PX-6 and PX-8 medium-duty engines
May 29, 1. Hey guys and gals! I'm just starting this for info to anyone else who runs into this problem. I've got a Cummins ISX hp in a I was pulling doubles outta a Fedex station. It was heavy, with a degree onramp to a upgrade. All was well until the engine boost went from the normal 39 psi to My first reaction was that I was running outta fuel, but I still had gals.
It caught again, ran, then stuttered again. I got over the set of hills and got moving. Didn't feel it again, but then I didn't have the same situation that night. I got ahold of my mechanic, who is a certified cummins technician, and we hashed it out. He came by and plugged the truck in, looking for codes.
This code came up, among others, but they weren't the issue. I ran that night without resolving the issues and it was worse that night.
I called him back and said I really need this taken care of.
He checked and I had 5 codes the first night, but the next night it was like He checked the fuel pressure while the engine is off, that was good, checked everything else and the only it came down to was a bad fuel pump.Having trouble finding your part?

Thread starter Mike Start date Nov 23, Tags cummins detroit paccar volvo volvo trucks. Mike Well-Known Member Staff member. May end up going used, but that is beside the point for now. If you were to buy a brand new truck not a gliderand had the above 4 engines to choose from obviously, a couple of the choices are going to narrow you down to a specific model of truck alsowhich would you choose and why? So far, I am having good luck with the Detroit DD This is currently my 3rd truck with this engine, and it has been a great powerplant in each truck.
Haven't had one in action over K though, so no idea about long term durability. ISX horror stories scare me. Guessing they got most of the bugs worked out at this point, but a little nervous about taking a chance with one.
Cummins ISC / Paccar PX8 (C17-0042)
Would you? Why or why not? Volvo - not really considering it, but it is here for the opinions. Right now, I am leaning toward a Freightliner because of my comfort level with Detroit.
Tim U. Constitution Supporter. With todays sad sack of choices I'd have to go with Detroit. Kiwi Not a fruit. Blood Driveler Emeritus. None of the above. Nothing on the market has been established as reliable for the long term.Log in or Sign up. Find Trucking Jobs. Feb 7, 1. I was assigned a Peterbilt with a paccar engine.
It's making me regen at least once a week for about an hour, I've had to do it 3 days in a row. We have Macks accept for this one truck, so the mechanics don't know anything about it. Someone said that keeping the def full everyday may help, is that true? Is there anything else I can try?
EllersFeb 7, Steel Dragon Thanks this. Yes, let employers and TruckersReport text me with new opportunities, job alerts and other career information to the number I provided. There is no charge for this service, but standard message and data rates may apply. Feb 7, 2. Dpf is full. Or bad sensors. Feb 7, 3. It should regen automatically driving down the road. If your idling at night that could fill the DPF up by morning.
Freightliner has automatic regening when parked. I believe Volvo does the same thing. BrandtFeb 7,
