    Brand new remanufactured engine from cummins factory made it 820 miles with the brand new engine

    Then starts shootings coolant out overflow, and white smoke everywhere

    Engine locked, oil full of coolant, turbo full of coolant, cylinder 1 (maybe more) full of coolant

    Seriously 820 miles on engine. Nice job cummins

    Sounds like you’ve got a head gasket blown. Someone didn’t break it in correctly and retorque studs. (Not you, someone on the line). I love cummins and will most likely stick with them, but while I do like their 6.7L, I don’t like the newer ones. I had an 08 isx and it always idled rough with only 250k on it, and got junk mileage. The key word is red “top”
