Hi this is my first post, I have been reading for awhile bought a 08 teryx bout 3 weeks ago and ive had nothing but problems from the start. Me and the wife just took it out for a ride after i changed the oil earlier. we rode for about 30 minutes all black top riding, I started up a hill and it started smoking from inside the cab (White smoke) and the oil light started flashing and it died and would not start back so we pushed it up the hill, and called for help then towed it back home. Ive just had the carbs cleaned and valves adjusted. What would have caused it? Thanks for reading i hope this wasn't covered somewhere else i tried to search for it but couldn't find a problem like mine.

You may have overfilled it a bit. On the hill oil could have puked in the plenum and entered into the carbs. Catch can is the proper fix if this is the issue. Temporary fix is to drop a bit of oil out and retest (still lots left on dipstick though).
