Foreword
Scheduled maintenance provides a key element for the safe operation of your vehicle. A proper
maintenance program also helps to minimize downtime and to safeguard warranties. This maintenance manual provides information necessary for years of safe, reliable, and cost-efficient vehicle
operation.
IMPORTANT: The maintenance operations in this manual are not all-inclusive. Also refer to
other component and body manufacturers’ instructions for specific inspection and maintenance instructions. A listing of many OEM websites of vehicle component or system
providers can be found in the Coronado® Workshop Manual, Section 00.02.
Perform the operations in this maintenance manual at scheduled intervals. Perform the pretrip and
post-trip inspections, and daily/weekly/monthly maintenance, as outlined in the vehicle driver’s
manual. Major components, such as engines, transmissions, and rear axles, are covered in their own
maintenance and operation manuals, that are provided with the vehicle. Perform any maintenance
operations listed at the intervals scheduled in those manuals. Your Freightliner Dealership has the
qualified technicians and equipment to perform this maintenance for you. They can also set up a
scheduled maintenance program tailored specifically to your needs. Optionally, they can assist you in
learning how to perform these maintenance procedures.

Introduction
Descriptions of Service Publications
Daimler Trucks North America LLC distributes the following major service publications in paper and electronic
(via ServicePro®) formats.
Workshop/Service
Manual
Workshop/service manuals contain service and repair information for all vehicle
systems and components, except for major components such as engines, transmissions, and rear axles. For service and repair information of major components, refer to the OEM website. A listing of many OEM websites can be found
in Section 00.02 of the workshop/service manual. Each workshop/service
manual section is divided into subjects that can include general information,
principles of operation, removal, disassembly, assembly, installation, and specifications.
Maintenance Manual
Maintenance manuals contain routine maintenance procedures and intervals for
vehicle components and systems. They have information such as lubrication
procedures and tables, fluid replacement procedures, fluid capacities, specifications, and procedures for adjustments and for checking the tightness of fasteners. Maintenance manuals do not contain detailed repair or service information.

Service Bulletins
Service bulletins provide the latest service tips, field repairs, product improvements, and related information. Some service bulletins are updates to information in the workshop/service manual. These bulletins take precedence over
workshop/service manual information, until the latter is updated; at that time, the
bulletin is usually canceled. The service bulletins manual is available only to
dealers. When doing service work on a vehicle system or part, check for a valid
service bulletin for the latest information on the subject.
IMPORTANT: Before using a particular service bulletin, check the current
service bulletin validity list to be sure the bulletin is valid.

1.
Park the vehicle on a flat, level surface, apply
the parking brakes, and chock the tires.
WARNING
Self−locking bearing−cup or bearing−strap caps−
crews must not be reused; replace the cap−
screws with new ones. Also, do not undertighten
or overtighten any bearing−cup or bearing−strap
capscrews. A loose or broken fastener at any
point in the driveline weakens the driveline con−
nection, which could cause serious vehicle dam−
age, or could result in a driveshaft separating
from the vehicle, possibly causing loss of vehicle
control that could result in serious personal injury
or death.
2. Check the torque of the bearing−cup or bearing−
strap capscrews; see Table 1 for installed torque
values.
Remove and discard any loose capscrews. Do
not reuse any loosened self−locking capscrews;
they are designed for one−time installation only.
Replace all loosened and removed capscrews
with new ones. Tighten the new capscrews as
specified in Table 1.
For half−round yokes with bearing straps, tighten
the bearing−strap capscrews following the tight−
ening sequence shown in Fig. 1, in increments
of 20 lbf·ft (25 N·m) to the torque specifications
listed in Table 1.

3. Check the driveline yokes for cracks, and check
end−yokes for looseness; see Fig. 2.
Replace cracked yokes.
If any end−yoke can be moved in or out on its
shaft, or can be rocked on its shaft, disconnect
the driveshaft and U−joint from the yoke, then
check the drive component´s shaft seal for leak−
age or other visible damage that may have been
caused by the loose yoke. Replace the seal if
needed, then tighten the yoke nut. Refer to Sec−
tion 41.00, Specifications 400 of the Coronado®
Workshop Manual for torque specifications. If the
yoke is still loose after tightening the yoke nut,
replace the end−yoke and yoke nut.
Replace the prevailing torque locknut (end−yoke
nut) if it was removed for yoke replacement, seal
replacement, or any other reason.

Federal Law, Part 205:
Transportation Equipment Noise
Emission Controls
Part 205, Transportation Equipment Noise Emission
Controls, requires the vehicle manufacturer to furnish, with each new vehicle, such written instructions
for the proper maintenance, use, and repair of the
vehicle by the ultimate purchaser to provide reasonable assurance of the elimination or minimization of
noise-emission-control degradation throughout the
life of the vehicle. In compliance with the law, the
noise emission controls maintenance information in
each applicable group of this manual, in conjunction
with the vehicle workshop manual, provides these
instructions to owners.
Recommendations for
Replacement Parts
Replacement parts used for maintenance or repair of
noise emission controls should be genuine Freightliner parts. If other than genuine Freightliner parts
are used for replacement or repair of components
affecting noise emission control, the owner should be
sure that such parts are warranted by their manufacturer to be equivalent to genuine Freightliner parts in
performance and durability.

