Good morning everyone! I am working on purchasing an XD with the Cummins. It has 92k on it. What should I be looking for or expected/possible issue in the future? What’s the reliability of the injectors, turbo, dpf and other emissions related parts?

I’m a diesel mechanic by trade but I’ve never worked on a Cummins before only Volvo and Mack 13L engines.

Thanks in advance,
Ryan

LOL wow…it seems like I just keep talking about this….I literally just gave my 2 cents on some recent issues that I have experienced in two other posts today…soooo….it seems that these engines are having some issues with an egr valve leaking, engine coolant sensor going out and turbine actuator assembly ( waste gate ) and linkage going out….all issues I had to tackle over last 5 months…all throwing same dash alarms ( red triangle, engine power reduced message and check engine light)…expensive parts and labor that come with these repairs and parts are getting harder to find…egr valve $950 plus labor, coolant sensor/ reservoir $118 and turbine rotor actuator $1100 plus labor…. So find out if these parts have replaced yet….because odds are you will be replacing them…112k and 116k miles is when my parts failed….

If you don’t work your truck like a diesel is designed to do yes these are common points of failure. Just work the truck, don’t drive like grandma, it’ll be good to you

I would say 75% of total users on here have signed up to whine about something breaking on their trucks.

The vast majority of us on here have had generally problem free trucks.

Like Cajun said, if vtheir truck is used to commute or idle in traffic or not ever tow anything, it will fall apart.

Complete all the maintenance on time and use it like a truck.

Thanks for your feedback

I plan to definitely put it to use! Thanks for the reply!

Your ignorance knows no bounds apparently
Are you like 17 or something? Show me my ignorance, I’m begging you. If you honestly think what I said is ignorant then you have no reason to own a diesel other than to try and look cool. Drive it like an old lady and watch your emissions clog up sooner, you WILL have actuator issues, etc.

You have demonstated numerous times you don’t understand this engine. Perhaps, any engine.

The ISV does not have a true wastegate. It is a rotary valve that divides the exhaust flow between the high pressure and low pressure turbines. There is a bypass at somewhere around 90%.

EGR valves are a maintenance item and should be disassembled and cleaned or completely removed on deleted trucks.

Haha bro get off my nuts please and stop replying to everything I post. I wish you were closer so I could get schooled by your knowledge oh wise one
If you don't like being replied to on a public forum, and you can't see how that's a you problem... I'll be here to remind you of how it is.
