Upon starting the temp gauge goes to maximum, above the "H". Upon checking the water in the tank above the radiator
, we found it to be empty. Traced this loss of water to a core or freeze plug which drips when engine is off so we assume it loses it a lot quicker under pressure. Replacement plugs are a pound each and I'll order some when we narrow down what else we need.
The glow plug light has stopped coming on when I turn the key. I have been looking at engine diagrams and exploded view of the glow plug system and looking at the engine, what I think are the glow plugs have an electrical connection next to each one. At least one of these pointed plug looking components is disconnected and rusted, in need of replacement. Just haven't worked out what this part is called yet and need to explore how to extract them including if they break off.
I have been told to locate the temperature sensor at the front of the engine somewhere and also a black or grey box somewhere at the rear of the engine which ought to have two (red?) wires into it.
We have had the thermostat out and boiled it in a saucepan. It clicked open and closed under heat.
That is about as far as I have gone so far Tim and I am now away until the weekend. Any involvement you can give will be appreciated. As to the payment for your services, I am not sure whether I am running up a bill here or if my account is active, with which I have registered my details and opted for the £33 package after the free trial. For clarity, could you confirm that we are within my trial period?
I look forward to getting down to it and getting my RV running again.Cheers ***** ***** Tim.Steve
