Your radiator has a major role in the life of your Can-Am Commander, and where UTV aftermarket accessories are concerned, it is a priority part. The radiator on your UTV is the heat exchange point on your Side by Side. Your radiator circulates coolant or water into the engine block then returns it to the radiator to cool it down. A faulty radiator or one that has stopped working can lead to a blown engine and that blown engine can be avoided by maintaining and paying attention to coolant levels in your radiator.
Given the location of your radiator and the lifestyle that comes with owning your CanAm Commander, monitoring your radiator for damage regularly is advised. Damage to your Side by Side is not the only damning thing that can occur with a faulty radiator, some relocation kits are placed behind the headrest on the driver’s side so should a leak form, extreme harm can be the end result as 200-degree coolant would be shot directly to your face at a pressure of 16PSI.
All danger and warnings aside, choosing a radiator replacement that you can depend on is really a breeze here at Everything Can-Am Offroad, as we carry only the best parts and brands and endeavor to inform and guide our customers to choose the best fit for the model of Can-Am Commander that they have. Investing in quality can save you a lot of headache in the long run and can ensure many years of enjoyment from your Can-Am Commander
If you do find yourself with an overheating Can-am Commander, start with the obvious and clean out the radiator coils. If that doesn’t help you might want to put a new thermostat in the bike and open the bleeder bolts on top of the heads and fill them with coolant. Tighten everything up and if it still starts puking coolant out of the reservoir tank, you should take the radiator off and see if you can see daylight through it. If not then it means that your radiator fins are too bent and not allowing air to go through. And never underestimate the simple things. We’ve seen riders put a new radiator on their Can-am Commander, bypass the thermostat, and do a variety of other things only to find out that it was their radiator cap causing the issue.
In addition to the radiator cap, you could have an air bubble in the cooling system that is messing things up. To get rid of any air in the cooling lines, lift the front end off the ground or park on a really steep hill. Leave the rad cap off and let your Commander idle for 10-15 minutes. After that put the cap on and let it idle a few more minutes, cracking the bleeder every few minutes. If that doesn’t solve the problem you need to check the coolant for exhaust gasses. Testers are sold and can be rented at autozone, advance auto parts and the like. I your Commander passes the tests, stick a water pump on it before it goes pop.
