Marty and I left for home on the last lag of our journey this morning. When we got to Marysville, I noticed my van’s engine was starting to overheat a little, so I was watching it.
Bad fuse holders
After messing around with things, I discovered two fuse holders on my electric fans were melting from bad connections in them. I replaced one of them and thought the other one was ok, but I was wrong and it bit me later.
Heating up going up long hills
We continued on and when I drove up a long hill, the engine’s temperature climbed until I had to pull over to let the engine cool down to continue. We did that a few times before I found the second fuse holder was bad, so I fixed that, but it didn’t fix the overheating problem.
We changed to roads that didn’t have so many steep hills for the rest of the way home. That worked, but I still have the overheating problem. Maybe a bad thermostat? I’ll have to check things out now that I’m home and it’s easier to work on.
A few hours drive home took all day with the heating problem going on.
We had a great trip exploring the forest in the area we were in.
Once home, I started pulling the stuff I needed right away, out of my van, like the coffee maker.
Nice day, despite the heating problem. I’m home.
