Customer Question
1999 navistar 4900 with...

1999 navistar 4900 with dt 530 engine blew head gasket at rear. we replaced gaskets and # 6 injector, retorqed head and readjusted valves.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is this your first time dealing with this issue? What size is your engine?

When engine now starts makes noise as if ether was use, out tester says #1 injector problem, short etc..is it possible #6 injector was dumping too much fuel which could caues extreme pressure and blow gaset ?

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your 530?

And why is tester now pointing to # 1 as problem ? injector wiring ?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 530 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes dt530