Engine
01–01 Engine Drive Belt
Inspection
Worn or loose drive belts may cause engine overheating or loss of alternator power. Excessive tension, or too little tension on the belt may result in excessive and premature belt wear or accessory
bearing failure. Serpentine belts are retained by a
belt tensioner that requires no tension adjustment.
Replace the drive belt if any conditions described
below are found. To inspect a belt, gently twist it to
view the belt sidewalls and bottom.
IMPORTANT: For EPDM rubber drive belts, do
not rely on cracking as an indicator of belt wear.
EPDM rubber drive belts resist cracking better
than Neoprene belts. A better indicator of wear
on EPDM belts is material loss.
Belt and Pulley Inspection
1. Inspect the belt for glazing. Glazing is represented by shiny sidewalls, and is caused by friction created when a loose belt slips in the pulleys. It can also be caused by oil or grease on
the pulleys.
2. Check the belt for ply separation. Oil, grease, or
belt dressing can cause the belt to fall apart in
layers. Repair any oil or coolant leaks that are
affecting the belts before replacing the drive
belts. Do not use belt dressing on any belt.
7. For Neoprene belts, check the drive belts for
cracks. Small irregular cracks are usually signs
of an old belt.
8. Inspect the pulleys for excessive play or wobble.
Excessive play or wobble indicates a failure of
the pulley bearing. Check for belt squealing or
squeaking. Replace the bearings as necessary.
NOTE: If it is difficult to distinguish the location
of a supposed bearing noise, place a stethoscope on the component being checked, not the
pulley, to isolate the area from outside interference.
9. Inspect all pulleys for foreign objects, oil, or
grease in the grooves.
Belt Tensioner Inspection
On belts equipped with a spring tensioner, belt tension is automatically adjusted. Check that the tensioner is holding tension on the belt by inserting the
end of a breaker bar in the 1/2-inch square hole on
the forward face of the tensioner, and rotating the
tensioner away from the belt. When the breaker bar
is slowly released, the tensioner should return to its
original position. The tensioner should rotate
smoothly with no binding. If not, see Group 01 of the
Coronado® Workshop Manual for replacement instructions.
3. Check the belt for a jagged or streaked sidewall.
Jagged or streaked sidewalls are the result of
foreign objects, such as sand or gravel in the
pulley, or a rough pulley surface.
4. Check for tensile breaks (breaks in the cord
body). Cuts in a belt are usually caused by foreign objects in the pulley, or by prying or forcing
the belt during removal or installation.
5. Check for uneven ribs on serpentine belts. Foreign objects in the pulley will erode the undercord ribs, causing the belt to lose its gripping
power.
6. For EPDM belts, check the belt for material loss,
which causes the belt to seat further down in the
pulley and to ride directly on the pulley tips. See
Fig. 1.

listed on the battery, generally 10 to 15
lbf·ft (14 to 20 N·m).
7.4
Coat the battery terminals with dielectric
grease.
8. Check the connections at the power net distribution box. Clean and protect the power cables
with dielectric enamel as necessary.
NOTE: Engines equipped with a serpentine belt
have automatic belt tensioners, and do not require belt tension adjustment.
3. Check the alternator wiring for missing insulation,
kinks, and heat damage. Replace or repair as
needed.
4. Check that all electrical connections at the alternator and starter are free of corrosion. Clean and
tighten all charging system electrical connections, including the connections at the starter B
terminal and ground terminal, the magnetic
switch, and where the alternator charging cable
terminates. Apply red dielectric enamel to all exposed connections.
5. Inspect the battery retainer assembly or holddowns, and the battery box. Replace worn or
damaged parts. Remove any corrosion with a
wire brush, and wash with a weak solution of
baking soda and water. Flush with clean water,
and dry. Paint the retainer assembly if needed, to
prevent rusting.

4. Make sure that the cap seals properly on the
coolant filler neck seat, and that the radiator cap
gasket is not damaged. On vehicles with
screw-on caps with O-rings, make sure that the
O-ring is not cracked or deteriorated. Replace
the cap if the gasket shows deterioration or damage.
Do not remove or loosen the surge tank cap until
the engine and cooling system have completely

