Time for our annual service

Well, we’re on our way to Utah.  But before then, we’re making a stopover at the Cummins service center in Oklahoma City, OK where we will have our annual service.  This includes oil and filter change, as well as lubrication.  This isn’t the most fancy place to spend the night (no hookups), and it’s cold here (45 for a low tonight) but hey I’m sure the service people will bill us an appropriate amount tomorrow.

There also is a recall for an ECM (engine computer) update, as well as a test for blow by (leakage past the piston rings during compression).  Let’s just hope that the blow by test is OK as if it isn’t it will be a long, long service call… failure means a major overhaul, possibly even a complete engine removal  Sure, it is under warranty, but I don’t want to spend that time now.
