Re: Injectors leaking fuel into oil
Yes, I did buy the injectors from RCD, in the first week driving one blew a tip off so I pulled the head again to dig the injector tip out of the piston and bought another 190 injector. Shorlty after I went overseas, this is when the oil became diluted, the wife was driving it unitl it she noticed it was getting harder and harder to start and then the truck was parked unitl I came home again. I sure hope the bearings in the bottom end did not get damaged from the diluted oil, I would not be surprised if I have an early bearing failure. I drained over 20 litres of oil from the engine so there was 6+ litres of diesel in the oil.
Im glad to see that RCD posted a response because I did buy the injectors from them, if you guys (RCD) are willing to get these things fixed I would really appreciate it. I have three 6.0s and so far my biggest regret has been these injectors. I did not mention your name in my initial post because Im not out to bash, just wanted to know if this has happened to anyone else and what needs to be done to get it fixed. I would actually like to enjoy driving my truck again, it has been an ordament in front of the house for way too long.
From now on when I install injectors I think Im going to turn the fuel pump on and confirm that none of them leak externally, I dont want to risk ruining an engine ever again.
