Still over heating: no coolant flow, boiling coolant
I have tried to search and found many useful topics but non have fixed my problem.
Over the last several months I have been running a touch hot, only at idle, itís ok moving and fine moving over 30.
It has sat for the last month, now it over heats like a champ. Setting still or at 40mph+. So I have ruled out fan clutch, as I seem to have reasonable resistance when itís wormed up, some (less) resistance when it cold. And the thing does not cool at higher speeds
With cold jeep, I opened the cap, cranked it, and watched the fluid, it does nothing, I canít ďseeĒ it flow. So I changed the t-state. Still now flow. How obvious is the flow? I did loosen a hose, and it was a gusher, so it think itís pumping, but I should be able to see it from the cap, right?
Itís officially boiling, if I let it.
This is a scrambler and I think all scramblers have the v-belt. How can I tell what pump I have (backwards pump)?, I canít find a good picture or diagram so I can visually tell with out pulling it? but again, gusher with lose hoes
Should I flush? I know it will help, but I canít image it makes that much difference, itís not cooling at all, flush would help if it was barely cooling, right?
I donít think I have coolant in my oil, I should be able to tell on my dip stick? Or should I change the oil for a better look?
