    c 13

    Well i have a 2006 peterbilt, i have already had to rebuild the motor head gasket failure is common on these from what i have been told.My fuel econemy has gotten worse since the rebuild cat cant seem to get all the little problems out of this thing. I am currently sitting at the cat dealer again as there seems to be lots of oil on the steps agin. I will not buy another cat motor agin and i am currently looking at dumping this truck before it bankrups me
