Keeping your engines running
HIS truck might have done almost two million kilometres, but thanks to Cost Effective Maintenance, the engine works like it’s brand new.
“With kilometres like that, that’s almost unheard of,” Riseleys Baulk Haulage owner Phill Riseley says.
Crankcase blow-by and oil use are worrying signs for truckies, but, as Phill can attest to, it needn’t be the case. Crankcase blow-by typically means an expensive engine rebuild will be recommended by a mechanic or equipment supplier and the cost of that starts at $20,000 and can go up to $60,000.
When you are faced with a possible rebuild, you need to know that your money is well spent.
That’s where Cost Effective Maintenance can help you. The good news is that during the past three decades, 80 per cent of trucks with blow-by still have wear within acceptable levels.
Cost Effective Maintenance discovered that the real problem was that they were usually heavily fouled with carbon and sludge, which is the most common cause of piston ring sticking, blow-by and oil use.
If you’ve got blow-by or oil use, it makes sense financially to start restoring the engine to a clean condition.
It couldn’t be easier and the cost is low – simply use the Flushing Oil Concentrate with FTC Decarbonizer and in 80 per cent of cases, the engine will reduce blow-by and oil use.
Most of Cost Effective Maintenance’s customers, who are able to monitor their fuel use, report significant fuel savings after using the product.
Phill said that the products now were “the only stuff I’ll use”.
“I use them in three of my trucks and my Dad uses them in his Range Rover or diesel.”
Phill said he started using the products when the engine “started smoking” and just “wasn’t happy” during tipping trips he made at a load site.
