IS THERE AN ENGINE THAT RUNS ON HYDROGEN?
Your cylinder head is a critical part of your diesel engine. Along with the head gasket, it creates the combustion chamber that allows the combustion process to occur properly.
Is your truck showing signs of low boost, lag, sticking turbo vanes, or throwing actuator failure codes? Learn to recognize these symptoms and take action before you're faced with a larger problem while on the job.
We hear it all the time—VGTs break too easily, and they're too expensive to fix. But what people might not know is that often it's not a fault with the turbo at all. What you're seeing is the result of a bigger problem in your engine.
So, you notice your oil pressure is low. Your automatic response might be to have your oil pump looked at, or to replace it altogether.
We know how frustrating it can be when your cylinder head cracks. You're losing coolant, have compression in your cooling system, or seeing excessive smoke, and you're looking at lost time and money and an expensive repair.
Head bolts might seem like a minor or unimportant part, but without them, combustion wouldn't be possible and your diesel engine wouldn't work. They hold your cylinder head to the engine block and help the head gasket to seal properly.
We know that rebuilding your engine is a time consuming and expensive process. And that's not even mentioning the profits you lose when your engine is out of commission.
As we've mentioned in a previous post, cylinder head damage is a major issue that can cause problems throughout your engine. It's not just cracks that you have to worry about.
