I got a call today from a very good customer, that has a fleet of trucks.
He tells me that one of his international bobtail trucks is having trouble the driver is having to add water everyday any ideas
I said yes, first we test and not guess !!!
I tell him a quick pressue test and we can check for external leaks first and if we dont find it, we will take a oil sample and have it checked for coolent in the oil.
If we have coolent in the oil we will drop the pan and do a second presure test and check for a leaking sleeve or a pin hole in the sleeve. If thats good we may have a injector copper in the head.
He tells me that sounds good only one problem the driver took the motor all apart and its a basket case and he in way over his head and I need the truck up and running ASAP
