Right now its getting to his head because he do not know what to do. And ironically, a competition car that is driven flat out everywhere is one that wouldn’t have DPF problems in the first place. And if there’s one thing an automatic transmission hates, it’s heat.

There’s really nothing you can do to get around this maintenance chore. Replacing parts at random can be a very expensive exercise (especially when your talking DPD filters & injectors) Where are you located? Unfortunately the reliability of the DPD and EGR has proved to be a real downfall to what is otherwise a brilliant truck. Thanks. Over time, this would show how often that regenerations have occured automatically and/or have been required on a manual basis. With too much oil in place, oil was injected into the system and the result was to clog up the DPF, and worse.

A two-inch lift mightn’t sound like much, but it can be all the difference in rough going. One sweeping contractor interviewed for the first article in this series said they had started performing a manual regeneration after every shift, in an attempt to solve their DPF plugging issues. it lasted for about 1 hour. Nationwide Diesel Services is a family owned West Australian business. Even if you don’t want to change them periodically, at least have them inspected at every service. However, if the operator starts going too slow for the regeneration process at any time during the 20 or so minutes needed, the light may go off again without a regeneration taking place. In fact, we suggest you do so prior to reading this follow-up with two of Isuzu Commercial Truck's top U.S. managers. What’s that tapping noise?The Isuzu 3.0-litre turbo-diesel doesn’t have hydraulic valve-lash adjustment, so checking and setting the valve clearances is a routine maintenance job. You’ll be able to identify poor valve adjustment by a ticking noise from the top of the engine that is usually worst on cold start-ups. i am also from the Phil. The big difference between the D-Max and MU-X (body style and interior packaging aside) is that the D-Max got a conventional leaf-sprung rear axle, while the MU-X scored a better-riding, independent coil-sprung set-up. If the valves are tight, you won’t hear a thing but the top end of your engine will be copping a hammering. According to Rossettit, the overall chassis industry average is to have about 33 miles traveled for every hour of vehicle usage. The practice is highly illegal and the fines for an individual tampering with a vehicle’s emissions-control system can be massive. Those exhaust pipe emissions were soot. The four-wheel-drive system was a fair dinkum one which used Isuzu’s Terrain Command rotary dial to switch between two-wheel-drive, four-wheel-drive high-range and four-wheel-drive low-range where the 2.48:1 reduction ratio applied. Plus, as stated above, if the operator does most anything to the vehicle's controls during a manual regeneration the green light will go out, indicating the process has been interrupted. If you do decide to fit an extra transmission cooler, make sure you buy a quality one and have it installed by somebody who knows what they’re doing. And don’t forget to replace the boots at the same time. And, keep in mind that a regeneration will occur automatically as long as the vehicle is traveling at highway speeds of at least 30 mph, because that's what it takes to heat the exhaust enough to turn the soot into ash. When you re-grease bearings, remember that unless you have have a small bead of grease forming at the seal, the bearings are probably not full of grease. That said, you can buy a kit that deletes the DPF but take it from us, its strictly for competition, non-road-going cars. My truck says it needs manual regent, I go to depress the DPD button the display reads checking PM levels then goes back to flashing need manual regen. As a result, soot can build up to an excessive level. "They don't; just operate the vehicle normally because it's doing what it's supposed to. You can re-pack the bearings yourself if you know how to spot the wear signs, or a workshop can do it pretty cheaply as an add-on to your regular oil change service. Something went wrong while submitting the form. That was the reason Isuzu changed the dipsticks, not because of regeneration issues. If you have questions about your Isuzu chassis that cannot be answered by your local Isuzu dealer, your next step should be to call Isuzu Customer Relations, toll free, at 866-441-9638. But that’s not actually a very good idea at all. There are several possible causes that usually start out with the DPF regenerating more frequently than normal. The remote reservoir provides excellent heat dissipation to improve shock performance whilst allowing for extra shock travel when offroad. In the case of a blocked filter we can also perform industrial DPF Cleaning. I am locsted in Melbourne. If there are still questions, contact Isuzu's Consumer Relations Department. Ultimately, the DPF system will become clogged such that the green light will turn yellow, which indicates that a manual regeneration must be initiated. It seems the cracks are caused by either stress or metal fatigue and are most likely to show up on the suspension towers, near the VIN plate or low down on the inner guards. If your not local to us I may be able to point you toward the right workshop to diagnose your truck. If the yellow light comes on you need driver interaction somehow, but until then I recommend not paying any attention to it.". At Unsealed 4X4, we’ll give you up-to-date 4X4 news, reviews and how-to's to keep you in fine form. Thank you! actually it'll be a complex mix of lubricant additives, wear metals and other non-combustible material. And even underground car-parks with their tight spaces and twists and turns like a politician before an integrity commission, can use up a CV joint (not just an Isuzu one) in double-quick time. What it does is monitor a variety of factors about how the truck is being operated: speeds traveled; hard braking; quick acceleration; fuel economy; idle time; highway driving time and more.