fluid is changed.
6. For a transmission equipped with a transmission
fluid filter(s), replace the fluid filter(s) as follows.
6.1
Place a drain pan under the transmission
fluid filter.
NOTICE
Operating a transmission with the fluid level
higher or lower than recommended can result in
transmission damage. Do not overfill the transmission. Overfilling will force fluid out of the case
through the main shaft openings.
Do not mix types and brands of fluid, because of
possible incompatibility. Do not use fluid additives, friction modifiers, extreme-pressure gear
fluids, or multiviscosity lubricants.
NOTE: Fluid change intervals are extended to
500,000 miles (800 000 km) on any vehicles
filled with synthetic transmission fluid.
CAUTION
To prevent skin burns from hot transmission fluid,
wear protective gloves when removing the filter.
6.2
Place a strap or chain wrench around the
filter canister, and rotate it in a counterclockwise motion to separate the filter
from the mounting. Carefully spin the filter
off the mount and remove it from the vehicle.
6.3
Apply a light coat of transmission fluid to
the O-ring gasket on the new filter. Fill the
filter with specified transmission fluid, and
spin the filter onto the mount.
1. If the transmission fluid is not at normal operating temperature, run the engine until the fluid
reaches operating temperature.
NOTE: The filter fills slowly, so be patient to
ensure the proper fluid level has been
reached.
2. Park the vehicle on level ground, apply the parking brakes, shift the transmission to neutral (N),
shut down the engine, and chock the tires.
6.4
3. Place a large drain pan under the transmission.
4. Clean the area around the fill plug, and remove it
from the side of the gear case. Remove each
drain plug from the bottom of the case.
5. Clean the fill and drain plugs. For magnetic
plugs, use a piece of key stock or any other convenient steel slug to short the two magnetic
poles and divert the magnetic field.
Once the filter makes contact with the
mount, use a strap wrench to rotate the
canister an additional 180 to 270 degrees
to firmly tighten the filter. Wipe the filter
clean of any fluid after it is tightened.
7. Add fluid until it is level with the lower edge of
the fill opening. See Fig. 1. If the transmission
has two fill openings, add fluid to the level of
both openings. See Table 1 for approved transmission lubricants. See Table 2 for Eaton Fuller
transmission lubricant capacities.
Install and tighten each drain plug 50 lbf·ft (68
N·m).
NOTE: The optional transmission fluid filter is a
remote-mount, spin-on type, and is located between the transmission and the fluid cooler. The
filter bracket is attached to the frame rail or
some other nearby location. The filter is
mounted in a vertical position, and should be

Cold Check
Clean all dirt from around the end of the fluid fill tube
before removing the dipstick. Do not allow foreign
matter to enter the transmission. Dirt or foreign matter in the hydraulic system may cause undue wear of
transmission parts, make valves stick, and clog passages.
It is important to check the fluid level cold to determine if the transmission has a sufficient amount of
fluid to be safely operated until a hot check can be
performed.
1. Park the vehicle on a level surface, apply the
parking brakes, and chock the tires.
2. Run the engine for at least one minute.
3. Shift from DRIVE to NEUTRAL, and then shift to
REVERSE to fill the hydraulic system.
4. Shift to NEUTRAL and allow the engine to idle at
500 to 800 rpm.
5. With the engine running at idle, remove the dipstick from the tube and wipe it clean.
6. Insert the dipstick into the tube, then remove it.
7. Check the fluid level reading, then repeat the
check procedure to verify the reading.
If the fluid level is within the COLD RUN band,
the transmission may be operated until the fluid
is hot enough to perform a hot check.
If the fluid level is not within the COLD RUN
band, add or drain fluid as needed to adjust the
fluid level to the middle of the COLD RUN band.
See Fig. 2.
NOTICE
As the fluid temperature increases, so does the
fluid level. Do not fill above the COLD RUN band if
the transmission fluid is below normal operating
temperature.
NOTE: Perform a hot check at the first opportunity after the normal operating temperature, 160
to 200°F (71 to 93°C), has been reached.

NOTE: Do not use a lube plate (high density
polyethylene) on top of the fifth wheel or on the
kingpin instead of grease without prior approval
by Fontaine Fifth Wheel. The additional thickness of this material can prevent the proper operation of the fifth wheel and may cause a dangerous condition.
NOTE: Fontaine suggests the use of a Moly
based lubricant such as Mobilgrease XHP 320
or equivalent when applying lubricant to the
locking jaw and wedge.
3. Lubricate the fifth wheel prior to opening and
closing it. Separate the jaw and wedge with a
screwdriver, and grease the full length of their
mating surfaces. Lubricate the top and bottom
contact surfaces of the jaw and wedge. See Fig.
4. Open and close the fifth wheel several times
to further distribute the grease.

WARNING
A
Do not replace individual leaves of a damaged leaf
spring assembly; replace the complete spring assembly. Visible damage (cracks or breaks) to one
leaf causes hidden damage to other leaves. Replacement of only the visibly damaged part(s) is
no assurance that the spring is safe. On front
spring assemblies, if cracks or breaks exist in the
two top leaves, a loss of vehicle control could
occur. Failure to replace a damaged spring assembly could cause an accident resulting in property
damage, serious personal injury, or death.
Inspect the front spring assemblies for cracked, broken, or abnormally bent leaves. If any of these conditions exist, replace the spring assembly. See Group
32 of the Coronado® Workshop Manual for instructions.
Composite Springs
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) defines a crack that causes out-of-service conditions for
composite spring assemblies, as a separation in any
axis, which passes completely through the composite
spring material.
For additional information on composite spring assemblies, refer to the CVSA, Out of Service (OOS)
Criteria.
Inspect the Liteflex spring for cracks that result in an
out-of-service condition as follows (see Fig. 1):
• a side to side crack extending beyond 3/4 of the
length of the spring;
• a top to bottom crack extending beyond 3/4 of
the length of the spring;
• intersecting cracks of any length.
The Liteflex composite spring should also be removed from service if splintering has occured to the
point where noticeable vehicle ride height loss has
occurred.

