Gave a system service warning about the Had to shut off truck and then it would return to 2X. There were a couple of owners who had bad experiences, but they seemed to be isolated, more extreme cases. That is the essence of feedback: when something generated by a system gets re-introduced into that system and is made more intense by the operation of the system. The turbocharger vane position parameter can also be monitored by the scan tool. I had begun to map out an air-to-liquid intercooler — intending to remove the factory air-to-air unit and substitute a liquid heat exchanger — that would allow better airflow in the cooling stack. Homelink transmitter will not hold code for longer than a month.
Scraping noise heard when applying brakes. Needless to say I was very pissed. I say new, it was replaced when all my overheating issues started. Facing the Killer There is something tangible about the character of Killer Hill. Over time it will break down from the many heating and cooling cycles it endures on a daily basis. Take off the edge before it does damage and you get a big repair bill. It did it again yesterday.
The biggest problem I dealt with was the loss of 2nd, 4th, and reverse. That in itself is not a good thing — remember the hotrodder principle: cold air is best for power — but it is only the beginning of the thermal feedback loop. The radiator was cleaned and no more overheating. Now, mind you i do most of my own stuff, but i had ball joints put on one day and just brought the filter and fluid with me and asked him to change it while it was up. Above that speed, there was always enough airflow over the radiator to keep the engine quite cool. My hope for a scapegoat was dashed: no debris or restrictions. Additionally, you can buy an aftermarket cooler that comes equipped with its own electrical fan.
The line on the bottom drivers side was touchable and the line on the passenger side top and bottom weren't hot at all. It went through two cycles where it gurgled and some antifreeze came out of the overflow pipe. All info indicates they are much more efficient and flow better than the old style tube and fin coolers. The superheated air ends up being cooled by the intercooler, this time causing the ambient air that flows over the intercooler to get much hotter. . However, there was another concern that made me hesitate: dust. McGee is licensed to practice law in the State of California.
Every 20 degree about this temperature will cut the life span of the transmission by a factor of two. It's not fun to spend more money on top of the cost of the trans but it's better then ruining a new transmission. This means less heat for the intercooler which also means less heated air sent to the radiator. We headed out for a camping trip in southern British Columbia. In the rare event that you need to contact the company that re-manufactures transmissions, they are just a quick.
Found fuel line contacting firewall. I'd simply drop the pan, change the filter and refill. You can call us, or use our convenient free case evaluation form below. Here are a few recommended upgrades: Fluid upgrade:. First, a deep pan will add an additional two — three quarts of fluid capacity to your transmission. He's ordering a Radiator in the morning that comes with a Tranny Cooler and Oil Cooler.
So, the easy, almost-free method was not feasible. If a decision has to be made to replace the transmission, I highly recommend you consider a as your first choice. Synthetic fluids are designed not to break down like organic fluids. A turbocharger has a similar parasitic effect, yet it is more efficient because it uses some of the waste heat energy in the exhaust system. The Problem was the Radiator and the Convertor. Eventually, just within sight of the top of the hill, I was forced to back down. Wish I had a diagram for the cooling lines of the Tranny.
The disappointment was my cooling fan: it engaged far too often for my satisfaction. That, in itself, was an impressive change. The transmission temperature did not rise fast and did not exceed 220 degrees, which is still too hot on an 85 degree day. To improve my lot, I got into the habit of running every hill: accelerating before the base of the hill and backing out slightly as I climbed. I have put off for 2 years by keeping transfer case in Auto. I would think a rubber line would be fine since you see a lot of race cars and hot rods using rubber lines to their transmission coolers.
At the elbow — where it bends into the turbo inlet — there is a sharp, 90º corner on the inside radius. That change, however, made enough of an improvement to reduce the heat rejection of the intercooler significantly, allowing the radiator, in turn, to work better. Something had to be done. Air filters, in themselves, could provide a lengthy discussion for another article, but let me sum up with a couple of pictures. Seems like fluid is getting stuck in that area and theres no circulation. The 4L60E was used in the trucks, trucks, the Caprice and the smaller. I could not do much about the air temperature so I needed a considerably higher altitude.
