I have done everything I can think of to solve this problem-removed thermstat,replaced water pump,checked radiator caps,flushed water system,removed all hoses for inspection,installed temp guage,bled air from system,jumped fan to run constantly. This mule will circulate water just fine for some time then stops, have to bled system-pumps sometimes for couple hundred yards then same thing again. From cold start does good for maybe a mile if you are sure it is circulating then same thing again. Carb. heater was stoped up but have good flow now. HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP ME ON THIS.

98 Mule 2510-overheating

Thanks for the replys---I believe I solved my problem this morning. Reading through the threads last nite I saw a coment about water not around fan sensor to make fan run. This morning I jacked front up as high as I could-poured water in radiator-pulled carb heater return hose to water pump until ran full stream,left pressure cap under seat installed,let it set while I was gone.When I returned added a little water to the radiator untill it was overflowing and closed the system. I had installed a tempture guage previously. Inital start up-fan came on at 220% and then off at 190%.Now after driving some distance its on at 250% and off at 220% but runs good and is not overheating.Thanks to the treads for I had given up but it gave me one more thing to try Iwas not getting enough water in the system. Thanks again for your help.
