Mrs. Sherry Chenoweth said drivers of the Ski Doo 15 horse- power 300 series could suddenly find themselves stalled in traffic or on the side of a slope where a dead engine could cause the machine to tip. The Bombardier spokesman said the engine trouble resulted from using the machine when temperatures are warm and un- seasonable. Mrs. Chenoweth said a rede- signed engine cover may cause the engine to overheat, allowing vapor lock which kills the en- gine. The problem could be tem- porarily solved by removing the engine cover to allow air to cool the motor. The company would assume any costs of modifying the snowmobile, she said.
