No they are not noted for this type of problem. You may have a sticking air temperature control bleed door and/or a defective blend door actuator stepper motor

455ranger husqvara,i run it till it needs gas,it wont restart till an hour, sometimes it wont restart till next day. Do you know why?

Sounds like just too low compression. This will keep it from starting. Do a compression test and wright down the reading. Remember, when it's warmed up, the heat has made the cylinder expand a bit so the compression is going to be down. If the rings are warn out, that will drop the compression even more when it's warm. Fence the no start when warm.

No immediate heat

Check the fluid level in your radiator reservoir. Mine was doing the same thing and I found mine was very low. Filled it up and the heat came on through.

1999 expedition- After driving for a half hour or so the engine smells like a faint burning smell but the temp. gauge inside reads normal. I also can not get any hot air to come out with the heater on even...

No heat usually means low water level in radiator. Check your plastic surge tank to see if is at the proper level. When engine is cool check actual level in radiator.

For smell check to see if any oil is weeping from top engine gasket and dripping onto exhaust manifold, You should be able to check with flashlight while engine is idling.

At high speed engine temperature is Ok, at low speed or idle it warms up to over half way and the coolant level warning light comes on. There is plenty of coolant, an new water pump and a new thermostat....

is cooling fan coming on?? the coolant level light pertains to a sensor that is in radiator side tank that is notorious for going bad you may have two seperate problems normal temp at high speed tells me the wind passing across radiator is keeping cool when stopped or in traffic as temp increases pcm commands fan to come on if it does,nt you will heat up

No heat

The 3400 is notorious of the head gaskets blowing. this may not be in your case. Check the level of the coolant. Their may be air in the heater core. bring it up to operating temp then check the level.

Hope it is just air in the system not the heads!

1991 Toyota 4x4, 4 cyl. engine. Surges when coolant level is low, even though it has not yet heated up.

your carb has a coolant heated choke system if i am correct as car warms up the coolant warms the choke spring. keep full of coolant to keep from other damage
