Engine Maintenance


Bent over fins on your intercooler?

Intercooler fin repairBent fins act as a bottleneck, restricting airflow through the intercooler. This obstruction can result in decreased engine power, elevated exhaust temperatures, and increased emissions in the form of black smoke

Neglecting this issue will yield the same undesirable consequences – compromised engine performance and heightened emissions persist.

Causes?  Typically, these bent fins are a result of mechanical interference. Whether it’s inadvertently storing tools atop the intercooler during maintenance or over enthusiastic pressure washing, these actions can flatten the fins.

When to check? Make it a habit to visually inspect the fins whenever the cover is removed.
