Overheating 995

Post by staffstractorboy » Mon Jan 07, 2013 9:22 am

I wonder if anyone can help? My newly bought 995 appears to be overheating and I'm trying to trace the fault. After about 15 mins the gauge goes into the red. I've removed the filler cap and whilst the radiator heats up the water remains hand hot. The fan belt is tight enough and the water pump revolves. Oddly when I squeeze the rad bottom hose it doesn't feel as if there's any coolant in it and the top is fairly easy to squeeze too. There I stick my finger into the filler there is no gush of hot water from the top hose & block. I haven't tested the thermostat yet nor removed the pump. What is also odd is that when I've tapped the gauge it has dropped down into the green before returning to the red.

I'd be grateful for any advice, particularly whether this could be a fault with the sensor or gauge

It's possible that the bottom tank of the radiator is blocked with crud. The guage would not operate at all if the sender was at fault unless there was a short in the wiring but that would probably cause the guage to go into the red sector as soon as you turned the key on. Themostat could be stuck but What I would do is to run the tractor until the guage does what it does and then draw off some water from the engine block drain just to see if it's hotter than that in the radiator. Second would be to remove the thermostat and drop it in some boiling water to see if it opens. Thirdly, remove the radiator and get it cleaned out.

I would remove the temp sender and put it in a cup of hot water at a known temp and seewhat the gauge does.

Also why is this in wanted? I've seen several topics moved to here which seem strange.

It was moved FROM "wanted" to the main forum and a "shadow" left in "wanted" so that the original poster could come back to where he posted it and find any comments! Both Admin and I scan the various parts of the forum and move things to more appropriate places if necessary.

I know only too well that I can be looking at something in one part of the forum and then want to post a question in a "new topic" and forget to go to the section of the forum where the topic should be :oops: :oops:

Ahh, my mistake, sorry. Clever system and thanks for the efforts of everyone involved in keeping the place organised. If there are any spare could you send them round to organise my barn?

I doubt you would want me - you should see my garage and sheds. On second thoughts, perhaps not...
