Just woundering who has the most miles. I have 20k on mine know. I work at a dealer and we service a 01 dually with 456,000 :ro) miles on it. Oringinal tranny and engine. Pulls a 40' car trailer all over the country. His hour meter won't even register anymore it shows up in the tech 2 as some crazy decimal.

AWESOME!!! Of course its still on the original drive train...its a Dmax!!

I think HD Rider had 491,000 on his when he sold it...but he was on his second engine I think ONLY because his injectors failed at 300,xxx and dumped so much fuel into the crankcase that it ruined the bearings. Otherwise hed still be on the original engine! Yeah Id love a pic of the odometer...ill save it for posting when a cummins dudecalls the dmax a throw away engine.

Hey guys I get injectors rebuilt all the time, a lot cheaper than new. Look into rebuilding next time your injectors fail.

I don't think you understand. When a Dmax injector fails, it pours fuel into the engine, either hydrolocking it (boom) or "watering down" the crankcase oil, which causes crank to bearing contact (screech, boom).

It's not like a gasser injector that just quits working.

And in addition, the Bosch HPCR injectors and cores have been in short supply and pretty tightly held so far - dealers can't get new ones for waiting replacements. You can't just go to any parts house and "get some injectors rebuilt."

It's my understanding that changing the fuel filter regularly is the best insurance for our injectors. Is there anything else we can do to protect the injectors?

ehh im still not a complete beleiver in that theory...it cant hurt, but still there are trucks with no secondary filtration that have not gone thru any injectors, and then there are trucks who run secondary filtration up the wazoo and get failed injectors...

The cleaner the fuel the longer longevity for the entire fuel system.Specially the Bosch HP expensive systems in diesel today.

Make sure there is sufficient fuel lubricity and stability.

1. Add stanadyne performance formula or stanadyne lubricity formula additives.
2. Use b5 biodiesel blend fuel.
