Cooling System

The Can-am Defender's engine requires a cooling system, made up of sensors, fans, and coolant-filled lines, to keep it functioning effectively. Neglecting this system could result in the risk of the engine overheating. In such a situation, it is best to first ensure that there is enough coolant present. Then, proceed to clean the radiator to optimize airflow. Another common issue that arises is the presence of an air bubble in the system. This can be resolved by removing the radiator cap and letting the Defender run on a slope allowing the coolant to circulate and release any trapped air. Regular maintenance of the Can-am Defender's cooling system is imperative to avoid costly repairs and unexpected breakdowns.

If you’ve tried all this but to no avail, your Can-am Defender heating system might need some replacement parts. A nicked or punctured cooling line, faulty cooling fans, and cracks / dings in the radiator can all cause your UTV to overhead. Furthermore, overheating can occur even if your rig’s cooling system is perfectly functional. Brakes can drag, belts can slip, and a number of other things can happen that make the machine work harder than normal. If this is the case, you’ll see that your side-by-side cools down okay at idle, but heats up more than normal while moving. But whatever the case may be and whatever you may need, from replacement fans and high-grade coolant to OEM radiator replacement blades, aftermarket radiators, and radiator relocation kits, here at Everything Can-am Offroad, we’ve got a complete lineup of Can-Am Defender cooling systems and cooling system components to keep your engine at the optimal temperature.
