Recommending Antifreeze/Coolant for Heavy-Duty Engines

Recommending Antifreeze/Coolant for Heavy-Duty Engines

There are three basic formulations of heavy-duty antifreeze/coolant.

Today’s heavy-duty engines are more sophisticated than previous generations.

While this has helped to reduce emissions and squeeze more power out of engines that are running hotter than ever, the downside is these engines are far more expensive to repair if something goes wrong. To avoid unnecessary repairs, maintaining the modern-day cooling system is the essential link to maintaining the entire system.

The most immediate concern for any heavy-duty operator has to be maintaining their fleet’s cooling-system levels with the right type of antifreeze/coolant, while knowing precisely when the appropriate interval has been reached for recharging or changing the coolant.

What Are Direct Ignition Coils?

The stick coil eliminates ignition wires and utilizes wasted space by fitting neatly into the spark plug bore.

Direct ignition coils are by far the most common type of ignition coil found in modern direct ignition systems, and they’ve been adopted by most of the major automakers. In this design, the coil mounts directly on top of the spark plug, eliminating the need for an ignition wire.
