The Cummins engine is a workhorse. It’s generally reliable, but as with other engines, it does need maintenance and repair. And Independent Auto and Diesel Repair is your top choice for Cummins diesel repair in Jamestown, TN.
Cummins is a reliable diesel engine but has issues like other diesel or gas engines. Some of the common problems that will require the services of a diesel mechanic include the following:
Malfunctioning turbos can cause low performance, excessive oil consumption, loss of power, and excessive smoke. One common issue with turbochargers is a loose shaft.
Engines produce a toxic chemical called nitrogen oxide (NO). The EGR (exhaust gas recirculation system) returns NO and other gases into the engine to reduce them. The most common part of the EGR system that needs repair is the EGR valve. A malfunctioning valve often causes engine performance issues and a rough idle.
The camshaft opens and closes the valves, allowing a combination of air and diesel fuel into the engine and pushing the spent fuel out through the exhaust. If the engine does not have the proper oil pressure, the rockers could slap the camshaft’s lobes and eventually flatten them. If this happens, you need a diesel repair specialist to replace the camshaft.
