Why does my Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) keep plugging up for no reason?
95% of the time, this is caused by lack or improper spec’ing of an
engine to its specific duty cycle. Other causes include shorted-out sensors
in range or internal coolant leaks, causing repair bills as high as $15,000.
How do I know if my engine is spec’d properly?
If you have to ask, it is probably not. When trucks are ordered, they are spec’d to general, factory settings and are not set up for specific work duties. For example, if you use a factory spec’d truck for stop-and-go short distance deliveries with constant idling, it will use the engine differently than if you were to run that same truck long-distances with a majority of highway driving. Lloyd Diesel will tune your unit’s ECM for its specific work duty, thus maximizing its efficiency.
Will it affect my warranty?
No, having LDT spec your engine to increase efficiency does not void your warranty.
What can I expect from these changes?
Our customers see a huge drop in aftertreatment related repairs and down-time, and in many cases, nearly eliminating them. With regular cleaning at recommended services, an engine will be able to run longer and with little or no incident.
