    Like 5 days after my breakdown my ICA nor finance rep even knew I was broke down. They acted surprised when I told me lol.

    The shop was cranky everytime i walk in, everytime I asked a question.
    I mainly got we dont know, we dont know.. you're engine is really messed up, we dont know, youll probably need a new engine, we dont know, we're working with warranty department, we dont know, we dont know, check back later etc etc.

    They probably meant the #6 cylinder liner was damaged in some way. Whatever "gone" means to the tech that tore it down. The liner is basically a replaceable cylinder that is pressed into the engine block that the piston moves up and down in; where compression takes place. Most big diesels are built like this. Dunno much about the Paccar engines, never seen one tore down, but I would be almost certain they have wet liners, meaning the outsides of the liners are in contact with engine coolant. Wet liners have grooves cut in them where o-rings are placed to seal the crankcase off from coolant.

    Pretty major failure for an engine with low miles on it. Even on high-mileage engines liner failures are usually in the form of pinholes in the liners that allow coolant to weep into the combustion chamber.

    Here is a video of a liner being installed on a S60 Detroit.



    Another neat video. Now will be on I'll be on YouTube for the next 2 hours. Nice knowing ya guys.

    Thank you

    I did hear something about "a lined being destroyed" when i was in the shop early on but they didn't seem to care to go onto more detail.
    They made me feel like i should just mind my own business and let them do their work.
    I had to push and push and remind them this is costing me thousands of dollars just to get updates.
    All of my shop experienced were horrible. Kenworth in Knoxville was okay though, they got my truck fixed fast although they supposedly fixed a sensor when they really didn't lol

    I didn't think about it. I know I been waiting a long time but I was waiting on a used truck to my specs.
