Y dose the john dear 6330 run hot all the time even after it blowen out



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.

2003 lincoln aviator water boiling and car overheating


Check to coolant level after it cools off and check to see if coolant-water mixture is correct. If those are ok. You could have to much air in the coolant system. Most radiator caps will automatically vent the air out of the coolant system. It could be as simple as a coolant cap that gone bad. Or you may have a air bleed valve on it and you need to bleed the air out manually. To bleed it you will have to crank engine and get it warm. Touch top radiator hose to see if its warm. If not then the thermostat has not opened yet. That could also be the problem. After it gets warm open the bleeder valve if equipped and bleed all the air out. Once the steam and hot air from the valve starts to be gone and pure coolant coming from the valve. You have successfully bleed the coolant system. Cool engine back off and check coolant level once more. Hope this helps.

Bleeding the cooling system


look at your top radiator hose is there a small bleed valve at the top of the thermostat housing when the upper hose attaches to? If so loosen the bleed valve and allow the cooling system to purge the air out of the system you can tell when the air is out of the system when a steady stream of coolant starts to flow out of the bleed valve, if there is no bleed valve take the top radiator hose off of the engine side and allow the cooling system to purge the air out through the top of the engine that way

Engine gets hoat some time, no heat from heater. top hose seems hot to touch lower hose is cool. Drained radiator few weeks ago and problem began


Theres a strong possibility being you just changed the coolant a few weeks ago that theres air in the cooling system not allowing the coolant to cirrculate properly, look at your top radiator hose is theres a small bleed valve at the top of the thermostat housing when the upper hose attactes to? If so loosen the bleed valve and allow the cooling system to purge the air out of the system you can tell when the air is out of the system when a steady stream of coolant starts to flow out of the bleed valve, if theres no bleed valve take the top radiator hose off of the engine side and allow the cooling system to purge the air out through the top of the engine that way, but it definatly sounds like theres air in the system not allowing for the cooling system to cool properly...

1st make sure your cooling fans turn on. If they do, you probably have air in your cooling system. If you don't know where the bleed valve is or how to bleed the cooling system, check out this link. COOLANT BLEED VALVE

How to change a water pump on a 2000 intrepid 3.2 engine


3.2L & 3.5L Engines
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
    WARNING Do not use pliers to open the plastic drain.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    NOTE It is good practice to turn the crankshaft until the No. 1 cylinder is at Top Dead Center (TDC) of its compression stroke (firing position).
    Negative battery cable Coolant recovery cap and open the thermostat bleed valve Drive belts Timing belt Water pump mounting bolts, noting the position of the longer bolt Water pump. Discard the O-ring seal.
  4. Clean the gasket sealing surfaces, being careful not to scratch the aluminum surfaces.

    ee818be.jpg
    Fig. Water pump bolt locations, make sure to note the position of the longer bolt
To install:
  1. Install or connect the following:
    WARNING Rotate the pump and check for freedom of movement.
    New O-ring and wet with clean coolant prior to installation. Be sure to keep the new O-ring free of any oil or grease. Water pump with a new O-ring. Torque the water pump-to-engine bolts to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm). Timing belt Drive belts
  2. Fill the cooling system by performing the following procedure:
    1. Close the radiator drain.
    2. Open the thermostat bleed valve. Install a 1 / 4 in. (6mm) clear hose about 48 in. (1.2m) long to the end of the bleed valve and the other end into a clean container. The intent is to keep coolant off of the drive belt(s).
    3. Slowly, refill the coolant recovery bottle until a steady stream of coolant flows out of the thermostat bleed valve. Gently squeeze the upper radiator hose until all of the air is removed from the system.
    4. Close the bleed valve and continue to fill the coolant recovery bottle to the proper level. Install the cap on the bottle and remove the hose from the bleed valve.
  3. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and allow it to reach normal operating temperatures.
  4. Check the cooling system for leaks and correct coolant level.
    WARNING Be sure that the thermostat bleed valve is closed once the cooling system has been bled of any trapped air.

Good luck (remember rated this).

1993 Geo : How do I bleed air from the cooling system? Is there a bleed valve? Where is it located?


No bleed valve. If you want to get the air out of the system, just run the car until it's hot and the thermostat opens, and then run it some more so that the coolant is fully distributed. The air will get to the top of the engine - the filler cap. Then after it's cool you can refill the engine, and the overfill tank.
