Antifreeze loss

Yesterday, was fixing to load the Teryx, and an odd noise was coming from it. I was thinking maybe a stick hung in the frame hitting the front drive line. I circled around and loaded the Teryx on the trailerÖ..then I saw antifreeze coming out the bottom.

Today I tried to find the problem, and I see none, except it needs some antifreeze. The leak, or lossÖ.appears to maybe have come out of overflow, just not sure. Also donít know how low it is, havenít added any back yet. Maybe after I add some, I might see an issue, but kind of doubting that.

Anyone of ideas what was going on here? Teryx has 140+ hoursÖ.havenít had any issues of this type up to this point.

Well my friend, I tried and tried to purge my cooling system only to attempt to ride today to get a red light on the dash. Thought maybe there was air in the system, however, someone I talk to out on the trail really thought it was the thermostat.

Mine was low after about 20 hours. When I changed the oil, I noticed a hose leaking right next to the oil filter. The clamp was loose from the factory. It lost about a cup or so in 20 hours of operation.

Ya there are no leaks on mine, just coolant spitting out of the top of the radiator. I am done messing with it and burning my hands from hot coolant....will let the dealer worry about it when they are replacing the seal on the front diff.

I just let the Teryx idle, then did other things. After awhile I heard that same noise I heard at the ranch. It was gurgling from the fill up point on the radiator. Then I found the water/temp display flashing, which is NOT noticeable at ALL, at least to me. Itís not a light, just within that small digital display, a flashing symbol. Fan was not coming on. I found a breaker, and it was tripped. Reset, it, then idled for quite awhile with the fan cycling on/off.

Now I wonder what caused it to trip in the first place? But for now, seems to be back to normal.

Diesel where is this coolant coming from on top of the radiator??
