Difficult Cold Start
Several things could be causing difficult cold starts for your Cummins Semi:
Solution: Treat the engine with the Stiction Eliminator, and run it for one full oil change interval.
Cause: Poor fuel quality
Solution: If you suspect poor fuel quality, treat with Diesel Extreme. In winter, treat with a half-dose of Diesel Extreme and a full dose of Diesel Winter Anti-Gel.
Cause: Grid heater problem
Solution: Check the grid heater
Low boost when the truck is cold could be caused by stiction in the turbo bearing. Treating with our Stiction Eliminator should clear this out. A problem with the grid heater could be something as simple as corroded battery cables, making the heater not work at full capacity, or it could be a complete failure of the grid heater.