Visually check the air spring piston for cracks, chips,
and broken areas. Check the air bag for rips, tears,
and holes. Verify that the air spring assembly does
not leak. If any of these conditions exist, replace the
damaged parts. See Group 32 of the Coronado®
Workshop Manual for instructions.
IMPORTANT: Before checking the AirLiner suspension height, make sure there is no load on
the chassis, and the trailer is unhitched.
IMPORTANT: To prevent voiding the warranty
on Barksdale height-control valves, note the following:
32/3
32
Suspension
• Do not overtighten the bolts in the Barksdale
height-control valve housing. The bolts should
not be loose, and should not require tightening.
Only if necessary, tighten the valve housing
bolts 45 lbf·in (500 N·cm). Any damage to the
valve housing will void the warranty.
2
1
3
• Do not attempt to disassemble the Barksdale
valve body or the control lever. There are no
serviceable parts in the valve, and any disassembly will void the warranty.
NOTICE
When removing or loosening a Barksdale heightcontrol valve from a mounting bracket, always
hold the valve-side mounting studs in place with
an Allen wrench while loosening or tightening the
nuts that attach the valve to the bracket. Because
the mounting studs are threaded into the valve
body, loosening the nuts without holding the
studs can tighten the studs, which can crush the
valve body and damage the valve. Conversely,
tightening the nuts without holding the studs can
back the studs out, causing a separation of the
two halves of the valve body, and possibly a leak.
1. Park the vehicle on a level surface, using a light
application of the brakes. Do not apply the parking brakes. Shift the transmission into neutral,
and build the secondary air pressure to at least
100 psi (690 kPa). Shut down the engine.
2. Mark the location of the front and rear tires on
the floor, and chock the tires on one axle only.
3. Check that the height-control valve vertical linkage is connected and oriented correctly.
NOTE: The stud bolt that fastens the heightcontrol valve horizontal lever to the vertical linkage is oriented correctly when the linkage rod is
vertical, as viewed from the side of the vehicle;
see Fig. 6. The rod may be on the forward or
aft side of the lever to get it to be vertical.
4. Measure the distance from the axle stop to the
top of the axle U-bolt pad. The correct distance
is determined by the axle and suspension configurations; refer to Group 32 of the Coronado®
Workshop Manual for details.
5. If the axle stop measurement is not correct, see
Group 32 of the Coronado® Workshop Manual
for adjustment procedures.

2. Power wash the suspension, or clean it with a
hard-bristle brush before performing a visual inspection.
3. Inspect the rubber bushings for cracks or other
damage.
Try to move the torque rod ends using your
hands only, and check for any free-play. If freeplay is felt, replace the torque rod end bushing.
Do not use a pry bar to check for free-play. Use
of a pry bar may lead to premature bushing replacement.
Coronado Maintenance Manual, August 2010

4. Lift the rear of the vehicle and support the frame
on jack stands to unload the suspension components. The vehicle is lifted high enough when the
beam ends are off of the saddles.
Inspect the walking beam for cracks or other
damage. If damage is found, replace the walking
beam.
Keep the vehicle supported by the jack stands
for the next operation.
5. Manipulate the walking beam so that a micrometer, vernier, or dial caliper can be used to determine the wear area thickness on the bottom
face. See Fig. 7. Measurements should be taken
a minimum of 1/2 inch from the beam flange
edges to eliminate any edge wear that may have
occurred. Subtract the wear area thickness (see
Fig. 7, Ref. B) from the thickness at the nonwear area (see Fig. 7, Ref. A) to determine the
amount of wear.
If the beams show any wear greater than 0.062
inch (1.5 mm), a Chalmers wear plate must be
installed, or the walking beam must be replaced.

6. Rotate the restrictor cans 360 degrees and inspect the cans for cracks, severe corrosion, and
distortion. If any of these conditions are present,
or the restrictor can is missing, replace the restrictor can.
WARNING
Replace all cracked or missing restrictor cans.
Failure to do so could lead to loss of vehicle control, which could result in property damage, serious personal injury, or death.

NOTICE
When operating under adverse conditions, it may
be necessary to change the axle lubricant at more
frequent intervals than listed in the scheduled
maintenance tables. Failure to do so could result
in axle damage.
IMPORTANT: For all axles, including tandemdrive axles and two-speed axles, do the procedures under the heading, "All Axle Models." For
a two-speed axle with a shift unit, also change
the shift unit lubricant. See under the heading,
"Two-Speed Axles With Shift Unit."
On tandem-drive axles, it is also necessary to
remove the plug at the bottom of the interaxle
differential housing to drain that lubricant.
3. If equipped with an oil pump, remove the axle oil
filter. Use a suitable filter strap wrench; see Fig.
1. Discard the old filter.
NOTE: There may be about one pint (0.5 L) of
lubricant remaining in the filter. Be careful not to
spill it when removing the filter.
4. Using the recommended drive axle lubricant,
coat the face of the gasket on the new oil filter, if
one was removed. Install the filter over the
adapter, and tighten the filter one full turn after
the gasket contacts the base; do not overtighten.
See Table 1 for recommended lubricants.
5. Clean the fill and drain plugs as follows. Change
them if necessary.

