Learn from the Experts at AMBAC about how to take care of your fuel injection systems, and what services and experience AMBAC has to offer.
Episode 46: A phrase that people often use is, “This is a diesel engine; the problem should be easy to diagnose.” The most accurate part of that statement is that it is a diesel engine.
The diesel engine has been transformed by technology over the last 30-years and for a history of the diesel engine listen to episode 24 where I interviewed Craig Barnes who worked at Cummins for over 30-years about the evolution of powering commercial vehicles.
The good thing about electronic diesels is that the technician can link up with a scan tool to analyze data in order to try to pinpoint problems. But some problems may be tougher to diagnose. Take for example an injector issue.
Like anything else, injectors can get tired and become weak over time.
To help us with that I would like to introduce Robert Isherwood, CEO of AMBAC Intl.
Formerly, American Bosch, AMBAC has been manufacturing and supplying Diesel Fuel Injection Systems for heavy-duty commercial and military applications since 1908.
Question 1: What’s the most common reason people have a diesel fuel injection system failure?
Improper maintenance is the leading cause.

The long-term and short-term future of the trucking industry.
Question 3: Your customers include OEM’s and large distributors, but you also have a reman program, tell us more about that program.
