Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I'm an independent contractor here at Just Answer.

Overheating a diesel is not good. The first thing we need to do is a compression test to see if the head gaskets or heads have failed from it running to hot.

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

You should see a rating screen if I have posted an answer, not for an info request.

Your rating is my feedback. If I don't get feedback from customers, I will not be able to continue helping customers here.

Rating me good, bad, or not rating at all does not effect the fee you have paid nor does it close the post.

Follow up/Reply as many times as needed.
