FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

4/20/2016 - WARSAW, IN
WHEN OUR VEHICLE IS OPERATING AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS THE VEHICLE LOSES ALL POWER AS IF YOU HAD TURNED OFF THE IGNITION SWITCH AND THEN TURNED IT BACK ON. THIS LASTS FOR A FEW SECONDS WHERE TOTAL CONTROL TO THE VEHICLE IS LOST BEFORE IT RESUMES NORMAL WORKING CONDITIONS. WE HAVE SPOKEN TO THE LOCAL FREIGHTLINER DEALER WHO HAS ADVISED US THAT THIS IS A COMMON ISSUE WITH THESE UNITS, HOWEVER, THEY ARE UNAWARE OF WHAT CAUSES THIS ISSUE AND ARE UNABLE TO FIX IT. WE DO NOT CURRENTLY HAVE ANY REPAIR ITEMS TO INCLUDE WITH THIS AS THE DEALER HAS NOT CHARGED US FOR ANY WORK DUE TO THEIR INABILITY TO REPAIR IT. THIS PUTS ANY DRIVER IN A COMPROMISED POSITION AS THEY ARE UNABLE TO CONTROL THEIR TRUCK DURING THESE PERIODS OF COMPLETE POWER OUTAGE. THE POWER OUTAGE ON THE UNIT HAS HAPPENED ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS WITH THIS UNIT WITH NO REMEDY PROVIDED FROM THE DEALER.

POWER TRAIN

2/28/2015 - GRAND PRAIRIE, TX
1. AT FIRST, I FELT THE VEHICLE HESITATE WHEN I UP-SHIFT. I GOT INTO THE HIGHWAY AND THE ENGINE STARTED TO MISS GRADUALLY AND GETTING WORSE. I PULLED INTO A FREIGHT-LINER AND THE SAY THAT FUEL LINE IS CONTAMINATED BECAUSE THE FUEL PUMP BROKE INSIDE. THEY SAID THEY HAVE TO FLUSH OUT THE LINES AND REPLACE THE FILTER, INJECTORS, FUEL PUMP AND HIGH PRESSURE FUEL LINES. I JUST BOUGHT A FULL TANK OF DIESEL BEFORE THE INCIDENT. ALL THE FUEL WILL BE DUMPED AND FUEL TANKS WILL BE CLEANED. I HAVE THE ESTIMATED REPAIR TO COST OVER $10,000 DOLLARS. I CALLED DAIMLER CORPORATE OFFICE TO SEE IF THEY COULD HELP ME TO COVER SOME OF THE BILLS THEY DECLINED WITH THE EXCUSE THAT THE TRUCK IS 38,000 MILES OVER THE WARRANTY AN ESTIMATE OF ABOUT 2 MONTHS.THIS PROBLEM IS NOT MY FAULT, IT IS A DEFECTIVE PRODUCT. 2. THE BOTTOM SCREW HOLDING THE FUEL RAIL LEAKS OIL. THEY SEALED THE OIL IN WITH SILICON AND I JUST CHANGED AIR COMPRESSOR FOR OIL LEAK. I HAVE JUST BOUGHT THE TRUCK 6 MONTHS AGO. THE TRUCK MAY HAVE HAD AN ACCIDENT BEFORE. WHEN I STEP HARD ON THE BRAKE PEDAL, I HEAR A LOUD METAL KNOCKING NOISE FROM THE FRONT DRIVER SIDE BRAKE CHAMBER. AND THAT AFFECT THE STEERING.

I STARTED TRAVELING DOWN THE ROAD AND THE SPEEDOMETER DROPPED TO 5 MPH, AND STAYED THERE FOR ABOUT 100 MILES WHILE I WAS ON THE WAY TO TAKE IT TO A SHOP. BEFORE I MADE IT TO THE SHOP IT STARTED WORKING PROPERLY AGAIN. THE COMPANY IM LEASED ON TO INFORMED ME THEY ARE HAVING THIS SAME ISSUE WITH THEIR CASCADIAS ALSO. THE SPEEDOMETER WILL JUST STOP WORKING FOR A LITTLE BIT AND THEN JUST START BACK AGAIN, IT WILL ALSO HAVE A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COME ON AFTER ABOUT 40 MILES.
