Anyone else hear of this? The gaps cause power loss, and ultimately mean that the engine needs to be rebuilt or replaced. Most remedies at this point entail the head to be removed for internal inspection. Watkins said his company's business is a good leading indicator for what's happening in the national economy. Kenworth Truck Company is the manufacturer of The World's Best® heavy and medium duty trucks. Intake manifold vacuum acts against a spring loaded diaphragm to control the flow of crankcase gases. I have 7 Paccar engine trucks. The complaint says the engine is in use in many Peterbilt trucks and in over 35 percent of Kenworth trucks.
That mileage probably isn't too bad for hauling liquid. Does the plug look fouled with oil worn rings possibly or conversely does it look as if it has been running lean possibly a blocked injector. The engine is available for Kenworth Class 8 models, including the Kenworth T660, T680, T700, T800 and W900.
