I talked to the mechanic he told me he micd the pistons after tear down and found the pistons are to small. Thus allowing for the blow by. My Question is how many pistons were cast this way? Also has anybody had there engine rebuilt during warranty? Does Polaris warranty the rebuilt engine another 6 months? I'm thinking they should just put a new engine in my XP. Ranger build date: 12-06 Total hours: 27.Is this going to be a lemon after polaris rebuilds IT ?

Aaron,
This problem seems like it would be a good one to scream for a whole new machine. For the price of the Ranger you should not have to settle for a rebuilt engine at the least it should be a BRAND SPANKIN NEW ENGINE.

If it's rebuilt by a good mechanic, it will be better than a new, mass produced one. I don't understand the stigma attached to rebuilt engines, almost anything that hauls ass is running a rebuilt engine. Unless you have unlimited money, you don't throw away your drag race engine at the end of the season, you go through it. It's the same with buggies, bikes,quads,etc. You build it better, stronger, faster![:p] You might see if they'll let you pay for the hi-po upgrades while they're in there, but remember there's usually no guarantees on hi-po motors other than that they'll fire the first time. So what, if you have the money to run it, you better have the money to fix it.[:D]

Ditto.

& BTW, Polaris will not replace a unit due to warrantable issues. I've been doing this for 4 years and never seen it happen. If it takes a while for the dealer to repair it, they will extend your warranty.
