Engine or hydraulic system overheating clearpix.gif clearpix.gif clearpix.gif clearpix.gif clearpix.gif clearpix.gif Coolant system low on coolant in 6020, 6030, 6030 Premium, 7020, 7030 and
7030 Premium Series Tractors.

]clearpix.gif//-->
Symptoms
After several hours of work, warning system indicates hot engine coolant or hot hydraulic oil.
Situation or Problem
Coolant level in reservoir is between the "MIN" and "MAX" range but engine or hydraulic system is overheating.
Summary
Air is entering cooling system, hindering coolant flow. Check coolant level. Fill to the "MAX" line on the coolant reservoir.
Bleeding Cooling System:
The bleed valve (see Operator's Manual for location) on the radiator must be closed when the tractor is operating. Open the valve when coolant is drained or filled. If the bleed valve is left open, coolant will internally bypass between the low temperature circuit and engine high temperature circuit causing overheating. When bleeding the system, open the bleed valve and run the engine with no load for 5 minutes at 1700 rpm. Then shut engine off for 5 to 10 minutes before closing the drain valve. Check the coolant level. If level is below the "MAX" fill line, repeat this procedure until coolant level stays at the "MAX" line.

If its running hot and says check coolant level and the water bubbles out of the radiator cap does that mean water pump or cylinder


engine have back pressure that cause overheating or engine runs hot. could be, ( yes, cylinder) the piston rings. but the cooling system is the other system you have to look into. check the engine thermostat, if found faulty, replace it.

Have you checked your coolant levels as well as thermostat and waterpump functions? These can all atribute to engine overheating.

2000 Chevy Silverado normal operating temp is 210 , recently temp rises to 250. Its been this way for a few days, common operating temp is around 240-250 now, but does not overheat. Coolant levels are...


250 TOO HOT FOR ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION. SOUND LIKE COOLING FAN CLUTCH BAD ITS FREEWHEELING NOT LOCKING UP TO DIRECT DRIVE TOO COOL ENGINE OFF BECAUSE THE FAN CLUTCH THERMOSTAT NOT WORKING THE HOT SILICONE OIL CAUSE IT TO EXPAND TO PUT RESISTANCE ON CLUTCH TO PUT DRAG ON FAN CLUTCH CAUSING IT TO LOCK IN GIVE IT DIRECT DRIVE.I WOULD STILL REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP IF TEMPERATURE STILL 250 DEGREES YOUR RADIATOR AND COOLANT SYSTEM NEED FLUSHING.

HI. MY CADILLAC SEVILLE V8 4.9L '93, STILL OVERHEATING. I REPLACED: NEW RADIATOR, FAN MOTOR, THERMOSTAT, WATER PUMP. SOMETIMES DRIVES GOOD AVERAGE 180 DEGREES, BUT AT NOON INCREASE 240, 255. I DONT KNOW...


Ensure motor tune or other motor mechanical condition is not the cause of overheating, I assume the motor is actually running hot, - ensure the high gauge reading is not just a gauge sender problem. Check cooling fans are operating ok (as necessary when car warms up):- if not check
1) fuse,
2) relay operation,
3) heat sensor switch.

Check the coolant pressure cap is serviceable & of correct rating,
Ensure cooling system is correctly filled, bleed off any airlocks as necessary when re-filling,
Ensure radiator hose on suction side of waterpump is not collapsing at engine revs above idle (due softening),
If the motor has been severely overheated, the head gasket could be blown - look for combustion gas bubbles in the coolant resevoir.

If none of the above fix your problem, replace the thermostat again - it is not unheard of for a new thermostat to be faulty .

OVERHEATING


It is possible that there was a problem which initiated the warning but is no longer present. There are several things that could cause this. Even a vary hot day with a lot of stop and go driving could be enough to give you that warning. It could also be that something is starting to fail, like a thermostat or temperature sensor.
It it really difficult to say without seeing the vehicle.
However I can tell you that 250 degrees is on the high side. The radiator fan should turn on around 225 and off at around 215. You can check your fan be lifting the hood and starting the car. When you see the fan turn on check the temp. Then give it a few minutes. The fan should turn back off. If it just runs nonstop that's a good indication it's running too hot.
Have you checked your coolant level? You should make sure it's full and if not check for any leaks under the car. Also make sure there are no obstructions to the air flow on the radiator grill such as leaves. If your coolant level is fine and you can't see any thing that would affect the air flow then it would be a good idea to have it checked out. At the very least have the codes read. Places like Auto Zone will check the error codes for free.
Also you should check for recalls on the coolantadiator system.I included a link where you can check through.
Hope this helps.

False overheated 92 Seville STS


Coolant temperture sensor is the first thing to inspect.
With the engine off and cold.
Pull the connector and clean it.
Check is this the OE sensor. It will have on of the following number on it.
10045847; 12146312; 15321686; 15326386; 25036092; 25036708; 25036979; 25037182

Write any number down, You will help you to get the EXACT match in the auto part store.
The sensor is around $15.
If the contact cleaning does not help then just replace the coolant temperture sensor.
Use the water pump thread sealer to ensure proper seal.
After install the sensor,inspect for ANY coolant leak before put the vehicle back to service,
Please post more information or question on the comment window.
I will follow this post.

Overheating and change engine oil ... oil was changed one week ?


it seems like the radiator of your car needs attention. check for coolant level in it, when its cold. if les add some coolant and then see if the problem persists.
--than there are chances of chocking in the coolant pipes, may be they not reached to engine..  
--Check the chock,, that it is not turned on. 
--May be sum loosing nut in engine.
