Keep­ing your en­gines run­ning

Big Rigs - - TECH TALK -

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.
