    Lister stw3 overheating?

    Great news, she didn't sound stressed to me. Guess like the temp gauge the rev counter is faulty too. Previous owner really didn't keep things maintained. Glad all engine worries seem resolved now, it's been a rocky period with overheating problems, diesel bug, then air lock in fuel system, then temp gauge, impeller now all seems resolved. Hoping I can concentrate on other things that need doing now. It's been harsh introduction to owning a narrow boat but I've learnt loads to hopefully be more proactive and prevent problems occuring in the future. I appreciate people taking the time to give me help and advice, great forum!

    I have a clip cruising but it's too large to attach here, if you can pm perhaps I can send it via email?

    My rev counter must be faulty too as goes well over 3000. It does jump up and down and doesn't work often

    Lister stw3 overheating?

    Hi all Had new sensor and temp gauge fitted and the engine ran for about an hour at about 2500 revs, got up 90 degrees. Left Aldridge marina today after work (hooray and good riddance, not more to say) and traveled 4.5 miles, didn't go over 2500 revs but she did get close to 100 degrees but did not boil like before with coolant squirting out expansion, knocked her down at 100 and she cooled and seems steady at around 90. Does this sound normal. at an average of 2000 revs it makes very slow going indeed as took me almost 4 hours to do 4.5 miles and two locks solo?

    Getting temp sensor and gauge looked at this pm. No sign of any other problems, start easy, does not lose oil, oil filler cap has no mayonnaise looking residue. Hopefully the mechanic attending can advise me on what the problem is and I can put all the faults I inherited behind me!

    There are no visible leaks in engine bay. I don't really know how to check coolant level besides removing filer tap on top of expansion tank and peering down there? It's easy to start. The temp gauge does not work. I haven't removed oil filter yet.
  12. Hi all Since I bought the boat 1.5 years ago, it's always got very hot whilst under strain. Coolant steam comes out expansion tank valve and occasionally squirts out. It's keep cooled and checked impeller before and all seems ok? Do they just get very hot or there likely to be a fault? Thanks

    Lister STW3 injector fuel bleed

    I'm in Aldridge marina, Walsall. Not that mechanical tbh so looking for someone who knows how to resolve what I think is not a major problem. He showed me where the injector bleed values are and why he couldn't reach them without major removal of parts. Tried easy start with no success. He was with me for 2 hours and he did try hard.
