Issue

Symptom:

  • Fuel in coolant system
  • Coolant in fuel system
  • Fault Code 418 (water-in-fuel indicator)
  • Pressurized cooling system

Root Cause:

  • Shrinkage of injector sleeve seal material can create a leak path between cylinder head cooling jacket and injector bore.

 

Verification

Note : Injector sleeve seal material degradation is only one possible cause of symptoms discussed in this document. Published troubleshooting procedures must be followed to determine root cause.

  • Inspection for fuel or coolant leakage past injector sleeve seal is only to be performed when other possible sources of contamination, such as fuel heaters, have been ruled out.
  • Injector sleeve seal leaks can be verified in-chassis by pressure testing cooling system with injectors removed and monitoring upper edge of injector sleeves for bubbles or coolant leaking into injector bore. See corresponding Service Manual.

Reference Procedure 002-014 in Section 2.

  • If cylinder head has been removed, injector sleeve seal leaks can be verified by leak testing coolant passage using service tool, Part Number 3164231. See corresponding Service Manual. Reference Procedure 002-004 in Section 2.

Resolution

  • Cylinder head assemblies are not to be replaced if injector sleeve is found leaking.
  • If leaking injector sleeve is root cause of coolant or fuel cross-contamination, install retaining ring, Part Number 4312298 in all six injector sleeves. See Service Instructions and Service Parts Availability Sections below.
  • Even if only one injector sleeve is found leaking, retaining rings must be installed in all six injector sleeves.
  • Installation of a retaining ring is a onetime repair only. If an injector sleeve is found to be leaking again and a retaining ring was previously installed, Service Manual Procedure 002-014 in Section 2 will direct further investigation of cylinder head to better understand severity of fuel or coolant leak or causes besides sleeve seal material being compromised.
  • Inspect the fuel tank and filter for contamination.

 

Service Instructions

  • See video link below for instructions on installation of retaining rings.
