    Default John Deere 5055E Oil Leaking???

    Hi;
    I have a newer John Deere 5055E. Recently, I've been working in some pretty dusty conditions and pulled the hood to have a gander at oil and coolant levels. I noticed that, while a newer tractor, the coolant levels had diminished quite a bit in 25-hours. Also noticed that there was oil around EVERY seal on the tractor. I was wondering if this was something that's "normal" for the newer tractors????? or do I need my dealer to c'mon over and have a gander at this thing? Also, is it normal for the unit to consume roughly a 1/2 gallon of coolant in 25-hours of operation - at least when it's first new?

    I'm more just wondering if I'm being paranoid, or if there's something seriously wrong with this just off the assembly line?

    Thanks.

    Dar

    Coolant should never be consumed. Did you check it warm or cold though? Remember, it's going to "fill up" a bit as it gets warmer.

    As far as oil leaks, I would clean it off, run it for a bit, and see what yuo find. I could see some oil in areas like that during assembly, but it shouldn't continue to leak. Worth a wipedown and then re-check after an hour or so.
    The forums are a great place to find information....but also a great place to find speculation. Only you can determine the real problems with your tractor. We're here to help you find the correct way to do it.