IMPORTANT: If using synthetic lubricant in an
axle equipped with a pump and filter system,
the lubricant change interval is extended to
500,000 miles (800 000 km).
IMPORTANT: Meritor rear axles do not require
the use of friction modifiers.
1. Park the vehicle on level ground, apply the parking brakes, and chock the front tires.
2. Remove the axle carrier fill plug. Then remove
the drain plug from the bottom of the housing.

WARNING
Self-locking bearing-cup or bearing-strap capscrews must not be reused; replace the capscrews with new ones. Also, do not undertighten
or overtighten any bearing-cup or bearing-strap
capscrews. A loose or broken fastener at any
point in the driveline weakens the driveline connection, which could cause serious vehicle damage, or could result in a driveshaft separating
from the vehicle, possibly causing loss of vehicle
control that could result in serious personal injury
or death.
2. Check the torque of the bearing-cup or bearingstrap capscrews; see Table 1 for installed torque
values.
Remove and discard any loose capscrews. Do
not reuse any loosened self-locking capscrews;
they are designed for one-time installation only.
Replace all loosened and removed capscrews
with new ones. Tighten the new capscrews as
specified in Table 1.
For half-round yokes with bearing straps, tighten
the bearing-strap capscrews following the tightening sequence shown in Fig. 1, in increments

end-yokes for looseness; see Fig. 2.
Replace cracked yokes.
If any end-yoke can be moved in or out on its
shaft, or can be rocked on its shaft, disconnect
the driveshaft and U-joint from the yoke, then
check the drive component’s shaft seal for leakage or other visible damage that may have been
caused by the loose yoke. Replace the seal if
needed, then tighten the yoke nut. Refer to Section 41.00, Specifications 400 of the Coronado®
Workshop Manual for torque specifications. If the
yoke is still loose after tightening the yoke nut,
replace the end-yoke and yoke nut.
Replace the prevailing torque locknut (end-yoke
nut) if it was removed for yoke replacement, seal
replacement, or any other reason.
4. Check U-joint assemblies for wear by moving the
driveshaft up and down, and from side to side. If
any movement of the U-joint cross in the bearings can be felt or seen, replace the U-joint assembly.
5. Check if the midship bearing and mounting are
loose or have deteriorated, by attempting to
move the driveshaft up and down, and from side
to side. If the bearing is loose on its shaft, or
rattles, replace it. If the bearing mount is loose
on the frame, tighten the mounting fasteners to
the proper torque value. See Section 41.00,

1. If equipped with a grease fitting, wipe all old
grease and dirt from the slip joint grease fitting;
see Fig. 6, Ref. 1.
1. Park the vehicle on a flat surface, apply the parking brakes, and chock the tires.
2. Wipe all old grease and dirt from each U-joint
grease fitting; see Fig. 6, Ref. 8.
3. Use a hand-type grease gun, or a high-pressure
gun with a low-pressure adapter, to lubricate
U-joints. If a low-pressure adapter is not used,
U-joints may not receive enough grease.
Using lithium 12-Hydroxy stearate grease (NLGI
Grade 2, with EP additives), lubricate until new
grease can be seen at all four U-joint seals.
Fresh grease must be seen escaping from all
four bearing-cap seals of each U-joint. On fullround yokes equipped with a bearing cup, if most
of the grease being added to a U-joint can be
seen escaping from just one of the U-joint seals,
check the torque on the capscrews at that seal.
2. Use a hand-type grease gun or a high-pressure
gun with a low-pressure adapter, to lubricate the
slip joint. Add multipurpose chassis grease
(lithium 12-hydroxy stearate, NLGI Grade 2, with
EP additives) until it appears at the pressurerelief hole in the yoke plug. Then cover the relief
hole with your finger, while continuing to apply
gun pressure until new grease appears at the
slip joint seal; see Fig. 6. This ensures complete
lubrication of the splines.
3. Wipe the purged grease from the pressure-relief
hole and slip joint seal, and any excess grease
from the grease fitting.
4. Tighten the bearing-cup capscrews 43 lbf·ft (58
N·m). If the capscrews were already tight, or all
of the U-joint seals still do not purge, remove the
bearing cup at that seal, and examine the seal
for damage. If the seal is damaged, replace the
complete U-joint.
5. If grease does not appear at one seal, use a prying tool to pry the U-joint trunnion away from the
non-purging seal, or tap the driveshaft or yoke
with a plastic or rawhide mallet on the side opposite the dry seal, while continuing to lubricate. If
grease still does not appear, loosen the capscrews at the bearing with the dry seal, to relieve
seal tension. Lubricate the U-joint until new
grease is seen at the seal, then tighten the capscrews to the correct torque specifications. If the
bearing will not take grease, replace the U-joint;
see Group 41 of the Coronado® Workshop
Manual.
6. Check the purged grease. If it appears rusty,
gritty, or burned, replace the U-joint.
7. Wipe the purged grease from the seals, and any
excess grease from the grease fitting.

