Yanmar 1610d blowing oil

Postby ericb » Sun Sep 12, 2010 12:40 pm

I just purchased a 1610d and within two hours of running the tractor it started blowing oil out of a hose that comes off of the top of the engine. Also when i pull the dipstick oil gushes out. I'm guessing blockage somewhere? oil light has never come on.(still waiting for a call back from the dealer)Anyone have any ideas?

One of three things. 1. Your injection pump has went south and is pouring diesel into your crankcase. 2. Your hydraulic pump seal has gone out and it is leaking hydraulic fluid into your crankcase. 3. Blown head gasket and water is flooding your crankcase. Trouble shoot by looking at fluid levels on these three items. Your going to find one of them low.

I did check the trans/hydro fluid and there was nothing on the dipstick, I added 1.5 gallons of fluid and still nothing. I can't get the tractor into gear. I haven't seen any leaks underneath, must be internal?

Most likely seal on hydraulic pump located front right on engine. http://www.hoyetractor.com/mm5/merchant ... de=1610HYD Does your crankcase oil look like hydraulic fluid?

The oil did have a funny color to it. Hopefully the dealer will cover the repair seeing how they had it in their shop for a week "going over" it prior to delivery.

If the dealer won't help, unless you bought it "as is" you can try to recover your outlay in Small Claims Court. In many jurisdictions there's an "implied warranty," and your tractor's problem doesn't sound like it could be the operator's fault.

Tractor was picked up yesterday and seals on hydro pump are being fixed, thanks for all the info.
