Hey All,

Ranger Crew 500 EFI

I've been reading through several past topics and haven't seen exactly what can connect with this. If there are any, please feel free to let me know where so this doesn't have to be rediscussed.

Issues:
- Ranger began overheating recently (within last two months)
- No overheating issues while ranger is moving (only issue is during idle)
- Will overheat as it idles (eventually dies)
- Fan is blowing and kicks on fine
- Radiator gets hot
- As of recent, ranger would rev high at spurts while idling and go back to normal idle
- Coolant levels are normal and have not blown out

What do I have going on? Thank you for any help you can give me. I am getting ready to go into the hunting season with a lot of travel into some deep backcountry; I have to get this figured out!

My first thought is to check the radiator for obstructions and make certain it is absolutely clean (outside).

mine was doing this at the lease two years ago and I looked at the radiator and it was jam packed with some kind of small grass seeds. Washed it out and it was good to go
