2007 400 4x4 - Full throttle and it can't even get out of it own way...

Have a 2007 400 4x4 automatic FIS... When I try to go forward, thing has no power. Motor is running strong and full throttle, but the wheels are rolling slow... try to go up even a small hill and it can't make... oh boy... what could this be? Reverse seems to be fine. Low is better, but also lame... no real power. It wants to go... but just can't. What am I in for??? Thanks

Wrong oil, belt worn, clutch springs, wet clutch worn out. Wrong oil is the biggest culprit and does wonders on the wet clutch. Sometimes you can save it by changing oil a couple of times.

Thanks. The oil has a little white in it from water. Did 6 oil changes in a row... drain... fill... idle... repeat until I could not see white. Final oil was synthetic mobile 1. Is that ok oil to use? How do I get to the belt? Thank you

Wrong oil.. Needs to be oil specifically for wet clutch.. Sounds like you need to check the wet clutch shoes. Probably toast.
