo box access panel and ensure it is secure.
30. Dispose of the used oil and filter properly at your local recycling center.
31. Grease the grease zerk on the center prop shaft yoke. This can be accessed through a hole in the skid plate.
32. Move to the rear of the vehicle to clean the spark arrestor. Warning: Allow the vehicle to cool completely before performing any spark arrestor maintenance.
33. Remove the spark arrestor fastener and nut with an 8mm socket.
34. Carefully pull the spark arrestor out of the exhaust and clean any debris on the screen.
35. Inspect the screen for wear or damage, and replace if necessary. A new spark arrestor is part number 1263422.
36. Reinstall the spark arrestor into the exhaust and align the mounting hole.
37. Reinstall the spark arrestor nut and fastener. Torque the fastener to 7.3-8.9 ft-lbs (10-12 Nm).
