05 Rincon

Hi y'all! My 05 Rincon that I just bought stopped moving in the middle of the yard. Shifting from forward to reverse doesn't make any noise. It's been burning oil and I've added regular motor oil to it not realizing that's a big no no. I can't find oil drips anywhere under the machine or on the motor. It's got around 1800 miles on it. The shift cable is fine, it rotates the shaft going into the transmission case.

You are going to have to flush the bad oil out. Numerous times with proper oil or diesel. The car oil may have killed your clutches.

The car oil is a no no but there are 3 clutches (1 for each gear). I think having all three clutches slip at the same time is unlikely. Try using the manual shift button and using second and third gear. If they pull Ok you might have fried first (first and reverse use the same clutch). If the quad tries to move, Oilcans thoughts may work.


I would get underneath the quad and have somebody move the shift lever. Make sure the arm on the transmission is moving as the shift lever is moved from F to N to R. If it is this eliminates a cable issue and the internal gear mechanism may have come apart.

Ooops, sorry, I read the OP again. Part of my post above is still worth a try. Next thought is the oil pump chain has broken or come off and you have no oil pressure to shift the gears. Oilcan will be back I'm sure to tell you how to do this, I have never had to and would just be quoting the manual on it.

Oil pressure testing is in the manual. You would need to check pressure, after you thoroughly clean that old oil out. Start there and make sure your motor oil is the correct type. As CD indicated the oil pump may have issues (busted chain etc) If so, you will have zero oil pressure, which means, no movement possible even though the engine runs fine.

Your shift lever is on the left side about where your heel would be if your foot is on the peg. Remove the oil fill access cover (pull it off) and inspect the shifting mechanism by moving your shift lever. You should see the arm move up and down as you move the shift lever back and forth.

So I visually made sure the shift lever and cable are moving properly. I put atv in manual shift and tried 2nd and 3rd. Nothing. It doesn't even click or anything! I wonder if shift for is broke? my ten-year-old son was driving it in the yard pulling a small trailer and it just stopped moving no noises no grinding no jerking, it just simply stopped going. I have not checked oil pressure nor have I drained the motor oil. Thanks for all the input guys!

Oil pressure test (suspect fail) , then I'm betting on that oil pump chain.

I needed to do repair my 05 recently, the oil pump chain fell off, you need to check oil pressure first. if you don't have a pressure tester, you can remove the line pressure bolt section 12-9 in the manual, and turn the motor over, if you don't see any oil come out, the problem is no oil pressure, so likely the oil pump chain. you should be careful running the motor before you do this test.

Yes, it was the oil chain! Apparently it got so stretched out it came off the pump sprocket. I'm having a hard time spending the money for that torque converter puller! Grrrrr!
