VIDEO: RANGER XP 1000 and RANGER CREW XP 1000 Oil Change

Required tools

When changing the oil on your Polaris RANGER XP 1000 or RANGER CREW XP 1000, always wear safety glasses and nitrile gloves. Always check and change the oil at the intervals outlined in the Periodic Maintenance Chart in your Owner's Manual. Access the oil dipstick and oil fill cap by tilting the rear cargo box. The crankcase drain plug is located on the bottom of the crankcase. Access the drain plug through the skid plate access hole located directly under the crankcase.

The PS-4 Full Synthetic PS-4 Oil Change Kit is part number 2879323. The Extreme Duty Oil Change Kit is part number 2879324.

Crank case

To change the engine oil and filter:

1. Position the vehicle on a level surface and place the transmission in PARK.

2. Stop the engine and allow it to cool down.

3. Clean the area around the crankcase drain plug. Use caution when performing this procedure. Do not allow hot engine oil to come into contact with skin, as serious burns may result.

4. Place a drain pan under the engine crankcase and remove the drain plug with a 6mm Allen socket. Allow the oil to drain completely.

5. Remove all cargo from the cargo box. Always remove all cargo from the cargo box before lifting the box to access the engine. 

6. Pull up on the cargo box release lever to tilt the box.

7. Using the 2.5-inch (64mm) oil filter wrench, turn the oil filter (2) counter-clockwise to remove it.

8. Using a clean dry cloth, clean the filter sealing surface on the engine crankcase.

9. Lubricate the O-ring on the new oil filter with a film of fresh engine oil. Check to make sure the O-ring is in good condition. Install it to specification. Turn the oil filter until the filter O-ring contacts the sealing surface and then turn an additional 3/4 turn. The oil filter is part number 2540086. Both oil change kits include the filter. 

10. Replace the sealing washer on the drain plug. The sealing surface on the drain plug should be clean and free of burrs, nicks or scratches. The sealing washer is part number 5812232.

11. Reinstall the engine crankcase drain plug with the 6mm Allen socket. Torque the drain plug to 12 ft-lbs (16 Nm).

12. Remove the oil fill cap. Fill the engine with the recommended engine oil. The oil capacity is 2.5 quarts (2.4 liters).

13. Verify the transmission is still in PARK.

14. Start the engine and allow it to idle for 30 seconds.

15. Stop the engine and inspect it for oil leaks. Wait at least 15 seconds before removing the dipstick.

16. Unlock the dipstick lever. Remove the dipstick and wipe it dry with a clean cloth.

17. Reinstall the dipstick and push it into place. Do not lock the dipstick. Make certain the dipstick is inserted all the way into the dipstick tube to keep the depth of the dipstick consistent.

18. Remove the dipstick and check the oil level.

19. Add the recommended oil as necessary to bring the oil level within the SAFE range on the dipstick. Do not overfill.

20. When finished, reinstall the oil fill cap, oil dipstick and lock the lever.

21. Dispose of used oil and filter properly.
