Detroit, MI (PRWEB) October 24, 2004
Detroit Diesel Corporation (DDC) announces the release of the MBE 900 reliabiltÂ® engine. With more than 350,000 MBE 900 engines in service today, DDC remanufacturing engineers developed the reliabiltÂ® remanufactured MBE 900 engine to provide a dependable, reduced cost, fast exchange engine service option that maximizes customer vehicle up-time.
The DDC reliabiltÂ® process begins with complete disassembly of the engine core. Each component part is cleaned, inspected, tested, qualified and restored to blueprint specification. In addition; the engine is updated to include the latest engineering improvements. Components are remanufactured with the use of advanced measurement and machining techniques or replaced with new, genuine Mercedes Benz engine parts. All reliabiltÂ® engines include new pistons, oil cooler cores, gaskets, filters, hoses, wiring harnesses, bearings, seals, vibration dampers, fittings and clamps.
To validate performance and insure customer satisfaction, every reliabiltÂ® engine is dynamometer tested to ensure it satisfies the original factory test specifications. Maintaining the engineÂs original compression ratio provides optimized fuel economy, reduced emissions, good cold weather starting and restored power. All reliabiltÂ® engines are covered by a 1-year/100,000 mile warranty, worldwide. Extended service coverage, Power Protection Plans (P3), are also available.
Detroit Diesel Remanufacturing Centers are wholly owned by Detroit Diesel Corporation with dedicated component development engineers, manufacturing engineers and quality managers. The remanufacturing and assembly processes are ISO 9002 certified.
The MBE 900 reliabiltÂ®engines are available from the Detroit Diesel Distributor Network; Freightliner, Sterling and Western Star Truck Dealers and Thomas Built Bus Dealers.
