    Hino 338 air conditioner recharge question:)

    Have decided to remove an old under bunk air conditioner unit from our Hino 338 (2008). But before we do, we thought you guys on expediters online could tell us what the approximate cost of recharging the engine a/c system would be. The bunk air conditioner is working just fine, but when we...

    Please i need advice fast.

    Hi Localrunz, Your story is Not an unusual driver experience in the expediting business. You were Run arounded needlessly for a few simple reasons, the dispatcher calling You is working a Bid type load board and is being under bid (most likely reason) on each load they bid on. The dispatchers...

    Question about Hino 338

    I did the combustion gas test and no color change on the test fluid. The oil is fine with no discoloration. I did replace two hose clamps. One that is a spring clamp on a short hose that is running to some sort of heat exchanger on front of engine, top portion, turbo side. And another clamp that...

    Question about Hino 338

    Going to get that Co2 check done next based on your last post. Drove today 4 hours from Atlanta Ga to Knoxville TN and decided to keep the speed low at 53 on the cruise. Way to slow for I-75 but the coolant alarm did not go off when I reached the drop. Coolant was a little high in reservoir but...

    Question about Hino 338

    The photo is of the area on fire wall right side on engine. It may be nothing. I noticed the stain about two months ago and there has been no change as to how the stain looks today.

    Question about Hino 338

    Just finished a load that was 15 miles local driving at 25 to 50 mph speeds. Heard the fan roar a little as you said. At my drop I turned off engine and tried to spin fan and it had resistance, a hard pull on fan blade and it might have turn a quarter turn before stopping, not the free spinning...

    Question about Hino 338

    Thanks so much for your help as I work through this coolant problem. Have been doing short runs lately and have had no alarm problems, but today I did a long run (75 miles) today and as usual the alarm started to singing out on the right hand turns. At my drop while they unloaded I let the...

    Question about Hino 338

    ("I re-read your post. The level in the reservoir rises to a point greater than before and stays there, is that correct? If yes, you have a leak. The leak is small enough not to actively drip, but large enough to allow air to enter the cooling system when the engine is cooling off. The...

    Question about Hino 338

    Not having to add coolant to reservoir. Standing in front of truck looking at engine there seems to be a coolant stain on right rear side of engine fire wall, but do not see anything else. Will get inspection mirror out and see if I can spot some sort of leakage around turbo. Will look at having...

    Question about Hino 338

    Hi, I have been reading this thread about Hino trucks in search for a solution to a engine problem I'm experiencing with a 2008 Hino 338. I'm directing the inquiry to greasytshirt. The low coolant alarm will sound when two things occur, drive for at least 50 miles at normal highway speeds, make...
