Okay thanks

Good morning

Each manufacturer's engine has its own issues. The DD15 does have its issues with the regen system and oil leaks.

Cummins ISX is a good engine but just like the DD15, it has its own issues with the regen system and EGR coolers and EGR valves.

Is one better than another? I myself like the Cummins as there issues are not as frequent.

Hi Roy, that's the answer I was looking for to inform a colleague of mine why he should favor the Cummins vs. today's Detroit Diesel DD 15/16 series engines. The series 60 Detroit's were the best, ***** ***** available in new heavy truck builds. North America emission rules I guess
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 year ago

Yep, I agree. You can get the 60 in a glider but they are getting hard to find.

You are welcome
