15
THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
THE EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEMS
WARRANTY
REPLACEMENT PARTS
The emission control systems of your new Detroit Engine were designed, built
and tested using Genuine Detroit Parts* and the engine is certified as being
in conformity with applicable regulations of the U.S. (Federal) Environmental
Protection Agency, Emission Regulations under the Canada Motor Vehicle
Safety Act in Canada, and the California Air Resources Board. Accordingly, it
is recommended that any replacement parts used for maintenance or for the
repair of emission control systems be new, Genuine Detroit Parts.
THE WARRANTY OBLIGATIONS ARE NOT DEPENDENT UPON THE USE OF ANY
PARTICULAR BRAND OF REPLACEMENT PARTS. THE OWNER MAY ELECT TO
USE NON-GENUINE DETROIT PARTS FOR REPLACEMENT PURPOSES. USE
OF REPLACEMENT PARTS WHICH ARE NOT OF EQUIVALENT QUALITY MAY
IMPAIR THE EFFECTIVENESS OF EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEMS.
If other than Genuine Detroit Parts are used for maintenance replacements
or for the repair of components affecting emission controls, the owner should
assure himself/herself that such parts are warranted by their manufacturer to
be equivalent to Genuine Detroit Parts in performance and durability.
MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS
MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS CAN BE PERFORMED BY ANY QUALIFIED
SERVICE OUTLET, HOWEVER, WARRANTY REPAIRS MUST BE PERFORMED
BY AN AUTHORIZED DETROIT SERVICE OUTLET. Receipts covering the
performance of regular maintenance should be retained in the event questions
arise concerning maintenance. These receipts should be transferred to each
subsequent owner of this vehicle. Detroit reserves the right to deny warranty
coverage if the required maintenance has not been performed. However, this
decision would not be based solely on the absence of maintenance records.
Repairs covered by this warranty will be made at no charge by an Detroit
Authorized Service Outlet. If in an emergency situation it is necessary to have
repairs performed by other than an Detroit Authorized Service Outlet because
an authorized outlet is not reasonably available, repairs may be performed
at any available service establishment or by the owner, using any equivalent
replacement part. Detroit will reimburse the owner for expenses (including
Continued on page 17
16
diagnosis), not to exceed Detroit ’s suggested retail price for all warranted
parts replaced and labor charges based on Detroit ’s recommended time
allowance for warranty repair and the geographically appropriate hourly labor
rate. A part not being available within 30 days or a repair not being complete
within 30 days constitutes an emergency. For reimbursement of the repairs that
were performed, take the replaced parts and receipt to an Detroit Authorized
Service Outlet for reimbursement consideration.
*“GENUINE DETROIT PARTS” when used in connection with Detroit Engines, means parts manufactured by or for Detroit, designed for use on Detroit Engines and distributed by Detroit . This
definition includes remanufactured assemblies designated reliable and sold by authorized Detroit
Distributors that may be used in performing warranty repairs.
U.S. CLEAN AIR ACT
The U.S. Clean Air Act requires the engine manufacturer to furnish, with each
new engine to be installed in a motor vehicle, written instructions for proper
maintenance and use of the vehicle or engine by the ultimate purchaser. The
instructions shall correspond to regulations which the Administrator of the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) shall promulgate. This booklet provides
these instructions to owners in compliance with the law.
NORMAL ENGINE USE
The owner’s maintenance instructions contained in this booklet are based on
the assumption that the engine will be used to power a motor vehicle which
will be used as designed:
• To carry passengers and/or cargo within the weight limitations indicated on
the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) affixed to the vehicle;
• To operate within legal operating limits;
• To operate on a daily basis, as a general rule, for at least several miles, and;
• To operate on specified fuel and lubricating oils as covered in the Operator’s
Manual
Unusual operating conditions will require more frequent engine maintenance
as specified in the Section “Explanation of Owner’s Emission Control
Maintenance Services.”
17
EXPLANATION OF OWNER’S EMISSION
CONTROL MAINTENANCE SERVICES
1. ENGINE LUBRICATING OIL: Change the lubricating oil every 50,000 miles
maximum for highway trucks. (Refer to Engine Requirements – Lubricating
Oil, Fuel and Filters – DDC-SVC-BRO-0001). Reference the DDPlatform
Operator’s Guide maintenance table and maintenance intervals for additional
details.
2. ENGINE LUBRICATING OIL FILTERS: Change the lubricating oil filters
at each oil change (50,000 mile maximum). Reference the DDPlatform
Operator’s Guide maintenance table and maintenance intervals for
additional detail.
