Cummins Engine Oil Spray
Last week, our engine warning light came on and an audible alarm. Stopped on side immediately to find that the tow car and the back of the coach were both completely covered by oil. All of the engine oil escaped in powerful bursts of spray.
Got towed (Thank goodness for Coach Net) to Inland Kenworth in Albuquerque. Cause : tapet pin bolt inop. inspection and consultation with Cummins required teardown to insect cam and follwer: removed rocker cover, all rockers and push rods; installed tapet holders. Much of this I don't understand, other than it was parts that are not servicable. A week of warranty coverage of over $7000. in repairs. Our cost: $160.00, "thank goodness:.
This post for info to other owners. Certainly a new and unheard of problem for us.
