How do you prime the fuel on a case 445 series 3 skid steer?


WELL MOST BOBCATS NOW HAVE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMPS NOW , SO REPRIMEING FILTER IS EASY YOU JUST KEEP CYCLING KEY (NOT TO START) WHEN FILTER IS PRIMED (NOTED IN PITCH CHANGE OF FUEL PUMP SOUND) THEN YOU CAN LOOSEN ONE INJECTOR SUPPLY PIPE (NOT REMOVE) TILL A HINT OF FUEL DRIPS OUT OF IT , CRANK ENGINE TILL IT TRYS TO START , THEN STOP AND TIGHTEN THE INJECTOR PIPE , THEN START NORMALLY ALLOW TO RUN FOR A FEW MINUTES BEFORE RESTORING TO SEVERVACE EVERYTHING
CAUTION : AS WITH ANY DIESEL THEY USE VERY HIGH PRESSURE PUMPS TO INJECT FUEL INTO ENGINE ALLWAYS KEEP EXPOSED SKIN AWAY AND SHIELD FACE/EYES WHEN WORKING ON THIS FUEL CAN AN WILL ENTER YOUR SKIN AND CAUSE YOU FATAL PROBLEMS !!!! SEEK MEDICAL HELP RIGHT AWAY IF FUEL ENTERS YOUR BODY !!!

My coolant expansion tank is overflowing after 20 minutes running


There could be a couple of reasons for this,

1. The thermostat could be stuck closed creating more pressure than normal. Your temp guage would show a higher temperature or you have another blockage in the system.
2. The expansion tank is too full.
3. The cylinder head may be leaking. If you fill the system run the engine to normal temperature with the radiator cap off, look for quite large bubbles coming out of the filler cap. If the head is badly leaking, they can be like a volcano. The temp will rise quickly from cold and the engine will overheat in a short distance.
It does seem odd that it would only spill over after 20 mins. Suspect that the expansion is over full first if your temp is normal. Let it run until it stops and see where the level is when the engine is cold.

97 Land Rover Discovery was running great. Ran out of gas put some in, at least 3 gallons, but now it won't start. Anyone have any idea why?


you do have to reprime te system which can take several minutes of trying to start. be careful not to burn up your starter. Never crank more than 10 seconds at a time, let starter cool after 2 minutes.

when you ran out you could have sucked all the debris in to your fuel pump and damaged it. have someone turn on the key while you listen under your gas tank for a humming sound. It will only last 1 or 2 seconds. that is the pump, if you hear nothing then your pump is bad and will need replaced. Also, check your filter what may have passed through te pump will not get passed the filter and it could now be clogged up. To locate the filter, follow the line from the tank to the engine and it will be in line before you get to the engine.

Engine quits after 3 or 4 miles of driving


I would think either a bad coil, or ignition module,or fuel pump. Sometimes the big relays for these system can cause this symptom so rotate the important ones in the engine compartment. Also if yours has an ASD relay this is your main power one.

No spark


What about battery and alternator (serpentine belt).
