We Know How To Repair A DEF-Contaminated Fuel System

At The Truck Shop, Inc., we understand the frustration and potential damage that can result from a contaminated Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) system. DEF contamination can wreak havoc on your vehicle’s engine, causing performance issues and potentially leading to costly repairs. That’s why we’re here to share our expertise and offer solutions to effectively repair a DEF-contaminated fuel system.

Understanding DEF Contamination: DEF contamination occurs when foreign substances, such as diesel fuel, water, or other fluids, infiltrate the DEF system. This can happen through various means, including improper handling, storage, or refilling of DEF tanks. Contaminated DEF can compromise the efficiency of your vehicle’s selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system, which is responsible for reducing harmful emissions.

Signs of DEF Contamination: Detecting DEF contamination early is crucial to preventing further damage to your vehicle. Some common signs of DEF contamination include:

  1. Reduced engine performance
  2. Increased exhaust emissions
  3. Illuminated warning lights on the dashboard
  4. Unusual odors emanating from the exhaust

Repairing a DEF-Contaminated Fuel System: When faced with a DEF contamination issue, prompt action is essential. At The Truck Shop, Inc., our team of skilled technicians employs advanced diagnostic tools and techniques to identify and rectify DEF contamination effectively. Here’s how we approach the repair process:

  1. Comprehensive Inspection: We start by conducting a thorough inspection of the entire DEF system, including tanks, lines, and injectors, to pinpoint the source and extent of contamination.
  2. System Flushing: Depending on the severity of contamination, we perform a meticulous flushing procedure to purge the system of any foreign substances. This involves draining and cleaning the DEF tanks and replacing filters as needed.
  3. Component Replacement: In some cases, contaminated components such as injectors or sensors may need to be replaced to restore optimal functionality. Our team utilizes genuine OEM parts to ensure quality and reliability.
  4. Calibration and Testing: Once the repair work is complete, we recalibrate the DEF system and conduct comprehensive testing to verify proper operation and compliance with emissions standards.

Preventive Maintenance Tips: To minimize the risk of DEF contamination in the future, we recommend the following preventive maintenance tips:

  • Use high-quality, pure DEF from reputable suppliers.
  • Ensure proper storage and handling of DEF to prevent exposure to contaminants.
  • Regularly inspect DEF tanks and associated components for signs of damage or leaks.
  • Follow manufacturer guidelines for DEF system maintenance and refilling procedures.
