If the pump has been removed for servicing then I would say that the pump injector timing is off. It has to be set on injection mark and not tdc.. Have a professional injector mechanic check the timing.

SOURCE: Coolant overflowing out of expansion tank no boil no steam

As you've stated driving around town it's fine, and everything is working well. For the symptoms, there are 2 possible causes:
1. Your cooling fans are not working.
2. Your radiator needs to be replaced.
I'm sure you can determine which it is, and I wish you luck on your repair.

SOURCE: 2000 ford super duty 7.3 diesel will not cold start

you need to have the engine coolant switch checked,since the computer relies solely on sensors,the ect tells the computer how cold or hot it is so the computer will make it a rich or lean mixture to start the engine,if it tells the computer that it is 75 degrees the computer will lean the mixture like starting a car in the winter without a choke.

SOURCE: Cracked Cylinder Head

I'd say moderately difficult: here are the instructions for replacing the head on a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport with 4.0 L engine:

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 4.0L Engines

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable
    • Crankcase Ventilation (CCV) hoses
    • Air cleaner assembly
    • Accelerator cable
    • Cruise control cable, if equipped
    • Transmission cable, if equipped
    • Control cable bracket
    • Valve cover
    NOTE: Keep valvetrain components in order for reassembly.
    • Rocker arms
    • Pushrods
    • Accessory drive belt
    • A/C compressor and bracket, if equipped
    • Power steering pump and bracket, if equipped
    • Fuel line
    • Combination manifold
    • Thermostat housing coolant hoses
    • Spark plugs
    • Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor connector
    • Cylinder head
    To install: WARNING
    Cylinder head bolts may only be reused one time. If reusing a cylinder head bolt, place a paint mark on the bolt after installation. If a cylinder head bolt has a paint mark, discard it and use a new bolt. NOTE: Refer to Section 1 of this manual for the cylinder head torque sequence illustration. The illustration is located after the Torque Specification Chart.
  4. Install the cylinder head with a new gasket. Coat the threads of bolt No. 11 with Loctite® F 592 sealant. CAUTION
    During the final tightening sequence, bolt No. 11 will be tightened to a lower torque value than the rest of the bolts. Do not overtighten bolt No. 11.
  5. Tighten the cylinder head bolts, in sequence, as follows:
    1. Step 1: 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm)
    2. Step 2: 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm)
    3. Step 3: 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm)
    4. Step 4: Bolts 1–10 to 110 ft. lbs. (149 Nm)
    5. Step 5: Bolt 11 to 100 ft. lbs. (136 Nm)
    6. Step 6: Bolts 12–14 to 110 ft. lbs. (149 Nm)
    7. Step 7: Repeat steps 4, 5 and 6
  6. Install or connect the following:
    • ECT sensor connector
    • Spark plugs
    • Thermostat housing coolant hoses
    • Combination manifold
    • Fuel line
    • Power steering pump and bracket, if equipped
    • A/C compressor and bracket, if equipped
    • Accessory drive belt
    • Pushrods and rocker arms in their original positions
    • Valve cover
    • Control cable bracket
    • Transmission cable, if equipped
    • Cruise control cable, if equipped
    • Accelerator cable
    • Air cleaner assembly
    • CCV hoses
    • Negative battery cable
  7. Fill the cooling system.
  8. Start the engine and check for leaks.

Hi Gert:
Sounds as if the throwout bearing / throwout lever has failed.
This will require some mechanical abilities to isolate the problem and do the repairs.

I'd guess: not enough fuel flow. could be a fuel filter, fuel pump, fuel pump relay, fuel pressure regulator. No check engine codes? I would think there should be some that would help diagnose.

Can i drop 97 ford explorer xlt motor in a 2000 explorer sport


If the engine displacement is the same then it will work, although you will have to change "ALL" electronic components on the engines from the 2000 engine to the 1997 engine as these components will be different. If you do not change them you will have several different problems. Most car manufacturers change their electronics year to year and sometimes even mid-year.

Opel astra twinport 1.6 2006 Z16XE TURNS OVER BUT WONT START


Hi, Have a diagnostic scan done and also a mechanical error trace ,
the solution to the problem could be the CKP crankshaft position sensor or a wiring related issue, it could also be the fuel pump , the pump relay , engine management actuator . In order for your engine to start it requires the following:
Compression
Fuel pressure and volume
A proper spark
Correct valve timing and ignition timing
A decent battery vitally important as all engine management relies on it.
Hope this helps a bit
Regards Higgins.

When driving suddenly the engine cuts out.


I heave the same problem on my Corsa B 1.0 2000, engine cuts out, and whe it happens, I hear one of the relay under the right side of the dash buzzing. After a couple of minutes, starts like nothing happend.
So far I manage to find that the speed sensor is faulty, when I tap him the car stops. I order a brand new one, but I'm not sure that was the issue.
I order also a Opel Tech2 tester from ebay and it has to arrive next week, then I can see the error code.

Emissions warning light stays illuminated while driving vehicle is a holden vectra 2001 and not oldsmobile as below. could not find a listing for holden.


The warning light has two states. A blinking light indicates a critical problem with gaseous emissions from the engine that is likely to cause permenant damage to the engine, exhaust sytem or catalytic converter. A blinking light must be remedied immediately, and the car should not be driven in this state, at the risk of causing serious and permenant damage to the engine, exhaust and/or catalytic converter. Repairing or replacing these parts can be extremely expensive. A reputable garage or a Vauxall/Opel garage should be able to diagnose and repair the problem.

A solid (unblinking) light indicates a non-critical fault in the emmisions exhaust system. Many faults are covered by this light including failures in emssions sensors, temperature sensors and a variety of other parts. This usually results in a higher than average amount of environmentally harmful pollutants being expelled from the car, loss of power and/or gradual damage to the engine, exhaust and catalytic converter. While the car can still be driven with a non-critical emmisions problem, it is highly recommended that the fault is diagnosed and repaired at a reputable garage or Vauxhall/Opel garage.
