I need your advice on this, the transmission of my John Deere 5310 tractor is heated with only 20-30 minutes running a Bush Hog. He has been doing this since I bought it used 2 years ago, I checked the screen, I changed the oil from the transmission, and the transmission filter. As I just notice it after cleaning, today I have checked the bearings of the strength and do not seem to be bad (they are not loose and rotate freely). It is heated so much that the transmission throws smoke. My hydraulic pump seems to have a very slow leak but not enough to see her fall.
Any idea about what you have to check is very appreciated.
I did not use trans oil John Deere Trans when I changed it, does that have something to do?
The hydraulic system of models 5210 and 5310 is equipped with 12 cc pumps and 20 cc of external gear and constant displacement. The 12 cc pump, from behind, provides the power of the fluid to the steering system assisted and to lubricate the transmission. That said, how is the assisted address? In my 5210 that MWFD has, I can tell you that it goes more easily than my car, if you need a reference.
Have you checked that brakes have no problems? In flat ground with the loader and the 3-pt above I have no problems to push the tractor forward and backward.
You may want to get a technical manual.
My transmission is the SyncShuttle Collarshift and only to rinse that the rear housing is the one that is extremely heated and smoke. Also, when it is hot and I open the filling mouth of the transmission, smoke comes out. I have all the oil emptied since I checked the bearing of the strength and I do not intend to use it until I find the problem.
Since the front hydraulic pumps are those that essentially cool the transmission, how can I check that it works? Or how does the assisted address work, can I assume that it is okay?
I wonder if the transmission oil would heat whether whether a hydraulic lever is stuck, like the Joystick lever of the SCV. Any idea how I could try if the pump is open? I also notice that when I use the joystick SCV lever it seems to make a reaction in the actual engine, as it jams a bit. When I say use I mean that there is nothing hooked that I control but move it in each direction. This could be normal, so I’m not sure if it’s about work observation. I’m not sure if there would be a way to disconnect it and try it, etc.
Another thing to try or ways to try some probable causes? Also, it seems that I have to add the oil back to the test, but if there is something I have to look while I have it drained and the back cover of the strength out to let me know. It seems that it is only heated when it is corched, but that is really the only thing I do with it at this time. That’s why I’ve looked at the bearings of the force, but all the bearings seem to be tightened in the back.
Here is something else to check, you may not be related but it’s worth checking it.
In the new 5045e of my father (basically the same tractor as your 5310) it does a rare thing when you raise the 3-point coupling. Let’s say that the pork bush is on the floor and lifts it up to the desired height. When this is done, the engine is also slightly when the 3-point coupling is raised (by the power needed to operate the load pump), which should be normal. What is unusual is that it continues very slightly dragging once the 3PT is in the desired height until you hit the 3PT lever down just a touch. You do not even have to move the lever enough so that the 3pt is down, but for some reason it is not taking all the load of the hydraulic system when it goes up and stops by itself. I’m not sure if that was a good explanation or not, but if you are doing this you should be able to play with it and see what I mean.
That said, in our case it doesn’t seem to be enough to warm up the hydraulic fluid, but I suppose it could in a more serious case.
Does your oil darken?Or do you smell something like a burning smell?
If it’s not as Verticaltrx comments, it could be steam.The hydraulic oil I have read that it is made to absorb water, it usually starts to turn a light green color.It is quite possible that you are not working the tractor hard enough most of the time to remove the condensation water.So when you work hard, steam is what you see.
