Craftsman Pro Series tractor Kohler engine issue
Started having issues a couple weeks ago, tractor is on extended warranty. They cam today and said its leaking oil and needs a new gasket and a new cylinder. The tractor is less than a year and a half old and has less than 38 hours on it. I want to push for a full engine replacement as I think its really weird to have such a major issue so soon.... and wont the other cylinder be compromised and just a matter of time if one cylinder is bad, the gasket is bad and its leaking oil?
Re: Craftsman Pro Series tractor Kohler engine issue
Probably want be a problem but you replace cylinder you probably referring to cylinder head as the cylinders are part of the crankcase; therefore if one is bad both would get replaced.
But we could stand having the Kohler model and spec number so we would know what you have engine wise.
BTW I seldom ever do need to both cylinder heads on a twin cylinder engine. I do suspect that one of the heads is out tolerance warpage wise which is why they are looking at replacing it. Some Kohler engines use a thin all metal head gasket which can't seal well if the head is warped too much.
