Need some help!! '14 HDX 700

Hey guys need some help.


We're in Silver Lake duning around and have an issue. I was channeling my inner Louis Hamilton pretending to be an F1 driver around the puddles, the engine got a bit hot and started throwing p0116 and was steaming from the front a little.



We let it cool down and now when we start it it no longer leaks/smokes from the front, but smells like coolant under the seat and intermittently throws P0116 and is running in limp mode.


We're trying to bandaid it so we can just put around tomorrow, but obviously not if it's going to hurt the motor. Google has brought me answers anything brown a popped head gasket to an air bubble in the coolant lines, I can't seem to find the coolant tank to check for bubbles (admitting I haven't looked hard for it as we just got back to camp) but can't remember off hand ever seeing it.


My machine has 1500 miles on it and we've loved every minute. I hope it's not hurt too bad.

Welcome to the site! Do you live in Michigan? Sure sounds like a blown head gasket. Are you getting any white smoke out of the exhaust? Check your coolant level, top it off, and start your machine. See if you have any air bubbles in the radiator. Next, with the engine running, loosen one of the hose clamps near the thermostat housing. This should allow any trapped air to escape. These things can be a royal pain at times to get all of the air out! You may have to purge the air several times. Are you still at Silver Lake?

Yup we live in Pleasant Lake south of Lansing. Our AC is primarily a farm work horse, but we're still at SL for the day. We're staying at the state park with some friends.


There is no coolant in the exhaust (first thing we checked still on the dunes) and it doesn't sound like its misfiring or anything.


I'll check the rest of the stuff right now we just woke up for breakfast

Is there a diagnostic mode or any combination of buttons to push to show temps or any extra info on the dash. The radiator took 2 water bottles of water, but no real bubbles in the top when running (like say a HG failure) lots of turbulence and a few random bubbles now and then like the wp is doing its job.
