Hey Guys,

Do any of you have any older T444E buses that have a hard time getting up to speed? We have two 2002 Internationals here for spares, and both of them hardly have enough power to pull themselves along the road. When you get up to highway speeds you are alright, but it's just that initial pulling away from a stop power. Even with the pedal mashed to the floor it takes a long time to build speed.

One bus has a new turbo, and the other has a turbo from a few years back. Wastegates sticking??

I'm just curious if anyone else out there has suffered this?

Yes, it almost always ends up being bad injectors

Thanks for the advice. Would it be too late for an injector cleaner treatment?

That's awesome! I hope you don't mind that I'm using it as my signature do you?

No, I think its great. Pictures are made to be viewed and enjoyed as far as I'm concerned. I sent most of my old 35mm to Bsaund to post on his flikr.
