Check out this Quigley 4X4 van. Came in with coolant dripping out of the exhaust. (EGR Cooler). Also has compression in the cooling system. Found HG blown on both sides in multiple places. Ended up getting the full treatment, including a full engine block flush to get the oil/coolant out. Van is back up and running great!

Double R Diesel

We have recently become dealers for the MM3 tuners using the Double R Diesel custom tuning. On the Cummins powered 4th gen trucks this is hands down the most reliable, efficient tuning yet. And yes this includes you chassis/cab guys

DT466 came in with low power issues and smoke, another shop attempted to fix it with a new down pipe clamp.... don’t think this is going to fix this one.

There are times when repairs are flawed by Parts issues. This is an overhaul that was performed by us a couple months ago. Customer complaint of oil consumption. Engine is a DD5 series 60 14l. Confirmed blow by was out of spec, pulled the head and found severe scoring on the cylinders. Pulled pistons and liners pistons, rings completely carbon packed. All parts were checked for improper installation, it was found that the wrong prisons were put in the overhaul kit. We stood to our warranty, replaced all liners, pistons ,rings no cost to the customer. Regardless of who made the mistake it needs to be taken care of!!!! We stand behind our work.

Here at NDP we know the #1 reason we all have diesels is simply for the power with reliability! If that was not important we would go buy a gas truck. Before we stand behind anything it must be proven! Here we are installing the DPS stocker twin kit on the 4th gen work truck. The reason is well.. this truck gets worked and the HE351VE was not flowing enough, sending the EGT and drive pressure trough the roof. We chose the BW S480 with billet wheel due to prior modifications studs,100 HP nozzles etc... The kit came from DPS the fitment and quality was excellent. So far this has been on the truck for over 20k miles no leaks, problems, no adjustments have been made. We wanted to keep the set up the same and test. EGT drop of over 500 degrees drive pressure halved! Next up tuner reviews.

Finished up and delivered back to the customer. Pete 379 with a CAT 3406E. Engine had severe blow by and was rolling the white smoke. Pulled down found the air cleaners not sealing. Engine got a fresh bottom end along with cut counter boars to bring up liner protrusion. Due to a recent prior overhaul everything else was disassembled cleaned and checked.
