Hello all,

A friend gave me a Polaris 96 SLTX as he was leaving town, I don't know the last time it was running but it's in rough shape. I got a new battery and tried to start it, I can hear the starter engage but the engine doesn't turn over. Where should I start troubleshooting?

Pull the plugs and put about 3 table spoons of atf down the holes and let it sit. Next move will be to attempt to turn it over by hand somehow to make sure the engine is not locked up. Most common is to try and use the driveshaft inside the engine compartment.

Thanks, I will try this next. Should I try and put a wrench on the drive shaft? Or is there an easier way to turn it?
