Most fleet vehicles often experience issues in their Exhaust Gas Recirculation system. Its job is to reduce carbon emissions, but if it isn’t in optimal working condition, a faulty exhaust system can end up putting unnecessary load on your engine.
Like the EGR, the diesel particulate filter serves the same purpose by trapping soot from the exhaust in its honeycomb-shaped exhaust pipe, storing it, and then burning it off. This also reduces carbon emissions.
These two systems are necessary for the proper operation of your trucks but can run into many problems if they are not serviced regularly.
The DPF system helps heavy-duty trucks travel long distances comfortably. However, it would be best to get your DPF system checked after every 300,000 miles to avoid problems.
If these issues are ignored for too long, your engine may start acting up. A clear indication of this is when the yellow light appears on your dashboard.
EGR coolers have two failure modes: plugging with soot, which restricts the flow of the gasses through the system, and fractures inside the cooler from thermal cycling and the constant pressure applied to the system.
It is vital to get your EGR system checked for any malfunctions to avoid further complications in your engine. Also, make sure to take your vehicle to a professional for timely EGR cleaning and EGR replacement if necessary.