3. COOLANT: Check the coolant level daily before starting the engine. Make
sure coolant is up to the proper level. Add coolant as necessary. DO NOT
OVERFILL. Check all cooling system lines and hoses for damage, leaks
or loose connections. Tighten or replace as necessary. (Refer to Coolant
Selections for Detroit Engines – DDC-SVC-BRO-0002). Check for proper
inhibitor level at 20,000 miles and add as required.
4.*FUEL FILTERS: Replace the filters or filter elements in the strainer and the
filter every 50,000 miles maximum or when plugging is indicated. Check
for leaks after servicing. Reference the DDPlatform Operator’s Guide
maintenance table and maintenance intervals for additional details.
5. DRY TYPE AIR CLEANER: Under no operating condition should the intake
restriction exceed 20 inches of water at full load and rated speed. A
clogged air cleaner element will cause excessive intake restriction and
a reduced air supply to the engine. For equivalent restriction limits for
lower speed, refer to Detroit Corporation Engineering Bulletin No. 39,
“Air Cleaner Systems for Detroit Engines.” If the dry type air cleaner is
equipped with an aspirator, check for aspirator damage or clogging. Clean
and repair as necessary.
6.*TURBOCHARGER: Inspect turbocharger mountings, air intake and exhaust
ducts for leaks. Check the oil inlet and outlet lines and connections for
leaks and for restrictions to oil flow. Check for unusual vibration or noises.
If excessive, remove the unit from service and have cause corrected.
Continued on page 19
*An emission control service.
18
7.*AFTERTREATMENT DEVICE (ATD): Under no operating conditions should
the exhaust back pressure ahead of the particulate filter exceed 8.86” Hg
(30kPa). At this level of back pressure, the Amber Warning Lamp (AWL)
will be illuminated and a SPN 3720 Code will be set in the engine Motor
Control Module (MCM). A clogged Particulate filter element will restrict
air flow through the engine. Inspect and clean every 300,000 miles or
9,000 hours, whichever occurs first. Reference the DD13 Operator’s Guide
maintenance table and maintenance intervals for additional details.
8. PARTICULATE FILTER: A “Check Engine Light” will illminate when
ash requires removal. Remove ash between 300,000 miles/9,00 eng hrs
(480,000km) to 400,000 miles/10,250 eng hrs (640,000km)
9. DEF PUMP FILTER: See maintenance table for required replacement.
10. D
EF PUMP AIR BLADDER: Refill with air every 24 months (if applicable).
11. V
ALVE LASH ADJUSTMENT: Adjust at 100,000mi (160,000km), at 500,000 mi
(800,000km) and then every 500,000 mi (800,000km) thereafter.

OWNER’S EMISSION CONTROL
MAINTENANCE SERVICE CHARTS
There are three types of maintenance schedules:
• Severe Service
• Short Haul
• Long Haul
Note: Load factor and idle time values must be based on DDEC reports representative of the
current service application.
Severe Service
Severe service applies to vehicles that annually travel up to 30,000 miles
(48,000 kilometers) or that operate under severe conditions. Examples of
Severe Service usage include: idle time over 35%, load factor over 55%,
operation on extremely poor roads or where there is heavy dust accumulation;
constant exposure to extreme hot, cold, salt-air, or other extreme climates;
frequent short-distance travel; construction-site operation; city operation (fire
truck, garbage truck), or farm operation. Only one of these conditions needs to
be met to categorize an application as Severe Service.
Short Haul
Short Haul service applies to vehicles that annually travel up to 60,000 miles
(96,000 kilometers) or with a load factor over 45% and operate under normal
conditions. Examples of Short Haul usage are: operation primarily in cities and
densely populated areas; local transport with infrequent freeway travel; or high
percentage of stop-and-go travel.
Long Haul
Long Haul service (over-the-road transport) applies to vehicles that annually
travel more than 60,000 miles (96,000 kilometers) with minimal city stop-and-go
operation. Examples of Long Haul service are: Regional delivery that is mostly
freeway mileage, interstate transport, and any road operation with high annual
mileage.
28
LUBRICATING OIL ANALYSIS – WARNING
VALUES
A fuel dilution exceeding 7.1% by volume indicates an immediate need for an
oil change and corrective maintenance action. Fuel dilution can be confirmed
by ASTM D3524 test procedure performed by oil suppliers or independent
laboratories.
In addition to the above considerations, the oil drain interval for Detroit Engines
has been exceeded if:
• The viscosity at 212oF (100oC) of a used oil sample exceeds 21.9 cst (15w-40).
