Too bad your engine is not mechanical. For $35 you could buy new factory reman injectors.

I would have loved a mechanical DT466. I just couldn't get my hands on one that was worth what they were asking.

Just for the heck of it. Check your air filter for restrictions or just real darn dirty.

That would be black smoke but still worth checking.

Uhg. Still haven't pulled these injectors. I pulled the valve cover to find that the injector is under the cam shaft. It doesn't look like it will come up without pulling the cam. Has anyone ever sent fluids in for testing. I wonder if the can find diesel in the oil. To be sure. Here is my other issue with bring it to a shop. Nearest shop is 20miles away in the capital city and the bus can't be registered until it can be changed to an RV.

I have a few times, and yes it should show if there is a significant amount of fuel dilution.

I know it's a late post but,

I had the same issue with my '98 3126B. The problem with mine was a worn cylinder due to the injector not firing. The guy who owned it before me ran it for quite some time dry because there was no fuel running into it to keep it lubed, so it scratched the cylinder sleeve, and I had serious blow by.

Mechanic told me he could rebuild it, but he would only do so by rebuilding the whole motor to a tune of $9000. I bought a used motor out of a wrecked school bus for $4600 including shipping.

That was last July. Hopefully I will get it back in the next few weeks. (I learned to never tell an Alabama diesel mechanic to take your time getting it together!!)

But now I have a newer motor with less miles on it and I have the original one to rebuild on my own to make my money back. (Not to mention, 5 back up injectors that cost $300 each and some accessories I can sell on ebay!!!)
