    Bleeding air in coolant! Help!

    Hey guys I need some help? Could this be a good way to bleed air in my coolant on my 2002 polaris xc 600?

    Could bleed the coolant like this

    1. Elevate the front of the snowmobile 30-60 cm (12-
    14 in.).
    2. Remove the coolant tank cap and check coolant
    level. The coolant tank should be filled to the
    coolant level line.
    3. Install the coolant tank cap; then start the engine.
    Run the engine at 3000-3500 RPM until the
    bottom heat exchangers become hot to the touch.
    Stop the engine and allow the system to cool.
    4. Lower the front of the snowmobile and elevate the
    rear of the snowmobile 12-14 in. Repeat the
    procedures in step 3.
    5. Check the coolant level. Add coolant as required
    to the coolant tank (coolant tank should be filled to
    coolant level line). Repeat procedure until coolant
    level stabilizes in the coolant tank.

    NOTE: If coolant is required, mix coolant for a
    temperature of -36°C (-34°F). Follow mixing recommendations
    of the manufacturer of the coolan

    Well, I've been reading up on the edge 600's and the lines could be filled with air which isn't cooling down. When I take it for run it will overheat and i lose power until I hit some snow, then it's running good again. So I'm thinking it could be the snowflap or air in the coolent. I'm gonna give it a shot. I just want to know if bleeding the lines is the right way of doing it.

    You need a longer snow flap, good snow conditions and possible the aux rear cooler. Ive been down this road before. Brothers 01' 600 and parents 02' 600.

    There was an update from Polaris for that sled to add the aux rear cooler - definite known problem. If you want to bleed the system to be sure, park it on a tilt trailer and leave the deck tilted - this will give you a good angle/height to work with.

    Add a longer flap and scratchers might help as well - positioning will be important to be sure you get them to deflect in a way that they'll get to the existing cooler.
