Customer Question
I have a 2016...

I have a 2016 DD15 that has been losing coolant can find where it has been going. Now suddenly overnight it has water in the fuel lights coming on and shutting down the truck. I am not with the truck but I am suspecting the coolant is going in to the fuel somehow. Is this possible?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Truck Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Ok

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the truck mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not really

Coolant in the fuel is caused by leaking injector o'rings. All the injectors will need to be removed an resealed.