• The iron content is greater than 200 parts per million.
• The carbon (soot) content by TGA exceeds 4.5% by weight (ASTM E1131).
• The total base number (TBN) is less than 33% of original (ASTM D4739).
Detroit biodiesel as a renewable fuel. Biodiesel fuels are mono-alkyl esters of
long chain fatty acids commonly referred to as Fatty Acid Methyl Esters and
are derived from renewable resources through a chemical process called
transesteriification. Detroit approves the use of biodiesel fuel blends up to 5%
maximum by volume in diesel fuel providing the following three conditions
are met:.
• The biodiesel fuel used in the blend meets ASTM Standard D6751 or EN ......
14214 specificaton.
• The biodiesel fuel used in the blend is sourced from a BQ-9000 Accredited Producer.
• The finished blend meets the fuel properties ASTM Standard D975 or EN 590 specification.
DetroitTM is responsible for the materials and workmanship of its engines.
Failures attributed to the use of fuels which do not meet industry standards
are not the fault of Detroit and will not be covered by Detroit product warranty.
While Detroit supports the use of B5, the use of unacceptable quality fuel that
does not meet industry standards can result in warranty evocation.
Note: Biodiesel fuelscan decrese the life of fuel filters and degrade their water coalescing ability.
It is Detroit’s recommendation that fuel filter maintenance intervals be reduced by 50% if fuels with
greater than 5% biodiesel are used in the engine 50% of the time or more.
29
POLICY ON OWNER SERVICE
MAINTENANCE SERVICES
Proper maintenance and care of the engine will help achieve lower overall
operating costs. Use of recommended fuels and lubricants and regular
maintenance performed by competent service personnel will help avoid conditions
arising from neglect which are not covered by Detroit new product warranties.
The maintenance services described in the applicable Operator’s Guide should
be performed at the time and/or mileage intervals stated, by an Authorized
Detroit Service Outlet or any qualified service outlet.
PRODUCTION CHANGE
Detroit reserves the right to make change(s) in design or add improvement(s)
on the products at any time without incurring any obligations to install same on
products previously purchased. Authorized Service Outlets reserve a similar
right.
WARRANTY REPAIR ORDER
For the owner’s records, the Authorized Service Outlet will provide a copy of
the warranty repair order listing all warranty repairs performed.
30
Fuel Additives
Detroit Diesel engines are designed to operate satisfactorily on a wide range
of diesel fuels. The use of supplemental fuel additives is not recommended due
to potential injector system or engine damage. Our experience has been that
such additives increase operating costs without providing benefit.‪
WATER CONTAMINATION
Some fuel additives claim temporary benefit when fuel is contaminated with
water. They are not intended to replace good fuel handling practices. Good fuel
handling practices include bulk tank filtration, regularly removing the water
from the bottom of the storage tank and regular tank cleaning.‪
Where water contamination is a concern, equip the fuel system with a fuel/
water separator and service it regularly. Supplemental fuel additives designed
to disperse, emulsify or carry the water through the fuel system should not be
used, as they can disable or significantly reduce the efficiency of fuel/water
separators, resulting in fuel system corrosion. Since many fuel additives act
as surfactants, their effect on the efficiency of fuel/water separators should
be evaluated by ASTM D7261 test method, which is a quick measurement of
roughly how much water passes through a coalescing filter in a single pass.‪
MICROBIAL CONTAMINATION
In marine and other environments where microbe growth is a problem, a
biocide may be used. Microbial activity may be confirmed with commercially
available test kits. When checking for microbial activity, collect fuel samples
from the bottom of the fuel tank. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for
treatment. Avoid the use of biocides containing chlorine, bromine, or fluorine
compounds, since these may cause fuel system corrosion.‪
FUEL ADDITIVES THAT ARE NOT ALLOWED
The following fuel additives are NOT allowed:‪
USED ENGINE OIL‪
To avoid injury to skin from contact with the contaminants in used engine oil,
wear protective gloves and apron.‪
• U
sed Lubricating Oil – Detroit Diesel specifically prohibits the use
of drained lubricating oil in diesel fuel. Used lubricating oil contains
combustion acids and particulate materials, which erode injector
components, resulting in loss of power and increased exhaust emissions.
In addition, the use of drained lubricating oil will increase maintenance
requirements due to filter plugging and combustion deposits. Refer to “3.10
Waste Oil Disposal and Re-Refined Oils” , “Waste Oil Disposal and Rerefined Oils,” for recommendations on proper used oil disposal.
