2006 Rincon with Gas in the Oil

Hello, I have a 2006 Rincon and recently noticed Gas in the oil.

I noticed this since the tranny was slipping so I checked the oil and it definitely is thin with a strong gas odor.

The ATV engine seems to run smooth with no smoke otherwise, I have not yet had a chance to replace the oil(doing so this weekend) nor have I checked compression(again this weekend).

However I was wondering if anyone on here ever experienced this or have some insights on diagnosing the issue?

Thanks in advance, btw the Rincon has just over 7000miles on it.

Welcome!

Do you have a service manual? You're gonna need to do some trouble shooting on the fuel injection system. I would stop using the machine, to prevent engine damage..Its running a bit rich ..

Yes, I have stopped running it. I am going to give it an oil change this weekend and compression test. Hopefully the numbers come back in the norm.


I read on a forum that it could be a faulty injector but was hoping for other insights.

How long has the oil been in there? Is the level higher than it was?

Though it might smell like gas and seen thin, I think I’d send a sample to Blackstone.

An injector can stick open or dribble when closed, but in the case of a single cylinder I would think it would run very poorly if that were the case.
