Why does excessive idling cause damage? How? I see these stickers every where but have never heard of an actual case of it happening. Anybody know how this works?
Newer diesel engines can not complete a regen at idle if the dpf stops up it will cause problems
I Have heard that was a design flaw with the Yamahas that has been fixed something about some kind of coating in the exhuast or something seems like I remember it was a big problem on the 225 to 250s and if was not caught soon enough it wound eat into the power headView attachment 1079108

so it was explained to me that the super heated exhaust gases were responsible for the deterioration of the dry exhaust chambers. This caused the dry chambers to mix with the wet cooling passages and the tell tail sign that something was wrong was water being discharged from the upper dry exhaust port on my motor while at idle. It was taken care of under warranty.
it can have a Diesel particulate filter and not have to run Diesel Exhaust fluid chances are if its been made in the last 10 years or so it at least has a DPF and that has to go through a regeneration cycle that if everything is working right you should never noticeThis engine doesn’t have DeF. I should’ve said I see them on heavy equipment.
that explains it very well good read"To some extent, the answers to those questions might depend on the age of the engine.
“In older trucks and machines, excessive idling can kill cylinder packs by scarring rings and cylinder walls, resulting in loss of compression into the crankcase and possible fuel dilution of engine oil,” says Sunrock’s Dennis.
For newer engines, physical damage caused by excessive idling—at least to the engine’s major internal working components—seems to be less of a risk. Komatsu’s McGinnis says that, generally speaking, electronic control systems on today’s machines are designed to mitigate the potential downside of extended idling. He does, however, cite another idling-related issue that can have an effect on newer engines."
As the population of machines equipped with factory-installed telematics systems has increased in recent years, equipment manufacturers have encouraged customers to use this powerful technology, often suggesting that tracking machine idling time might be a way to ease into using the data.
