I bought 2 09 MXZ 600 ETECs in the fall. One is an Adrenaline with 4400 miles and the other is an X with 2400 miles. I am just getting back into snowmobiling after about 10 years. Due to the slow start to the Northeast season, I've only ridden the Adrenaline around the yard a few times, maybe 3-5 miles total and the X 20-30 miles total on the trail. Both sleds start up, idle, and run with no apparent issues. I had some time to poke around today so I replaced both sleds' belts with the spares that appear to be brand new. In process of doing so, I noticed that the coolant reservoir on the Adrenaline is bone dry empty and the level on the X is quite low, as pictured. There is a line about 3/4 up the tank that says "Cold Level" and I assume the coolant should be filled to that line. My question is, wouldn't I notice significant issues operating the sleds with little or no coolant? Or even a check engine light right away? Possible enough coolant in the system already that it's not pulling from the tank? I'm not sure how I didn't notice this before but it worries me. Sleds have been in an enclosed trailer for most of the time that I've had them and there is no coolant on the ground. Thank you for your help.
