Repeat EGR Cooler failure on ISL?
I have a Cummins ISL 8.9 in a SportChassis and have owned it since new. This is our second year of ownership and the truck has over 50,000 miles on it currently. However, I've had repeated EGR cooler failures. The first one took place last year and the truck had around 25,000 miles. Freightliner replaced cooler and cleaned out the EGR value. They were completely filled with soot. This last month, we again had the EGR cooler fail and the truck had 50,000 miles on it. We also went to a different Freightliner than the one before. From the day we picked it up, we put a 10 minute idle shut-off. So, we have never allowed the truck to idle for extended periods of time. So, my question is if anyone else with a Cummins ISL 8.9 had problems with their EGR cooler? If this happens again, my plan is to go to a Cummins shop and see what they have to say.
