As a result of diesel engine failures being experienced in the field with "approved" engine oils, an extensive truck field test has been run with over 40 different oil formulations ranging in quality from CA to CD/SE/1% ash in four major types of diesel engines. Results show that fire-ring sticking is the major problem with a truck piston 2-cycle engine and this appears to be related to the additive composition rather than the oil classification level. /GMRL/
