High Coolant Temp. Light

Last weekend on the way back from the Pinks All Out drag race, the High Coolant Temp., Service Engine & Shutdown Engine lights illuminated. In the effort to make a long stressful story short, the bolts holding the fan hub had sheared off and the fan was no longer operating. Frieghtliner is fixing the problem under warranty.

Note to those interested: The High Coolant Temp. Light comes in at 225 degrees, the Service Engine Light comes in at 230 degrees and the Shutdown Engine Light comes in at 238 degrees.
