what are you doing for fuel filtration?
So bad fuel makes them crack I guess?
I'd like to see that recommendation. Wonder if someone could get the real deal from Bosch? It's probably a can of worms they'd rather not open by sharing that info. Customer relationship and all that. The end user gets screwed on that deal.if the engine has ever had a RP increasing box on it or the RP sensor is defective and reading low, I've never heard of that happening, but it makes sense. Have you seen this a number of times?both will cause high RPs, injector body killers plus increased abrasion wear
both problems exacerbated by high engine loads towing loads with resulting higher RP duty cycle.
Bosch Engineering produced an internal white paper on fuel filtration recommendations, they recommended a max. particle size of 3 micron. There is a pirated copy floating around on the internet cloud out there. Dodge refused to follow the inj. manuf. filtration specs. we pay the price.
by the time the injectors started failing in mass, Daimler AG was already looking for a buyer to get out of it's Chrysler financial nightmare. Cerberus was not a problem solver, they were only interested in milking Chrysler out, they took the cash and Cut and Ran.
the OEM Dodge canister filter is a piece of garbage, may as well have a roll of toilet paper in the canister
What makes you think the injector bodies are cracking? Under stock power levels, a sensor failure aside, cracking the bodies is rare. Mor eoften than not it is wearing the pintle seat and the injector is never sealing. That sis a constant stream of fuel into the cylinder which melts the piston and fills the crank with diesel.I may not be very bright, but I just can't figure how bad fuel can make an injector body crack open.
