My name is ***** ***** i will assist you.

Do you still have oil in the charge air cooler? How high were the RPMs?

What is the engine serial number?

On your 07 ISX, did you move the dpf filter over when you installed it in your 04 or did you leave it off? What about the EGR?

The system DOES NOT automatically give me credit from your deposit. A rating is REQUIRED. You are rating me for the information I provide,
not the website. I have no control over the site fees, site errors, category errors, or how long it took for a response for these reasons.

I am not an employee of this website, so please rate with a POSITIVE (green) rating for me to get credit for assisting you. You still pay
the website for negatives or by not rating at all. I just get nothing from that payment you made. So please rate each answer I provide.

I want you pleased with my service to you so please inform me before rating negative (red) and I will do my best to make it right. Follow
ups for same question are always free after ratings have been made.

I do have many workshop manuals, diagrams, etc that I pay to get access to out of my pocket. If one is needed, please ask and I will give
you an offer at my technician discounted cost to you for such manuals. I never charge above that cost.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you through Just Answer!

serial number 60801230 it is pre dpf engine
intercooler was drained from oil thru the bottom rubber hose connection.
EGR is plugged i believe.

hose for the water line broke in result of that. i am guessing due to the high pressure of water pump within those 10-15 seconds of high rpms

Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. First remove the engine oil filter and using a filter cutting tool cut open the filter and cut a decent size sample from the filter media. Squeeze the excess oil out in a vise. Inspect the sample for metal and bearing material, rings, etc. If found you have confirmed the engine is in need of overhaul. Next drop the oil pan and check the drain oil and the bottom of the pan for metal/debris. Inspect all the rod and main bearing caps for discoloration from heat as well as looking for signs of a spun or partially spun bearing. Next, with a bright light inspect all the cylinder walls for vertical scuff/scratch marks indicating excessive heat, damaged rings, cylinder walls, and low compression. If any of this is found the engine is in need of complete overhaul. In frame or out of frame will depend on the crankshaft condition when the rod and main caps are removed to inspect the journals. If all so far checks out good, run through the overhead adjustments to verify if any of the adjustments are far out of specs indicating a cam or cylinder head issue. Finally, check for fault codes and post any fault codes you currently have logged in the ECM. Let me know
