I have a 2015 Mule 610 XC and did a hard days work at the deer lease this weekend.

had to pull a trailer around, in and out of puddles nothing to deep

in the last hour or 2 we were driving to the back part of the lease to put up a game camera , driving down the county road going as fast as that little Mule will let me and i start to smell something burning look back and white smoke is coming out.

Slow down and it stops so i figured maybe some water got somewhere or i had put in some Sea Foam on not this trip but the one before it maybe it was burning something out and go on my way.

Drive the rest of the way back to the spot to put the camera out, going as fast again, nothing happens until coming back, going down the county road again at almost the same spot, smell it again look back huge cloud. slowed down again it stops, put it in neutral try and see if we can make it happen again but it doesnt and pretty much go back to camp load and head home with no issues i can see.


wasn't sure if i should ride it some more to see if this happens again, if this is something i need to bring in to be checked out right way, if there was some stuff i can do to see if whats happening or if yall are like yup know just what it is and here is the good news.

Thanks,

Check your oil level. Be sure it isn't over full, And the smoke was coming out of the exhaust pipe correct?
Could also be a valve seal leaking. Happened with our mule, not noticable at lower speeds but really smoked at high speed , New valve seals fixed it.
And In the are it happens is there a difference in terrain? I.e. Up or down a hill?

Thanks TCM3, and yes it is coming out the exhaust and i will double check the oil.

I did check it but i really was seeing if it was to low not high so looking back i think i need to check again.

When it happened it was on the flat smooth county road, and its was when i was maintaining my top speed. Normally around the property its on and off the gas due to pot holes, mud holes, bumps and what have you

If it is to much oil should i have noticed this sooner, i got my oil changed almost a year ago now.

if it is a seal, is this something i need to fix asap? is it possible to do it myself?
