Never, never do this!

I learned to never put seal swelling type leak stoppers in a Cummins. They make the engine leak worse. My truck looks like it has the ebola virus!

Leaks

Postby gharger » Tue Apr 08, 2008 7:55 am

My CTD with 259k on it is amasingly leak free and is why I keep putting off checking the kdp fearing I may start a leak. :? Got to do it...I'm hoping when I actually start the job I can spot some sign of a replaced timing gear gasket or something.

Ever seen one that loaded the crankcase with diesel (ruptured lift pump diaphragm) and put it all out the crankcase vent?

Didn't realize it was happening (dark out) until oil pressure fluctuation told me something was up.
When daylight came the truck and trailer were HOSED down with the stuff!
I just changed oil, put on an electric pump and kept on trucking.

It got washed, eventually. :D

So true! My truck leaves a couple drips wherever it goes... Mainly from the transfer case seals/gaskets.
