Section 27.3.1.1
Test Engine with Replaced Pressure Control Cap

Perform the following to determine if exterior radiator repair resolved high engine coolant temperature: ‪

  1. Start and run the engine.
  2. Run the engine through its operating range with no-load for approximately 5 minutes, allowing the engine coolant to reach normal operating range.
    1. If the engine coolant temperature is normal, no further troubleshooting is required. Shut the engine down.
    2. If the engine coolant temperature is not normal, shut the engine down. Check coolant hoses; refer to "27.4 Defective Coolant Hoses" .
