Default oil change

I just bought a 2001 trailblazer 250. No owners manual. How many quarts of oil do I use? And is it ok to use brands other than Polaris?

You don't change oil in it because it's a 2-stroke. And you only need to post a question once. As I said on the other thread:
You can use any good brand of 2-stroke injector oil in it. I had the same quad except it was a 2000, and after I used up the Polaris oil I bought some smokeless 2-stroke oil but can't remember what brand. I don't know how much oil it holds either but IIRC it should be enough for 2 tanks of gas. But don't hold me to that. Pick a brand and don't switch back and forth, back and forth between brands because some of them can get gummy when they're mixed together, or so I was told.

P.S. Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forums.



Jumbo pretty much covered it.



On the nose of the quad you'll see the filler for the oil reservoir.

I thought of that after I logged off for the night. Mine had the same color scheme as that one, but without the billiard ball shifter ****. After all these years I can't remember if it said on the cap that's where the oil goes but I think it did. EDIT: I took another look at the pic and it looks like it says oil on the cap.
