Xt1200z heat left leg

On heavy traffic, when stopped or running slow, me and my wife feels a strong heat from the left cowling, coming straight from the radiator. I have ideas to solve it, but, someone already solved it before me?

Check for any splits on the rubber intake sleeve.this is what connects the carb to the bike.If this does not rectify the fault then strip down and clean the carb jets especially the idle jet as it may be slightly blocked causeing such symptoms.good luck

My 2006 f150 makes a roaring sound at random times when driving and will not quit until completely stopped then you can feel something disengage.


when the sound starts check the temp gauge and see where it is at
I'm thinking that you have a viscous fan hub and it cuts in when standing at lights or slow traffic or heavy loads at slow speeds
it will keep running until the engine temp comes down or you switch the engine off
or it could be a electrical controlled fan and the noise on shut down is the relay clicking off

WHY IS MY HINO 500 TRUCK OVER HEATING ALMOST TO THE RED ZONE AND THE COOLANT LEVEL IS ON THE MAXIMUM?


couple of reasons
have a compression test done to determine head gasket or cracked head
watch closely when the over heating starts and if it cools down
it the temp rises when going slow ( heavy traffic, hard pulling up hills , stop lights -- basically when the road speed is low and there is low/no air through the radiator-- check for a faulty fan clutch or viscous fan hub failure ( spins but doesn't pull air )
check for thermostat failure and not opening if from a cold start it is going to over heat within 5 miles of 10 minutes of idling
check for blocked radiator(internal)cores or radiator fins (external) falling off the cores
The first point of call for me would be the fan drive system

Why is my car messing up


Obviously its problem with your fuel to air mixture. It is building up unburnt fuel due to not enough oxygen. This lack of enough oxygen will cause the stalls and the build up of gas will cause the backfires. Heat affects the mixture ratio. A number of detector are involved in the exhaust system and any one of them could be failing. Throttle Position Sensors, MAP sensor, Oxygen sensors, catalytic converter, etc. You should be getting the check engine light coming on also. Any auto parts place can read you the code numbers for free. They will provide more specific information about failing parts.

It appears that you have a viscous fan hub driving the fan or should I say failing to drive the fan. The fix is to replace it . If you have electric fans then there is a problem in the temp sensor system and the fans are not cutting in on temperature The problem you state is indicated by the fact that when driving there is sufficient air through the radiator to remove the heat from the radiator ..but when driving slow there is no air flow because the fan is not drawing air through the radiator and the temperature climbs until over heat is reached . Typical indicators of fan speed problem is overheating at stop sign/lights, slow heavy traffic driving, slow up hill driving, and rapid cool down as road speed is increased , the faster the speed the cooler the motor

If you have a viscous fan hub then have it replaced as it is not drawing air through the radiator at idle or slow speed (crawling traffic). Check that are no air locks in the system as they will cause heating problems.

Heat while moving, none when I slow down or stop.


Double check your cooling system. Make sure it's topped up and that all the pipes leading from the radiator heat up during normal use, if not, you need a new thermostat.

I have a 1999/2000 volvo v40, a green dashboard light has come on, looks like a clock but the hand is outside, looks to be pointing at the 9 or 10, any idea's, iv'e lost my book!


That's the cruise control. Green symbol means that it's enabled.

There is a double button on the tip of turn-signal switch. Pressing plus or minus freezes current speed and you may apply some relax to your leg. A speed tuning is possible using this button(s). There's also a switch that disables the feature. If you are forced to slow down or stop, you may run the car again and restore previously set speed using "Resume" function on this switch.

Cruise control switches immediately to manual control after touching the brake or clutch pedal.

Cruise control doesn't work at very low speed and is not recommended in streets woth heavy traffic.

I would look at restrictions in the radiator, both air flow and coolant flow.
Also make sure the radiator fan is running at full speed.
