A charge air cooler takes hot air from the turbo and cools it. This lowered intake air temperature increases the engine horsepower and improves efficiency. Quite simply, less fuel for more power. A leak-free charge air cooler will maximize horsepower and fuel savings, but it can also prolong the life of your engine. Your semi-trucks cooling system is crucial in helping the truck's engine work as efficiently and smoothly as possible.
What are the consequences of a defective charge air cooler?
- The engine will lose power and waste fuel.
- Engine oil may contain elevated levels of soot.
- Damage to the engine may occur including premature piston, ring, and valve failures.
- The turbocharger and/or exhaust manifold may fail.
- An increase in coolant temperatures may lead to damage to other parts of the engine and cooling system.
