Question about 2011 Yamaha XT1200Z Super Tenere

1 Answer

Left leg heated

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?

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

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

Over heating


If your vehical is over heating at idea it is most likely the radiator fan
this can be checked by running the car until it heats up and looking at the fan to see if it is running.
This usually isn't an issue as long as you are driving, but when you stop or driving slow or in traffic it will start heating up quickly. your fan keeps air flow going through the engine while at a stop to help cool down the engine compartment and pull.push air through the radiator

If you still over heat no matter if your driving or stopped it may be a thermostatic radiator valve that went bad. this is a release valve between the radiator and the engine that helps control the coolent flow between the engine and radiator and control how much heat is taken out of the engine to be cooled in the radiator.

So, run the car and see if the radiator fan kicks on. if it does, it's probably not a bad fan. if your car starts over heating and the fan never comes on it's most likely some problem with the fan

if it is turning and you are still having problems overheating go buy a new valve and change it out. cost you at most 5 bucks for a new one (probably less)

Vitara 1.6 cuts out


Are you quite sure it is not overheating? Your mention of heavy traffic, ie. stop and go, would tell me that your radiator fans are not working. I had a car with bum electric radiator fans. It worked fine if it was moving a lot. But in slow traffic, it would get warm enough to have a vapor lock or something without setting the engine-hot light.
