Frequently Asked Questions
What is Diesel I.O Intelligent Optimization?
What problems does Diesel I.O solve for heavy-duty trucks?
A truck that has been optimized by our Diesel I.O, solution, will be more efficient and reliable. Trucks will have fewer breakdowns, de-rates, check engine lights, better fuel mileage and their Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) and aftertreatment components will not fail prematurely. Owners and fleet maintenance personnel will notice a 10 – 15% increase in fuel economy and up to a 55% reduction in annual maintenance on average in annual maintenance costs.
What can our service team expect from Diesel I.O.?
How does Intelligent Optimization work?
- Duty cycle and use
- Does the truck have the correct ECM programming for its specific duty cycle
- General aftertreatment health
- DPF health
- Regeneration effectiveness
- Any red flags regarding aftertreatment health or general maintenance procedures
Once we’ve reviewed the information we’ve gathered and made sure your team understands how we can resolve your aftertreatment problem and improve your efficiencies, we’re on to the next step in the process: blueprinting. During the blueprinting phase, we design blueprints for your fleet and your duty cycles so that you and your team can manage your trucks day to day. Last we provide comprehensive training that will empower your fleet team to better maintain your trucks on their own which will drastically reduce aftertreatment related repairs and maintenance costs.
Doesn’t my dealer already program our ECMs?
I was told that messing with my ECM will void my warranty. Is this true?
Any ECM programming recommendations we make are based 100% on manufacturer recommendations and only applies to your “owner accessible” features and parameters. Unlike other “super tuner” programming companies out there, we will not make any recommendations or changes to any features or parameters that are locked out by the manufacturer, or that would be considered “tampering” by the EPA.
How long will it take for us to see improvement in our trucks after the ECM is programmed properly?
Over time, depending on the pre-existing condition of the aftertreatment system, and assuming that the duty cycle is consistent, you will begin to notice a reduction in repairs and check engine lights, and an improvement in fuel economy well within the first couple of months.
Is your team certified to work on our trucks?
Do the manufacturers support your solution?
Is Diesel I.O basically just a calibration (CAL) update?
If we have an in-house fleet maintenance team, can they be trained to support Diesel I.O.?
What support do you provide after the initial service?
I want to try Diesel I.O. on my trucks. How do I get started?
- Year(s) and make of trucks
- Specific aftertreatrment problems your trucks are experiencing
- ECM images for 3-6 trucks (For a No Cost ECM Audit by our manufacture certified experts)
