Customer Question
2012 Mack MP 8...

2012 Mack MP 8. Getting coolant into fuel and quite a bit. Came on quickly, truck been running fine. Bad injector cup?

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: Are you fixing your truck yourself? What have you tried so far?

No. We bypassed davco fuel filter thinking it was bad but didn't solve the problem
