Mike Well-Known Member Staff member. May end up going used, but that is beside the point for now. If you were to buy a brand new truck not a gliderand had the above 4 engines to choose from obviously, a couple of the choices are going to narrow you down to a specific model of truck alsowhich would you choose and why? So far, I am having good luck with the Detroit DD This is currently my 3rd truck with this engine, and it has been a great powerplant in each truck.

Haven't had one in action over K though, so no idea about long term durability. ISX horror stories scare me. Guessing they got most of the bugs worked out at this point, but a little nervous about taking a chance with one. Would you? Why or why not? Volvo - not really considering it, but it is here for the opinions. Right now, I am leaning toward a Freightliner because of my comfort level with Detroit. Tim U. Constitution Supporter. With todays sad sack of choices I'd have to go with Detroit.

I am purchasing a new vehicle, but I am undecided which of the following engines to go with.

I'm interested in quality, I want the most reliable engine even if I have to sacrifice price and fuel. These are my only options since I am needing a cabover which only peterbilt, mack and autocar make and these are the engines they offer. I know the engines these days have a lot of garbage added to them as in sensors, after treatment, but these is what we have to work with.

Everyone has good experiences with many of these engines and many of you have had bad experiences with these. Can you give me your opinion and suggestions what engine to go with. I am needing something in the hp range with a Allison automatic. I don't have a preference of the vehicle manufacture, just the engine. Injun Rabid Squaw Staff member. Injun said:.

When i turned wrenches for the garbage company a few years back, we had a couple of brand new at the time 09 Mack MRs.

They had the DPF system and spent more time on the back of a hook than picking up trash. Chewbacca said:. ISX The harder an engine has to work, the faster it will wear out. A 12 will not have to work as hard as an 8. Yes, it will. But it'll give you fewer problems than the others.

Paccar says during assembly, certain Kenworth models did not undergo the rear wheel mounting torque verification process, which could result in the rear wheels being loose and separating from the truck. Paccar estimates 49 trucks to be affected in this recall. Kenworth will notify owners, and dealers will verify the rear wheel lug nuts are correctly tightened, free of charge.

A notification schedule has not yet been released. The water may also cause corrosion which, over time, could result in an electrical short. Paccar is still developing and testing a remedy, according to the recall notice.

Approximately 1, trucks are included in a recall in which trucks equipped with the Paccar MX engines and Delco-Remy 40SI alternators have alternator charge cables that may chafe against a formed metal freon discharge line, which could cause an electrical short resulting in a fire. Paccar will notify owners, and dealers will reroute the alternator cable away from the metal freon line, free of charge. Presented By: pamtransport. Your email address will not be published.

Houston trucker honored for aiding gunshot victim.By MackdaddyApril 13, in Engine and Transmission. Gonna get the Allison auto and half the year pulling a shorty dump at 73, and the other half pulling a tank or a long dump at 80, I'm a tech for a oil field fleet, of water haulers.

We have about 10 mo8 engines and they have all been great. One set of cups went bad on a that truck was rolled has been problems ever seance other then that the MPs have been awesome.

They do as well or better than what else is out there. For mixed on-off road, a C or C should do well. You wont get maximum mileage with an Allison, but thats your call based on the trade offs with the job you do daily.

I was thinking about the cause I don't think you can get the Allison with the I know some guys that have the Allison and love them. I do a lot of stop and go in traffic for half the year and think the Allison would be great. The auto shift doesn't work good for the construction stuff I do.
