Started up the sled this weekend, after about 4 minutes of running I noticed antifreeze pooling on the floor. The sled was on the stand and the anti-freeze was coming out around the oil drain hole location in the belly pan. Can't see anything obvious. I am not looking forward to stripping this thing down to find the leak. 2009 mxz1200 renegade.

Coolant leaks
By now you or your customers may have experienced,
(or read about on the internet), minor coolant leaks on
2009 models. Be sure to ask your customers if they
have experienced this or have only heard about it. Only
the facts are important. We wrote about this last week,
and here is what we know so far.
a. The leaks only occur while the sleds cool down
in cold weather. This is why they cannot be
detected in the shop or while pressure testing.
Customers may only notice small puddles on
their trailers or parking areas.
b. The leaks typically do not occur while the
engine is running and only minimal coolant loss
is detected.
c. There are no reports of engine overheating or
damage as a result of the "cool-down" leaks.
There are no reports of hoses popping off or
massive leaks.
Although these leaks are a nuisance, keeping the
coolant bottles full may be all that is needed for time
being while we work on a solution. As we stated in the
last "What's News", detecting which clamp may be
leaking can be difficult in your shop and recommend
using a suitable gear type clamp to make the necessary
repairs. Please continue to watch for updates in future
issues of "What's News".
