Engine Oil Level
The RANGER RZR XP engine has a dry-sump design,
meaning the engine oil is contained within a remote oil
tank. To check oil level follow the procedure listed below:
IMPORTANT: Always check the oil level when the
engine is cold. If the engine is hot when the oil level is
checked, the level will appear to be overfull.
Access the oil tank dipstick through the oil tank access
panel located in the left front corner of the cargo box.
