Inner cooler for supercharger keeps coming up empty

I have a 99 ford lightning, no problems with performance or regular cooling system. I noticed the inner cooler system that runs to the supercharger was empty. I refilled to the full mark and after 100 miles it was empty again. Refilled again and after 10 miles it is half full. Any ideas?

Fill it again and monitor for proper level. Also you may want to lay a piece of card board under front of vehicle to see if it is leaking. I would pressure test the system to see if it is leaking but you may need to take it to a service station!

My Dimplexcooler keeps stopping have to keep empty water every two hours

The water it is collecting is due to the high humidity level of the air passing through the cold coils; the result is condensation. This is normal operation; dehumidification is an important part of the cooling process. As the room gets cooler & less humid - the amount of condensate will decrease.

Many of these coolers provide a means to connect a hose that brings this condensation directly to a drain; instead of filling removable tanks that need to be emptied regularly. These coolers usually do not have condensate pumps and rely on gravity to drain. That makes it very important to route the hose in such a way that no portion of the hose is higher than the point of connection to the cooler.

Good luck!

Check this out with performance shops as there may be an intercooler that fits straight in. You may have to get brackets in a kit or make them yourself. The problem will the routing of the intercooling hoses to and from the turbo/manifold . Front mounted intercooler are more efficient at cooling the air so the only problem I can see apart from the engineering side of fitting it is that you may have to have a speed shop with a chassis dyno reprogram the CPU to get the best performance from the cooler more dense air.

Oil in the cooling system

oil in the cooling system comes from a transmission oil cooler in the radiator leaking. I take it that you have an automatic transmission Normally if you have a gasket problem the water would be in the sump oil. You will need to replace the radiator to effectively fix the problem and as a side suggestion consider an air cooled transmission oil cooler for the transmission oil as it helps the car to run cooler and keeps the transmission oil cooler and extends the life of the transmission.

2000 Ford F 150 Lightning. 5.4 supercharged. Keep

code p0171 refers to system too lean bank 1===causes --intake/ exhaust leak. AIR system---MAF?VAF sensor--fuel pressure/pump--injectors. HO2S
code po174 refers to system too lean bank 2===causes -intake/exhaust leak--fuel pressure /pump--injectors--AIR system---hose connection/s. You have ruled out the fuel pressure and pump so eliminate that from the causes. You have checked the o2 sensors so they can be ruled out. The MAF has been checked so rule that out. You are left with the AIR sensor and VAF sensor. and last the intake/ exhaust leaks. Check the gaskets on the exhaust manifold and the bolts are tight. Check for cracks in the manifold underneath. Check the cat converter for correct operation as that will affect the O2 sensor readings. Lastly if you have replaced any sensors with non genuine items they may be affecting the cpu checking processes and affecting the engine settings for economy. Ford and GMC have a mixture of OB2 and their OEM computer readings so you may have to talk with a ford service department to get that answer for 21

2005 H2 SUT problems

how often is the belt breaking? excess revolutions can cause premature wear. flushing the cooling system with the proper cleaners, refilling with dexcool and DISTILLED water can reduce the engine temp in h1's by at least 10 degrees in the desert. this i have done. also if the cooler for the transmission has not been upgraded to handle the new trans you will still get an overheat. you can also put a electric fan on the trans cooler. the belt may not be aligned properly.
