Changing the Oil on an Arctic Cat Mud Pro 700
PRO TIP: Before changing your Mud Pro 700's oil, run the engine for a minute. This warms the oil and makes it drain better.
Step 1. Remove the seat, the left side panel and the oil dipstick.
Step 2. Remove the oil drain plug located beneath the motor, which is accessed through the hole in the belly panel. Let the oil drain out completely.
Step 3. Inspect the old drain plug gasket. If it has become flattened from overuse, replace it with a new drain plug gasket. Some Arctic Cat ATV owners replace the drain plug gasket with every oil change, but it should be changed at least once a year.
Step 4. Reinstall the oil drain plug and drain plug gasket.
Step 5. Remove the old oil filter, which is located on the lower right side of the motor and accessed from beneath the right front fender. Have a rag ready to clean up any oil that spills out of the old filter.
PRO TIP: If you change your oil filter regularly, you will probably be able to remove the old filter by hand. However, if the filter has been there for a while and is stuck, you'll need an oil filter wrench to remove it.
Step 6. Take a new oil filter, lube its O-ring with engine oil and install the filter.
Step 7. Add 2 quarts of quality engine oil and reinstall the oil dipstick.
Step 8. Run the engine for a minute, then switch it off and check the oil level on the dipstick. Top off the oil level if necessary and you're good to go. Enjoy your ride!