replaced. The following conditions could cause
small amounts of moisture to be found in the air
system:
10. Install the desiccant cartridge on the end cover,
making sure the cartridge is properly seated and
flush on the end cover.
• An outside air source has been used to
charge the air brake system. This air did
not pass through the drying bed.
NOTE: It may be necessary to rotate the cartridge slightly until the anti-rotation lugs are
properly aligned and allow the cartridge to rest
flush against the end cover.
• Air usage is unusually high and not normal.
This may be due to accessory air demands
or some unusual air requirement that does
not allow the compressor to load and unload in a normal fashion. Check for air system leaks.
11. Using a wrench or socket, tighten the desiccant
cartridge bolt 70 lbf·ft (95 N·m). Do notovertorque.
12. Before placing the vehicle in service, perform the
test below.
12.1
Close all reservoir drain cocks.
12.2
Build system pressure to governor cutout, and note that the AD-IP air dryer
purges with an audible escape of air.
12.3
Fan the service brakes to reduce system
air pressure to governor cut-in. Note that
the system once again builds to full pressure and is followed by a purge at the
AD-IP air dryer exhaust.
12.4
Check for excessive leakage around the
head of the desiccant cartridge where it
contacts the end cover. With the compressor in loaded mode (compressing
air), apply a soapy solution to these
areas, and observe that any leakage
does not exceed a 1-inch bubble in 1
second. If leakage exceeds this measure,
remove and re-install the desiccant cartridge.
42–03 Air Dryer Inspection
1. Park the vehicle on a level surface, apply the
parking brakes, and chock the tires.
2. Check for moisture in the air brake system by
opening the reservoir drain cocks. Examine the
discharge. Some trace of water in the discharge
is normal. A discharge of a milky gray liquid indicates excessive moisture is present in the air
system and the desiccant cartridge needs to be
42/4
• The air dryer has been installed on a system that had previously been operated
without an air dryer. This type of system
will be saturated with moisture, and several
weeks of operation may be needed to fully
dry the system.
• The temperature range in your area fluctuates more than 30 degrees in one day.
Small amounts of water can accumulate in
the air brake system due to condensation.
Under these conditions, the presence of
moisture is normal and should not be considered an indication of poor air dryer performance.
3. Inspect the air dryer for external damage, and
check that the unit is tightly mounted on the
frame. If the air dryer mounting is loose, See
Group 42 of the Coronado® Workshop Manual
for mounting instructions.
4. Turn on the ignition switch, but do not start the
engine.
5. Disconnect the harness connector from the air
dryer.
6. Connect a voltmeter to circuit 94 on the air dryer’s harness connector and to a body ground
point. Check for battery voltage. If voltage is not
found, check and repair the open or short to
ground in wire 94.
7. Connect a voltmeter between the two terminals
on the air dryer’s harness connector. If voltage is
not found, repair the open in the ground circuit
wiring.
8. Use an ohmmeter to check resistance between
the terminals on the end cover. See Fig. 4. The
end cover contains the heater/thermostat. If the
heater/thermostat is between 40 and 90°F (5 and
Coronado Maintenance Manual, January 2010
42
Brakes
32°C), the heater/thermostat measured resistance will be infinite ohms. If the measured resistance is less than infinity, replace the
heater/thermostat.
Off Season
During the off season, drain the unit of alcohol. At
regular engine service intervals, open the drain cock
to remove moisture from the alcohol evaporator. Before reactivating the evaporator for the next freeze
season, drain, disassemble, inspect, and steamclean the unit of any sludge that may have accumulated. It is advisable to replace any rubber parts
when assembling the alcohol evaporator. Perform
this service just before the freeze season.
Freeze Season Reactivation
1. Park the vehicle on a level surface and apply the
parking brakes. Shut down the engine. Chock
the tires.
2. Remove the filler cap, and check the cap tetraseal.
3. Remove the capscrews and reservoir from the
cover.

9. Remove the heater/thermostat assembly and
place it in a freezer for about five minutes to cool
it below 40°F (5°C). Remove the cold
heater/thermostat assembly and check resistance between the heater/thermostat terminals.
Resistance should be 1.5 to 3.0 ohms. As the
temperature of the heater/thermostat assembly
increases, the ohm reading will increase. When
the temperature goes above 45°F (7°C) measured resistance should be infinite ohms. If the
heater/thermostat does not operate as outlined,
replace it. If it does operate as outlined, install it.
42–04 Alcohol Evaporator
Cleaning and Inspection
Maintenance is required during both the freeze season and the off season to keep the alcohol evaporator in good working order.

