Re: Engine overheating - Amel54

I don’t think one should hear gurgling after the first few seconds of engine runtime. To me, continuous gurgling is a sign of an air leak somewhere in the raw water circuit.
When it was happening to us, we eventually found the source of the air leak as being at the anchor wash check valve, letting air enter the circuit from the outlet at the bow. One easy way to check that is to tape over that outlet and hear the gurgling disappear.
I don’t know if such an air leak could be enough to explain a overheating engine though.

Here is a snippet from my book, My guess is that there is debris on the front end of the ZF transmission oil cooler. Read and do this cleaning and let me know.