31
• G
asoline - The addition of gasoline to diesel fuel will create a serious fire
hazard. The presence of gasoline in diesel fuel will reduce the fuel cetane
number and increase combustion temperatures.
• E thanol - The addition of ethanol to diesel fuel will create a serious fire
hazard. The presence of ethanol in diesel fuel will reduce the fuel cetane
number and increase combustion temperatures. Drain and clean tanks
that contain such mixtures as soon as possible. Detroit Diesel will not be
responsible for any detrimental effects which it determines resulted from
the use of used lubricating oil, gasoline, or ethanol in diesel fuel.‪
EVALUATION OF SUPPLEMENTAL FUEL ADDITIVES FOR TEMPORARY USE
Many supplements available today are intended to be added to the fuel by the
customer. These include a variety of independently marketed products which
claim to be:
• Cetane Improvers
• Emission Control Additives
• Detergents
• Combustion Improvers
• Smoke Suppressants
• Cold Weather Flow Improvers
• Fuel Economy
Should a customer decide that a supplemental additive is temporarily required;
the following is intended to provide guidance to the customer in evaluating
potential safety hazards and deleterious engine effects.‪
• R
eview a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) carefully for special handling
instructions and hazardous material content. Additives containing
hazardous materials should not be used due to personal safety risk.
• G
et a detailed compositional analysis from the supplier. Ash forming
metallic elements and corrosive elements must not be present. Additives
containing calcium, barium, zinc, phosphorous, sodium, magnesium, iron,
copper, and manganese are known to cause combustion ash deposits that
can foul fuel injectors and create deposits which may adversely affect
cylinder life. Halogenated compounds containing chloride, fluoride, and
bromide are corrosive, as are some sulfur- containing compounds. Avoid
the use of additives with these components.
32
• M
any additives act as surfactants, evaluate the effect of water separation
characteristics on the fuel in combination with the additive. Refer to Table
5-1 for performance requirements.
• M
any commercial diesel fuels today contain performance additives,
particularly those marketed as premium diesel fuel. Any supplemental
additive being considered must be compatible with the fuel it is to be used
in. Evaluate a mixture containing twice the recommended concentration
of additive for compatibility to represent an over dosage condition,
using the tests listed in Table “Diesel Fuel Specifications” , “Diesel Fuel
Specifications”.
OWNER’S WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES:
• C
onduct performance evaluation of a fuel supplemental additive in
customer equipment for a minimum of six months. Testing should be a sideby-side comparison with and without the additive to verify performance
claims. Testimonials do not guarantee similar performance in all
applications.
Supplemental fuel additives are not recommended due to potential injector
system or engine damage. Our experience has been that such additives
increase operating costs without providing benefit. The use of supplemental
fuel additives does not necessarily void the engine warranty. However, repair
expenses which result from fuel system or engine component malfunctions or
damage attributed to their use will not be covered. Accompany these products
with performance data supporting their merit as well as the manufacturer’s
warranty policy. Detroit Diesel will not test or verify the performance of any
supplemental additives and will not accept responsibility for use, selection, or
hazards relating to the use of such products. ‪
33
CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE PROCEDURE
Detroit has established a three-step procedure which customers should
follow when experiencing a problem with any Detroit product or Part. Detroit
fully realizes that ultimately the customer’s concerns will be resolved at the
Distributor/Dealer level and therefore encourages customers
to follow the procedure outlined below:
STEP ONE
Customers should discuss the problem with member(s) of management from the
Authorized Service Outlet. Frequently, complaints are the result of a breakdown
in communication and can quickly be resolved by a member of management. If
they have already discussed the problem with the Distributor or Dealer’s Sales
or Service Manager, they should contact the General Manager.
STEP TWO
When it appears that your problem cannot readily be resolved at the
Distributor/Dealer level without additional assistance, the Detroit Customer
Support Center (CSC) should be contacted at 1-800-445-1980.
The information provided to the CSC will be forwarded to the appropriate
Regional Product Support Manager. The customer will then be assisted by a
member of the Regional Product Support Manager’s staff, depending on the
nature of his/her problem.
Prior to contacting the CSC the customer should have the following
information available:
• Name and location of Authorized Service Outlet
• Type, make and Vehicle Identification Number of equipment
• Engine model and serial number
• Engine delivery date and accumulated miles/kilometers of hours or operation
• Nature of problem
• Chronological summary of the engine’s repair history
STEP THREE
If you are still not satisfied, present the entire matter in writing or by phone to:
