Re: Extended Warranty for Diesel
[quote="pjpvi"] Short of a total turbo failure, I think I've had all of the common diesel failures.
You've missed the fun of replacing injectors. Pass side means removing the motor mount and lowering the engine to remove the valve cover. That's after the grill, radiator, tubo hoses, alternator, and a bunch of other stuff was removed. 8+ hours of tech time plus reassembly. Then to find an injector out on the other side.
Oh, did I mention the 5 days in a motel in Prince George, BC?
Except for a lack of power, the engine ran fairly well on 6 1/2 cylinders. And the mileage wasn't affected at all.
