Breakdown

Her I sit wondering…My tractor had a minor breakdown (a sensor for the coolant went out.  Now even though this sounds minor and simple to repair, It could possible missing a day of work. The shop just happens not to have the sensor.

When the truck’s water temp gets over 200 degrees, the check engine light comes on, then the engine starts to degrade power and eventually shuts down and will not restart until the temp drops back down. This is a safety feature to prevent engine damage. The fault codes the truck gives, says that coolant is low, However, it is not.

I am hoping that the can get the part in the next 10 hours so I can get back to work after my DOT mandated break.
