    So you know idling an emissions truck is horrible for the engine and emissions system, yet you are about to buy an emissions truck that has spent its life idling?

    Truck I am buying has an APU. I am just upgrading it to a newer model and setup. I will also have a deep cleaning done on the engine as well.

    My mistake. When you said you were getting a new one instated i read it as it didn't have one.

    Actually, I should have said I am replacing the APU with a new unit, so my bad. :)

    Current unit needs a lot of work (14,000 service hours) and the piping for the HVAC was never installed correctly, making it somewhat inefficient for cooling, so I am having Thermo King install a whole new system.

    I get my engine washed all the time. It's $9 at The Beacon. Looks brand new. They will do the axles for like $20. I do those as needed. Truck looks brand new. It's pennies.
     
    TomOfTx and Scooter Jones Thank this.

    I am referring to the inside of the engine using a foaming solvent to break down all the carbon and soot buildup internally. :)
