Question about John Deere 420,1020,2010,2020,2510,2520 Tractor Float
Just started smoking from the top of the radiator, thought at first the water pump, or clogged radiator. To check the thermostat I removed thermostat and ran without it. No change. Flushed radiator, and checked to make sure fluid was moving through the water pump. Next noticed that the battery was dead also. Figured a short somewhere was affecting both the cooling system and battery. Contacted JD mechanic for advice. He thought maybe the relay was dead.(the fan to cool the radiator was not turning on.) Tried new relay with no avail. Now think it may be themperature sensor. Can these short out and do you suggest any more tests? Thanks a million.
My thought is that you may have a burned out temperature sensor on your radiator. You can find this by simply looking for a plug on the radiator that has a wire chassis connected to it. these things can burn out rather easy and it could have been effected by being hit by debris or other objects that could have caused the sensor to short out. Replace the temp sensor. Usually located near or at the bottom of the radiator. Hope this helps.

John Deere will replace the lines with the original under warranty but as soon as your warranty runs out and you develop a leak go to solid rubber after market fuel lines and your problems will be over.The braided fuel line that is put on at the factory and replaced by Deere under warranty has a poor performance record and i would replace it,Deere can't get warranty for the repair unless the part replaced has a J.D. part number on it,but if you are willing to supply the hose,go rubber and the leaking will end.

I'm getting hydralic fluid in my engine oil. I was told that it's coming from my power steering unit. It's a JD 400 tractor/backhoe. Would this be correct?
