Cummins Carnage

Clogged Piston Cooling Nozzle

6.7L piston carnage

     The culprit behind this carnage ended up being a clogged piston cooling nozzle...


 It's the number 6 piston out of a 22,000-mile 6.7L Cummins, which is just a shame. When the engine was torn down, pieces of rubber were found in that cylinder's respective oil jet. This leads us to believe either a faulty oil filter was used (and came apart), or something was left in the squirter's vicinity at the factory. As durable as our engines are (especially the Cummins), it's amazing how one little thing can cause such a headache.
