RE: Assume diesel and gasser have same torque, compare...

This is an easy question, the way it has been presented. Justlabs is 100% correct. This discussion will be full of ignorance, but there is one and only one answer. The vehicle with the most "POWER" wins. Not only that, but torque is 100% irrelevant. However the statement of a 1000 rpm difference is far off. The rpm difference is likely to be 4000 or more. I would not want to have to whip out the CC for the gas vehicle in this scenario. The cost per 1000ft of elevation gain will be double or triple in the gas truck.

RE: Engine Braking?

We currently program exhaust braking (turbine restriction) into Duramax custom tuning as a free feature. It is transparent, requires no hardware and doubles grade braking force over what the allison alone provides. An additional 75-100HP to slow the train. It is especially appreciated by "rpm shy" customers with loads over 15K out west. The only time they hit the brakes is to force a downshift.

RE: Exhaust brake?

Simple question here: I've got a 2002 C3500 DRW CC with 8.1L V8 and Allison tranny. Does this set up have an exhaust brake built in? Thanks in advance. Pigdoc No. There is no turbo turbine to use as a pseudo-restriction in the exhaust stream.

RE: Duramax Won't Start

You likely have a crack in your fuel filter housing. Your engine started on the fuel in the lines, but because the fuel filter was empty, the engine ran out of fuel soon after. Reprime the fuel filter with pump on top. It should run after this, but will probably empty again over time when unused.

RE: Clean Exhaust Filter readout

My mistake, it's a 2008 (dang, time sure goes fast). That is prior to the DPF mandate. All 2008 have dpf from the factory in the US. Many choose to remove it because of the problem messages and expensive repair bill they create. Also for the 2-4 mpg increase.

RE: Clean Exhaust Filter readout

Have him give us a call. He may need dpf delete programming if he has chosen to remove the dpf (exhaust filter for the 07-12 vehicles) My son has a 2010 Chevy D/A. While he was driving yesterday he heard a tone and saw this readout on his display, CLEAN EXHASUT FILTER (see manual). He couldn't find anything in the manual about it. Someone at work told him it meant to just drive it for a few miles and it would go off. It does not have DPF, just for infor. and probably has less than 10,000 miles. Can someone enlighten us please?

RE: reached the limit on my chevy exhaust brake

Tow/haul mode?? I am certain that you have no torque converter lockup in 1st. I am making only a guess here, that the brake may be disabled in first gear to prevent burning up the converter. Have you tried 2nd gear?

RE: New to us TV overheating??

The fan comes on to add cooling capacity. It does not indicate overheat. Because it is overdriven, it is quite loud. That is normal for LLY.
