The ISX diesel engine by Cummins is one of the most popular engines on the road today. The first ISX was produced in 1998, as a response to the EPA's tighter emissions restrictions. It soon replaced the N14, the other workhorse engine produced by Cummins.
Are you hearing a sudden engine knock? Is your engine running rough? These can be signs that your camshaft is failing.
Cummins has a history of producing strong, long-lasting diesel engines, including some of the most popular ones for on-highway applications. Two of their engines in particular, the N14 and the ISX, continue to remain popular diesel choices.
ISD series engines have exceptional reliability leading in the industry. Along with increasingly strict emission laws and regulations, ISD series have become first power choice of domestic mainstream bus manufacturers with their reliable and dependable product platform and sustainable technological development advantages.
Cummins Inc. has landed a $47.4 million contract from the National Advanced Mobility Consortium to develop a revolutionary new type of diesel engine for the U.S. Army that promises to be lighter and more efficient than those currently in use.
Cummins’ new X12 engine is slated to hit the street sometime early last year, probably shortly after its formal launch in February or March. The engine was introduced in August 2016, and I had a short drive with it then around the 7-mile loop track at the Transportation Research Center in East Liberty, Ohio. It wasn’t much of an opportunity to get to know the engine, but it whet my appetite. Cummins invited me to drive the new X12 this past November on a longer real-world route, starting from the plant in Jamestown, New York, where the X12 is to be built.
Series B is a series of four-cycle diesel engines with four or six cylinders of “one litter per cylinder” capacity, which Cummins has developed for use in automotive, agriculture, power generation and marine applications. They developed the 4BT engine series as a way to promote the heavy duty work of these engines.
The engine of the Cummins B-Series is a straight six-cylinder diesel engine from Cummins Engine, built since 1984. Since then, the engine has been constantly evolving; the capacity has been increased from 5.9 to 6.7 litters. Designed as an industrial engine for use in commercial vehicles, the B-Series gained notoriety through its use in Ram pickup trucks from 1989 onwards. The B Series was manufactured by Consolidated Diesel Company of North Carolina. With an average mileage of 482,803 km up to the first engine overhaul, the B-Series in Ram Trucks is considered durable. In the following section, the first engine of the B-series, type 6BT, will be discussed.
One of the heaviest duty engines that have seen the most use is the Cummins 6CT engine from the C-series that the company manufactures. when you take a look at motor homes, RVs, fire trucks, large pickup trucks, and other big vehicles, then what you are seeing under the hood is probably a Cummins 6CT engine. This heavy duty engine definitely has seen a lot of use due to its reliability and the horsepower that it provides. And both of the qualities of the C-series of an engine have made the 6CT a very popular one among the people who love customizing car engines and parts.
