VIDEO: RZR XP Turbo or RZR XP 4 Turbo Oil Change

Required tools

Always change the oil and filter at the intervals outlined in the Periodic Maintenance Chart found in your Owner's Manual. Always wear safety glasses and nitrile gloves when changing your oil and filter. The PS-4 Oil Change Kit is part number 2881696. The Extreme Duty Oil Change Kit is part number 2881697.

To change the oil and filter:

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

2. Allow the engine to cool down before draining the oil.

3. Place a drain pan under the engine crankcase and remove the drain plug (1), using a 6mm Allen socket.

4. Access the oil filter through the driver's side rear wheel well. The engine should be off for at least 2 minutes prior to removing the oil filter.

5. Place shop rags under the filter to catch any oil spilled during removal. Using the oil filter wrench, turn the oil filter counter-clockwise to remove it. Tip the open end of the oil filter up to minimize oil spill.

6. Clean the filter sealing surface on the engine crankcase with a clean rag and ensure the original oil filter O-ring is not stuck to the crankcase. Do not use a hose/pressure washer to clean up spilled oil on a vehicle. This may spread oil into surfaces that may get hot, which may lead to a fire.

7. Lubricate the O-ring on the new oil filter with a film of clean engine oil. Check to make sure the O-ring is in good condition. Turn by hand until the filter O-ring contacts the sealing surface and then turn an additional 3/4 of a turn. The oil filter is part number 2520799. It is included in both oil change kits. 

8. Inspect the sealing washer on the drain plug for burrs or nicks. Replace the washer if it is damaged.

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

10. Remove the cargo box access panel. Add engine oil through the oil fill cap (2) located on top of the engine valve cover.

11. Fill the engine to the recommended specification. The oil capacity of a RZR XP Turbo is 2.75 quarts (2.6 liters). Each oil change kit comes with 3 quarts (2.8 liters) of oil.

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

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

14. Unlock the dipstick lever (3). Remove the dipstick and wipe it dry with a clean rag.

15. Reinstall the dipstick to fully seat it. Do not lock the dipstick. Make certain the dipstick is inserted all the way down to ensure an accurate reading.

16. Remove the dipstick and check the oil level.

17. Add the recommended oil as necessary to bring the oil level within the SAFE range (between the holes) on the dipstick. Do NOT overfill. A rising oil level between checks during cold weather operation can indicate contaminants such as gas or moisture collecting in the crankcase. If the oil level is over the upper mark, change the oil immediately.

18. When finished, reinstall the dipstick and lock the lever.

19. Reinstall the cargo box access panel, engine service panel and seats.

20. Dispose of used oil, filter and rags properly.

Programmable Service Interval
The service interval counter on the instrument cluster of your RZR is programmed to 25 hours at the factory. As hours of engine operation increase, the counter decreases. The wrench icon will flash for about 10 seconds when the counter reaches zero and each time the key is turned on thereafter until the counter is reset.

When this feature is enabled, it provides a convenient reminder to perform routine maintenance. Refer to the recommended oil change intervals.

To reset or change the service interval:
