Hello, I just purchased a 2000 international with a DT466e 7.6l C195 with 68k on the odometer. I believe this millage is correct as the bus came from the Philadelphia school district. On my journey home (about 35 miles) I observed 2 problems. 1 the engine has no balls, it is gutless it slowed down to 25 mph going over the bridge.
2 It was overheating if I kept it up to highway speeds 55 - 60 mph. I let off the pedal once it started getting hot and was able to keep the overheating under control letting off the pedal and slowing down. I've torn into the engine and found 2 problems so far. 1 there is a gash in the lower Turbo air line going into the intercooler, that appears to have been cause by the fan. 2 The radiator and engine are guck'd up with road grime and oil. The gash in the turbo accounts for the engine being gutless, and the clogged up radiator would make it run hot.
My question is are there any other common problems with this engine. I am willing to replace the sensors that are problem children in hopes that there is less of chance for an on the road repair. I already have plans on a complete fluid change and drained the nasty coolant already.
If anyone has more information then I do