5. Drain the air tank, and disconnect the line from
the evaporator outlet. Remove the check-valve
retainer, spring, and disc.
6. Install the disc, spring, and check-valve retainer,
and connect the line to the evaporator outlet.
7. Install the cover tetraseal.
8. Install the reservoir on the cover and tighten the
capscrews.
9. Fill the reservoir with 40 ounces (1183 mL) of
methyl alcohol, then install the filler cap.
42–05 Brake Inspection
IMPORTANT: This procedure should be performed prior to lubrication of the brake components.
Parking Brake Operational Check
CAUTION
Perform the following check in a clear safe area. If
the parking brakes fail to hold the vehicle, personal injury or property damage may result.

42
Brakes
1. With the engine running, and air pressure at cutout pressure, set the parking brake.
2. Put the vehicle in the lowest gear and gently attempt to move it forward. The vehicle should not
move. If the vehicle moves, the parking brakes
are not operating correctly and must be repaired
before the vehicle is returned to service. See
Group 42 of the Coronado® Workshop Manual
for repair procedures.
Brake Component Inspection
1. Park the vehicle on a level surface, set the parking brake, and chock the tires. Once the tires are
chocked, release the parking brake.
WARNING
Manually adjusting an automatic slack adjuster to
bring the pushrod stroke within legal limits is
likely masking a mechanical problem. Adjustment
is not repairing. Before adjusting an automatic
slack adjuster, troubleshoot the foundation brake
system and inspect it for worn or damaged components. Improperly maintaining the vehicle braking system may lead to brake failure, resulting in
property damage, personal injury, or death.
2. With the engine off, and 100 psi (689 kPa) of air
tank pressure, have an assistant apply and hold
an 80 to 90 psi (550 to 620 kPa) brake application.
3. Check to see if the colored over-stroke band on
each brake chamber pushrod is exposed.
If a band shows, the stroke is too long. Check
the foundation brake components for wear or
damage, and repair as needed. See Group 42 of
the Coronado® Workshop Manual for inspection,
troubleshooting, and repair procedures.
4. Measure the applied chamber stroke. See Table
1 for the proper stroke for the type of chamber
being used. If the stroke is too short, the brakes
may drag or will not fully apply. Check for improper operation or adjustment of the automatic
slack adjuster. See Group 42 of the Coronado®
Workshop Manual for inspection and troubleshooting procedures.
5. Start the engine and build air pressure to at least
100 psi (689 kPa). Shut down the engine.
6. Check all of the foundation brake components for
damage, wear, and loose or missing parts. Repair as needed. See Group 42 of the Coronado®
Workshop Manual for repair procedures.

will be reduced if this type of grease is used,
which could lead to brake failure, resulting in
property damage, personal injury, or death.
Lubricate the automatic slack adjuster at the grease
fitting. See Fig. 7. Use standard chassis lubricant for
Haldex slack adjusters. Dana Spicer Low Lube slack
adjusters should be lubricated with SHC 460 synthetic lubricant.
Gunite
For operating temperatures of –20°F (–29°C) and
higher, use Texaco Multifak EP-2 or Mobil Grease
No. 77.
For operating temperatures between –20°F (–29°C)
and –40°F (–40°C), use Lubriplate Aero grease.
Lubricate a Gunite automatic slack adjuster at the
grease fitting until grease appears on the camshaft,
or flows from the grease relief. See Fig. 8.

