 New Holland TC45D Fluid leaks

I haven't been using my Boomer much lately, mostly finish mowing, but noticed on the wood floor of the barn a few drops of antifreeze, and some oil from the front axle. 135 hours, 1 month left of warranty...suggestions?

For starters, I would strip the cowlings and panels down and make note of the suspected leak areas to determine if possible where the leaks are or if they may be normal (such as coolant expansion venting)or you may luck out and find a loose fitting or clamp. Then give the tractor a thorough pressure washer cleaning and degreasing. Take the tractor out and operate it for an hour of so to get everything good and hot. Check these previously noted areas to see if they are indeed still leaking. The front axle should not be leaking oil. Is is possible that the oil on the axle is residue from the engine crankcase vent tube? The one on my Cummins makes a mess I have to clean every oil change. Contact your dealer to get these issues and concerns on the record so in the event he can't get you in right away; you are still covered under warranty since you brought these issues to their attention during the warranty period.

Thanks, Chief, I see a lot of helpful info that you post on this site. I haven't had a chance to investigate further, but was concerned when I saw the leaks. I will check out the areas you mentioned, and let everyone know...

 New Holland TC45D Fluid leaks

I have a small antifreeze leak on my TC45. I have not found where it is coming from. My tractor is due for the 50 hour service, so I will let you know what I hear after they take a look at it.

I have just been keeping the radiator and reservoir topped off with fluid, but it is still annoying. I have lost not more than half a gallon of fluid in 50 hours, but I do occasionally see droplets on the floor.

I used to use an old laundry product called liquid bluing to find leaks. A bottle in the rad and after some running the leak has a blue residue around it. I don't know if liquid bluing still exists or how it would mix with current coolants. It was a poor man's pressure test, which is a better way to find leaks.

A little red food coloring might work well too. I personally would not wash the engine with a power washer. You dont want to cause more damage. It seems a split descion on to or not to power wash but with a pending warraty issue I sure wouldn't take any chances. Besides, once you remove your panels the areas where there is excessive areas of dirt/grime etc should be the ones that draw your attention when looking for a leak. If you wash it all away first if can leave you with fewer clues to the source of the problem. Especially with a collant leak. Some how high pressure spray and radiators seem like a poor idea.

I do agree with not using the pressure washer on engines. Oil seals and so forth are designed to keep oil in and don't work well to keep high velocity water out.

I used to race motorcycles in the California desert and the debate about pressure washers or coin operated car washes was alive and well even then. The bottom line is that the guys that would clean off their motorcycle engines at teh car wash may have looked better when the bikes were new, but after a couple of seasons the insides of the motor had rust where the ones that were left "dirty" looked much better inside and generally required fewer repairs.

I have been very careful with my pressure washer since that time. I certainly avoid any area where high pressure water could come near any vent or shaft seal.

Geez! Never thought of that! I use a power washer on my engine about once a month. If I didn't, the engine would be extremely hard to inspect and do maintenance on. Heck, it would be extremely hard to FIND!

Bobad, is your engine leaking fluid that is causing it to get so dirty, or is it mud and other dirt?

 New Holland TC45D Fluid leaks

Just a quick follow up, and thanks for all your input, I appreciate the help since I am new to the compact tractor world! I've got the local dealer picking it up this week, unfortunately, I have what appears to be hydraulic oil all over the place, not sure where the leak is. I'll update later.
