It couldnt have happened at a worse place or time. It overheated and went into limp on a narrow part of the trans Canada in glacier national park. It has been towed hope the motor isnt fried. On second thought my family is lucky to be alive had a few narrow misses with big trucks.

Any ideas as to what happened? How long and how many miles have you had it for? That really sucks, sounds like youre on a vacation as well, I hope it gets sorted out quickly.

Hey thanks, it has about 5000miles, it boiled the coolant out from somewhere. It happened in a construction zone I had to drive quite a way to find a reasonably safe spot to turn off. There are a lot of “recently Canadian” truck drivers here, they pass on the shoulders because they have no idea what they are doing. It was quite an experience. Lincoln roadside assistance was great thankfully I had cell service.

The problem was an improperly installed hose clamp, human error from the factory. So the clamp will be reinstalled and I’ll be sent on my way with a boiled motor. To say that I’m disappointed is an understatement.

I wouldnt worry about engine damage. For one you have a 7/70 Powertrain warranty and if something was damaged it will show well before then. Also, those engines have fail safe cooling and go into a cylinder head protection mode when overheated. I hate that it happened and glad everyone is ok, but I wouldnt worry too much about damage. Remember the Cadillac North Star commercials with the drive 50 miles with no coolant. Same theory here.

Exactly.   It sucks and was terribly inconvenient but should not be an ongoing concern.

It’ll probably be better after the fix, the engine fan was always running and I had no idea why.

So did your fan ever run when the engine was off? Mine came on today in the garage a couple minutes after turning off the engine, scared me to death. I started the vehicle and let it run about 30 seconds and shut it down and the fan didnt come back on after that.

Could be turbo related maybe?
I had a S-Class that started doing that after a dealer service. Turned out that tech forget to refill one of the turbocharger coolant tanks; so the fan started running even after the engine was turned off in order to keep turbo cool...

Interesting since I just had the first service done two days ago. Ill ceck the manual for any serviceable reservoirs and check them.

FYI the cooling is all one system.