49–01 Exhaust System
Inspection (Noise
Emission Control)
In addition to inspecting the exhaust system at the
scheduled maintenance interval, inspect the exhaust
system if the noise level of the vehicle has increased. Freightliner Trucks recommends replacing
parts that show leakage, wear, or damage, with
genuine Freightliner parts.
It is a violation of US federal law to alter exhaust
plumbing or aftertreatment in any way that would
bring the engine out of compliance with certification
requirements. (Ref: 42 U.S.C. S7522(a) (3).) It is the
owner’s responsibility to maintain the vehicle so that
it conforms to EPA regulations.
Definitions of ATS Terms
Refer to the following list of definitions of ATS terms
and components.
• Aftertreatment System (ATS)—the entire exhaust system from the turbocharger to the exhaust stack or tail pipe.
• Aftertreatment Device (ATD)—a housing that
contains the DOC and DPF (also the SCR and
the mixing tube in one-box systems).
• BlueTec®—Daimler’s proprietary SCR technology.
• Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC)—a flowthrough device that oxidizes soot in the ATD.
• Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)—a component in
the ATD that traps soot from the exhaust gas.
• Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF)—the chemical agent
that reacts with the exhaust gases in the SCR
to reduce NOx.
• DEF Pump—filters and supplies DEF to the
DEF metering unit.
• DEF Tank—holds DEF and regulates its temperature.
• DEF Metering Unit—mixes DEF with compressed air, and meters this mixture into the
exhaust flow via an injection nozzle.
• SCR Catalyst—the housing containing a treated
ceramic flow-through block where the DEF and
Coronado Maintenance Manual, January 2010
exhaust gases undergo selective catalytic reduction (SCR).
• Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)—a process
used to reduce NOx emissions.
EPA10 Exhaust System
Inspection
To meet EPA10 emissions regulations for vehicles
domiciled in the USA or Canada, engines manufactured after December 31, 2009 are equipped with an
emission aftertreatment system. Vehicles domiciled
outside of the USA and Canada may not have aftertreatment equipment, depending upon local statutory
emissions guidelines.
IMPORTANT: The aftertreatment device (ATD),
which is part of the aftertreatment system (ATS),
requires special attention during regularly
scheduled maintenance inspections. No leaks
are allowed anywhere in the system. If any discrepancies are discovered, refer to the engine
manufacturer’s service literature for repair instructions.
1. Check for leakage at the clamp that attaches the
exhaust pipe to the turbocharger exhaust outlet.
If leakage exists, tighten the nut on the clamp to
the required torque. If leakage persists, install a
new clamp.
2. Check the exhaust pipe, bellows, and each exhaust seal clamp for leakage, wear, cracks, or
damage. Replace damaged components as
needed. If leakage exists at a clamp, tighten the
nuts to the required torque. If leakage persists,
install a new exhaust seal clamp. Do not reuse
seal clamps. Once a seal clamp is loosened or
removed, it must be replaced.
3. If present, check the condition of the insulation
material around the exhaust pipe between the
turbocharger and the ATD.
4. Check the ATD mounting bands for tightness.
Tighten to 30 lbf·ft (41 N·m) if needed. Do not
overtighten.
5. Check for leaks around the clamps that attach
the ATD in the ATS, and around the clamps that
retain the DPF in the ATD.
6. Check all sensors attached to the ATS for leaks
or damaged wires. No leaks are allowed. See
49/1
49
Exhaust
NOTE: Diesel exhaust fluid creeps, causing
white crystals to form around the line fittings.
The presence of crystals does not mean the
system has a leak. Replacing fittings or troubleshooting components is not necessary unless
there is a system failure or a fault code.
Fig. 1, Fig. 2, or Fig. 3 for Detroit Diesel ATS
sensor locations.
7. Check the DPF exterior surface for dents or
other damage. A dent over 3 inches (76 mm) in
diameter and 1/4-inch (6-mm) deep could cause
internal damage to the DPF, causing it to malfunction.
8. Check the SCR catalyst for dents and other
damage.
10. Check the DEF tank, pump, metering unit, and
lines for leaks. See Section 49.01 of the Coronado® Workshop Manual for repair procedures.
9. Check for heat discoloration on the surface of
the ATD. Heat discoloration may indicate internal
damage; especially around the DPF.
11. Check any wires, lines, or hoses within 4 inches
(10 cm) of the exhaust system for heat damage.
Repair or reroute as needed.

Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) Filter
Replacement
The Environmental Protection Agency’s 2010 regulations require lower nitrogen oxide (NOx) exhaust
emissions. Selective catalytic reduction (SCR) uses
diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) to lower NOx emissions in
the vehicle exhaust. A filter in the DEF pump prevents clogging of the DEF metering unit injection
nozzle.
See the engine manufacturer’s maintenance manual
for filter replacement instructions and maintenance
intervals.

Lubrication
NOTICE
Do not lubricate the door hinges. Lubrication
could adversely affect the performance of the
hinge bushings.
NOTE: Light penetrating oils, such as WD–40,
should not be used because they wash out beneficial factory-installed grease, and they evaporate.
Door Seals
Lightly coat the door seals with a lubricant that is
safe for rubber.
Door Latches
Wipe old grease and dirt from all door latch assemblies, then apply liberal amounts of an approved
grease to each moving joint; see Table 1. Use an
appropriate applicator that will not leave material
behind.
Door Checks
Wipe old grease and dirt from door checks. Lubricate
each moving joint of the door checks at installation
and every six months thereafter, with an approved
grease; see Table 1. Use an appropriate applicator
that will not leave material behind.

A
WARNING
Wear eye protection, gloves, and protective clothing when working on the air conditioning system.
Leaking refrigerant from a damaged hose or line
could cause blindness or serious skin burns.
1. Park the vehicle on a level surface, apply the
parking brakes, and chock the tires.
2. Inspect the A/C compressor hub. A torn or
melted rubber dampener (center section) indicates internal damage has occurred within the
compressor. Inspect friction surfaces for wear,
oil-soaked condtions, or discoloration due to excessive heat.
3. With the belt removed, check to make sure that
the rotor (pulley) spins freely. It should not
wobble or make contact with the hub when it is
spinning. The average air gap between the hub
and rotor should be 0.014 to 0.024 inch (0.35 to
0.6 mm). Check the gap at several locations and
average the results. See Fig. 1.
4. Check the overall condition of the air conditioning
hoses. Look for cracks, cuts, and abrasions on
the hoses. Replace damaged hoses. For replacement instructions, see Group 83 of the
Coronado® Workshop Manual. Also check for
signs of loose fittings on all of the air conditioning components.
83–02 Air Filter Replacement
The HVAC system has three filters that must be replaced periodically to maintain proper system operation. The cabin fresh-air-intake filter is accessed from
under the hood, and the recirculation filter is accessed from inside the cab. The sleeper air filter is
located under the bunk.
