New Charge Air Coolers from Alliance Truck Parts Now Available
Portland, Ore. – Alliance Truck Parts, a leading aftermarket parts provider for the commercial transportation industry, now offers a charge air cooler product line for most makes and models of class 6-8 commercial trucks and buses. The new line provides a quality solution to charge air cooler issues that can severely affect a vehicle’s performance.
Charge air coolers from Alliance Truck Parts are all new construction, not remanufactured or refurbished, and feature bar and plate construction instead of fin and tube for greater durability and more efficient heat transfer.
“Fuel efficiency and overall performance are two areas where quality charge air coolers can make a significant impact,” said Daniel Haggerty, director of parts marketing for Daimler Trucks North America LLC. “A properly functioning charge air cooler is vital to maintaining fuel economy, horsepower and emissions, but many operators are not checking them regularly for leaks.”
Symptoms of a non-performing charge air cooler include:
Loss of engine power
Increased fuel consumption
Elevated soot levels in engine oil
Premature piston, ring and valve failure
Elevated coolant temperatures
Exhaust manifold failure
“To illustrate the importance of the charge air cooler to engine efficiency, a leaking charge air cooler steals horsepower and can lower fuel economy by more than a half-mile per gallon,” added Haggerty. “At today’s diesel prices of well above $3.50 a gallon that could result in a loss of more than $6,760 a year for each truck averaging 500 miles a day. Doing a periodic charge air cooler check should be as automatic as checking the oil.”
Alliance Truck Parts charge air coolers are available now for Dodge, Ford, Freightliner, International, Kenworth, Mack, Peterbilt, Sterling, Volvo, Western Star and other class 6-8 trucks and buses. Unlike remanufactured models, Alliance Truck Parts charge air coolers carry a 1-year unlimited mileage warranty, and are all tested to OEM specifications for fit and optimum performance.
The simple pressure test to ensure proper charge air cooler performance can be done in approximately 20 minutes, and is available at more than 800 Daimler Trucks North America locations nationwide.
