Bad Rings Common in the 5.9????
Ok I was on another forum site and I happened to read a thread in which one poster was talking about his truck burning oil at around 100,000 miles and consuming large amounts out of the blue. The thread posts then began to discuss how the 5.9 cummins common rails are known for #1 and #6 Piston Ring Failures... It then discussed how adding any programmer will cause this quite easily. I take good care of my truck and so did my buddy that I bought it from. It currently has 56,000 on it, so is this a major issue and what are the ways to protect it? Does a tuner like Edge or Smarty cause such a failure especially if you are not beating on it? Thanks for any and all info guys...
