ANTIFREEZE LEAKING
« on: May 25, 2017, 04:45:11 PM »
I just performed my 1st oil change in my UFORCE 800 and I noticed antifreeze under the SXS, I found a small tube that wasn't connected to anything and couldn't see where it should have connected to. Any ideas?

Been over this many times before. Its the weep tube off the water pump shaft...many CFM pump mechanical seals leak for a few hundred miles. If it doesn't stop it will have to be replaced. In the meantime keep the radiator and recovery bottle full.

Yes, it is the water pump's mechanical seal that's leaking. Some have also found that when a different coolant is added, like Prestone or Peak, the leak stops. That happened to me and because some of the older CFM coolants were jelling, I decided to change mine out completely.
