kenworth trucks

Kenworth is an American company manufacturing medium and heavy-duty trucks, Class 8. The company is a part of Paccar. Kenworth models are very comfortable. The seat goes back nice and far, and there is a lot of leg room. Trucks are very quiet inside and the visibility is outstanding for a conventional style truck. Kenworth trucks are the only long nose vehicles out there that can look good with a one piece windshield. Kenworths, particularly the W900's, sit up higher than other trucks.

Kenworth Trucks Problems
  • T800 can experience issues with the Lambda MX sensor and the mounting hardware, part of the truck‚Äôs emissions system. The fuel doser may need replacement.
  • The company recalled almost 1,500 trucks supplied with the Paccar MX-13 engines and Delco-Remy 40SI alternators for having alternator charge cables that could chafe against a formed metal freon discharge line. This may lead to an electrical short resulting in a fire.
  • The 2009 Kenworth with a Cummins may have problems with the turbo, the DPF filter, the air compressor, the EGR Cooler.
  • 2010 Kenworth T2000 with a Cummins Motor, may experience coolant burning and getting low every day and smoke coming out of the oil filler cap from the coolant burning.
