My sons Clutch would not engage or for that matter it would not do anything

You didn't use DOT5 brake fluid did you. DOT5 brake will swell some types of rubber and aerate the fluid which becomes compressible.

Whining sound jd 4510 four wheel drive

accord to my books this tractor has a wet clutch transmission (12 speed) , first thing is to ck your fluid level in transmission , this is bit hard to reach on this one but is possible second obtain a small sample of fluid from transmission, have it tested , It can tell you alot , second you mention that hydraulic pump overloads engine with simple tasks like raise 3-point, this could be a stuck pressure relief valve due to yep you guessed it dirty filter (it bypassed itself) ck hyd fluid for proper level and clarity ohh and one more thing this tractor uses hyd pump for power steering (some others have 2nd pump for this) is it possible that noise is coming from that area , cus I have had to replace power steering valve on that model once for a loud Noise reason
remember if your gonna have a all hydro tractor save yourself a lot of grief and periodly wash shaft seals with water sure saves a lot of grief and leaks !!

Gilare runner st 200 my 2008 runner 200 st won't start after heavy rain.

The ignition components are getting wet and the Ignition charge is being discharged down the side of the wires and not through the spark plugs are required. The next time it does not start in the wet, try spraying all the spark plug wires with wd40 and if it fires up, replace the ignition wires.

My toyota rav 4 is overheating iit is boiling from the reservoirtank what can i do l have changed the radiator and the thermostat checked all the hoses but it is still boiling can you help me please

Check fan operation. It should come on at approximately 102 degrees celcius.Which fan drive do you have? The older RAV 4 has a hydraulically driven fan while the later models have an electric fan. Both are "turned on by the computer". So check for the thermo sensor at the coolant outlet from the engine. As it gets toward boiling point you should find a lowered resistance of approximately 200 - 300 Ohms there. When cold these sensors run in excess of 2500 Ohms.On the older models with the hydraulic drive it is provided with hydraulic pressure from a pump in the transmission. Check for transmission fluid level and pump operation by loosening off the supply hose and starting the engine in neutral. If the pump is inoperative no oil will be supplied to the hydraulic fan motor. Happy hunting.

High pressure fluid is present in operational hydraulic systems. Fluids under high pressure are dangerous and can cause serious injury or death. Do not make modifications, repairs or adjustments to any hydraulic system unless you are competent or working under competent supervision. If in doubt consult a qualified technician or engineer.
