    2009 kubota b3200 tractor with HST 4cyl diesel

    I think you're right. I tried the charger on my truck this morning and it did the exact same thing again. Tractor still starts, so I believe the corrosion of the cable ends was the problem of the no start and the battery is 6 yrs old. I won't be using the charger again since it's 30 y o. Thanks...

    2009 kubota b3200 tractor with HST 4cyl diesel

    Thanks for replying back Bill. So far it still starts okay, I started it again this morning. I think the no crank issue might have been related to the corroded terminals and the battery is six y o also. There may be a problem with the charger because I tried it on my truck and it did the same...

    2009 kubota b3200 tractor with HST 4cyl diesel

    Had a no crank situation 2 days ago after using tractor for maybe 30 mins or so. Tried to attach charger/ starter to battery + first without plugging into the power. A nasty park shot out from the clamp of charger when I tried connecting to positive side of battery. Nothing else even connected...

    Whistle at highway speed

    No sunroof, bed cap, or ladder rack. I haven't noticed any whistle meeting a truck. This doesn't seem to hurt anything, but it's definitely annoying, especially on a long trip on the interstate

    Whistle at highway speed

    Same, doesn’t matter. Crack a window say going under an overpass and it sounds really loud.

    Whistle at highway speed

    I own a 2005 f150 super crew p/u. At speeds typically 55+ I have this annoying sounding whistle coming from the front end somewhere. It's definitely audible in the cab. Anyone have an idea what this is or have ever heard of this? Thanks

    Sonic coolant consumption

    Sorry it took so long to get back with outcome, life happens. The car is fixed. It was the radiator. No more coolant smell. Thanks for everyone's help.

    Sonic coolant consumption

    Yes, 7/31/18. I didn’t type that right, it might have sounded confusing. I’ll try the pressure tester first. I think I can get one. Does the tool put positive pressure on the system or a vacuum? So either way it will leak down if I have a leak in the system right? If the system gets flushed out...

    Sonic coolant consumption

    I didn’t realize it vaporized that quick, but that makes sense. I don’t have a way of pressurizing it here, so it looks like I’ll have to get it pressure checked or even fixed by a reputable shop. It has to get done somehow, it’s not going to get better. I was contemplating selling the car, but...

    Sonic coolant consumption

    I just got back and left car running and looked all around the water outlet and water pump area for any signs of leaks with an inspection mirror and a good light. Nothing wet. But, I did find on the upper left hand side of radiator where the plastic tank is mounted to the core, a rust colored...

    Sonic coolant consumption

    It looks like the wing tore off causing the car to go out of control. I was at an NHRA race one time when the rear wing tore off a top fuel dragster, it wasn't good