Rossetti says that is, in most cases, an extreme response. Drop us a line, let us know if you've found any bugs, want to write a story for us, or even just say G'day. That way, you’ve taken a huge amount of stress off the rails and that’s got to be good news. With its meaty 3.0-litre turbo-diesel engine and proper off-road smarts, the Isuzu D-Max and MU-X have become popular choices for touring and serious off-roading. Forward this page by e-mail or share it directly on social media. I did ask why it has burned out. Rossetti also says they haven't seen issues with that amount as long as it is good quality biofuel, just like using good quality diesel. Load them up and there’s just too much rear sag and that translates to iffy steering and a loss of braking performance in a big emergency. My ECU keep brewing up an not going to gare.

In extreme cases when people have used bad biofuel, he says, they've seen instances where the inside of the fuel inlet pipe was coated with white grease from using what might be called [inferior] 'restaurant quality biofuel.'.

Ask for an opinion about your percentage of requested vs. completed DPF regenerations: They will know if you are 'in the ball park' in terms of completion rate. It does mean that you need to start heading to a fueling station. Both variants used a body-on-frame construction with a ladder chassis. Hi Chiko, please reach out too us via our contact page & I’ll be happy to assist. For bookings contact us today on 08 9206 4588. "One problem we've seen on a somewhat widespread basis, though," said Rossetti, "is drivers who disregard the lights when they come on.

That problem becomes a bit more understandable when you consider the front-bar names for a DPF; soot filter or soot trap. And it’s worse for a business, which is why most workshops will run a mile before agreeing to carry out this modification. Be sure not to over-tighten the rocker-cover (or it’ll crack) and make sure any grots that fall into the engine as you remove the rocker cover are picked out and not left to cause mayhem in the diesel’s upper-cylinder area. Unfortunately, many people read that the diesel particulate filter needs to be removed and cleaned every 100,000 miles or 3,000 hours. Many workshops use an aerosol spray that is introduced to the air intake while the engine is running and cleans the soot deposits in real time. That’s the bad news. Hi mate ,did u manage to resolve ur problem? I have just taken to my truck to the Isuzu dealer, and as usual they could not find the problem, bring it back next week, we think it could be the injectors. Similar to EGR problems, the DPF can become clogged up from city driving where the car does not get up to temperature.

Make sure you fit good quality units. Not to be used in conjunction with any other offer or discount. This may happen several times; it's not uncommon for a 'good' regeneration record to be that automatic regeneration takes place only 75% of the time. Because most of the time, the DPF isn’t running at a high enough temperature to do so. Thank you so much. I have taken my truck in to Isuzu and put a new dpd filter in. How to order new filter.. Hi Niel, we can supply brand new or second hand / clean DPD filters, give us a call on 08 9206 4588 to discuss your requirements. Be careful where you mount a second battery, too, as the extra mass of a big battery could easily lead to the sort of engine-bay cracks reported. Nigel, Hi Nigel, we deal with these trucks daily. In short, Isuzu recommends a maximum of 5% of biofuel be used in its vehicles.
