Oil change

It's about time to service my 1000x. What oil are u running and weight? Also where is the oil filter? Do you have to take the skid off to get to it? Is an oil change easy or a pain in the butt? Thanks in advance!

Don't forget your transmission and diff oil. You should also grease all zerks in the suspension and u-joints.

Oil filter is on the passenger side, towards the front. The enigne oil, front and rear diffs were fairly easy but the trans was a different story. (for me).. I think the owners manual tells you a little about all of it. The problem i had was with the 2wd/4wd actuator, You have to remove the actuator to remove the speed sensor to clean it. Something moved and took forever to get them lined back up. Oh and i used Oem oil for the engine and front diff, The dealership didnt have the gearbox oil and rear diff oil so i used a bel ray 85-120 hypoid oil.

Bought BRP oil (syn BLEND), summer weight, oil filter is cartridge, no need to remove skid plate (some oil will get on the plate and run).
Peice of cake, manual says 2.3 qt (NOT) takes little over 3 qt, check with dipstick, run, then check and top off if needed.
Easy to do.....

I use Mobile 1 synthetic 0-40 in mine all year around. I live in southern AZ so I don't worry about the winter weight. BRP oil is way over priced. I wonder what brand BRP's oil's are? Their mark up is ridiculous.

I have been told Mobil 1 is making the oil for BRP.
