Hi my name is Robert.....
Are these return lines on the Aquahot or on the radiator? Did you have the engine coolant serviced?
IS the Aqua Hot blowing hot air in all zones? What Engine do you have on your Dynasty?
Wanted to ask about the aquahot as the engine coolant does in fact run through the auquahot and sometimes air can get trapped in the system, if that was the case then you might not get hot air coming out for your heating.
On the actual radiator you should have a top and bottom hose, can you feel flow through both of them? And just so I am clear you see two lines on the surge tank? Normally one would be a return and the other will vent to the ground....
It is possible the third is for the aqua hot system.
I am not sure if changing the coolant has anything to do with this if the transmission temp is running higher....
Have you checked the level for the transmission? Did you get a high temp alarm for the trans? How hot was it?
What I might do is go to the aqua hot, on the aqua hot will be some check valves, click HERE see page 24. I have seen an issue before if the air is not bleed from the aqua hot while doing the coolant service it can cause issues. I might start the engine and then go open the check valves and see if you get air coming out, if so let the air bleed off and then tighten them back up when you get flow.
IF you had an air pocket it could cause the issue you are having. On some of these engines they also used a coolant filter, it would be on the side of the engine next to the oil filter, on the housing for the filter is a valve, make sure the valve is open, they can be a pain to get at and the the valve handle should be running with the pipe. Also in that location make sure there is not another coolant valve, that valve would be round. The other issue would be if the coolant level was low.Many times when you do a coolant service you have to run the engine or test drive it so the thermostat opens up which means you have to add more coolant after a service. The coolant level should be at the proper mark in the tank.
I might get this looked at again and make contact with the shop that did the work to see if they would be willing to have this looked at somewhere close to you....
IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me... Robert
Understand and I am going off the fact the engine coolant was just changed it could be other items as well. So if it is nothing I mentioned I would really have it looked at...
