Please find attached the approved oils list which was published by Detroit Diesel.
Detroit Diesel Company is allowing the use of fuel additives to prevent sticking injectors.
Below is taken from the DD operators manual. 14psi or higher at idle is normal. At operating temperature we typically see in the mid-20s at idle and mid-40s to mid-50s while driving, but can go as high as 75psi under load.
This bulletin would not have reached the secondary market, so since I just learned about it, I thought it a good idea to share, please read. The bottom line you could have a fully warrantied engine, but if the above happens and the DOC melts due to the Hydrocarbon not burning off you will 99% of the time pay the $13,000.00 dollar ONE BOX BILL. So try not to idle the engine FOR DAYS on end. The factory will not come to your rescue if you don’t clean your DPF at the factory recommended 350k miles “GIVE OR TAKE”. That’s the rub. Not only is there no way to completely know, you need to clean the unit,(even right after you do an active regen and no codes fire) but claims are being denied at as little as 200k miles in. The reason for the claims being denied is “abuse and neglect” due to high idle times. That is a ridiculous spread of “GIVE and TAKE”. So the bulletin was sent out in 2010, but as of today I have not had any new truck salesmen tell me they knew about the program for burning Hydrocarbon. I have only known about NOX emissions. Be careful out there, this new technology California has given us can be extremely costly to fix even if you are under warranty. I will try to keep you up to date on as much as I can. Please if you would send any information you may obtain my way so that I may share good information to all.
Engaging an active regen with a DD15 Detroitengine is accomplished with 3 simple steps.
