CUMMINS VGT TURBO – PREVENT TURBO FAILURE

THREE POINTS:

  1. Premature VGT Turbo failure is easy to prevent
  2. Quick and easy maintenance will prevent expensive turbo replacements
  3. Stop throwing away time and money on preventable issues

In addition to premature DPF failure, another common emission system problem fleets are facing is premature turbo failure. It is common place for fleets to replace VGT turbo’s multiple times on the same truck. Frustratingly, this is often without explanation from the dealership, who eagerly provides the warranty repair. Let’s face it, while a warranty repair might save a little out-of-pocket, its the downtime related to the repair that is financially crippling to fleets.

Prevent Turbo Failure with Basic Maintenanceprevent turbo failure-Cummins VGT

Premature VGT Turbo failure can be prevented. Just like when we talk about premature DPF failure, premature turbo failure is when your turbo fails before its expected life. Not surprisingly, this happens frequently with emission compliant trucks. There are a few factors that contribute to this, but the good news is it is possible to prevent turbo failure through Aftertreatment specific basic maintenance.

Diesel Fleet Solutions specializes in providing Cummins Aftertreatment specific training for your technicians. With Cummins Insite software, and our training, your technicians will learn how to prevent turbo failure due to common emission system issues.

Do You Know What Red Flags to Look For?

When it comes to being able to prevent turbo failure, do you know what red flags to look for? There are tell-tale signs when your turbo has been overworked. Overtime it will lose efficiency. Eventually, it will cause your DPF to plug and truck to de-rate. Cummins Insite provides important data that we can teach you how to understand. This allows your technicians to diagnose and correct the root cause of the issue, before your turbo fails. Typically, these problems are related to improper ECM programming and incorrect Aftertreatment settings. This becomes a simple and quick fix when you go through our Rapid Troubleshooting and Diagnostics training.
