Common Heavy-duty Engine Damage
Blown Head Gasket
Contrary to popular belief, your engine block is actually two parts joined together. The first piece, the cylinder head, and the second part, your cylinder block, are joined together using a gasket. This gasket allows each piece to expand and contract when at different temperatures. If your engine overheats for a prolonged period of time, this gasket may blow. Common symptoms of a blown head gasket include white smoke coming from your exhaust, poor fuel economy, and mass consumption of engine coolant.
Stuck EGR Valve
When an EGR valve gets stuck open, far too much of your exhaust is being recirculated into your combustion chamber. This higher-than-normal flow drops the combustion temperature far too low and can stifle the presence of oxygen. This combination often leads to performance issues, fuel economy issues, and an incredibly rough idle.
