Nice! I suspect if anything was gonna go south it would have already It seems there are mostly good ones, with some bad ones thrown in. It sounds like you have one of the good ones.I wonder if it’s really the wrist pin or a failed piston that leaves the wrist pin only supported on one side.
I don’t understand why GM changed the injectors and pistons from the what was used in the world engine. As in what is used in Australia. They claim it needed to be updated for North America.
I haven’t been able to find piston or injector failures in Australia. One guy was on here saying he had a rod end failure that resulted in an engine replacement..
Not sure how you use yours but mine has had a hard life. I have 50,000 miles and I have towed thousands of miles heavy. Holding it wide open up long hills with over 6k travel trailer behind it.
I have had 8000 lbs construction dump trailer full of hard wood behind it.
I am 64 but still a bad kid at heat and love to get the tail out once in a while. Love that torque…..
I do oil changes, fuel filter ect at 50% but I do run it very hard. I keep telling myself to stop or I am going to end up with an aggressive driving ticket..
My truck has a pretty easy life. It does a lot of highway and longer trips. Towing "work" is 3 dirt bikes on a trailer and a bed full of beer and gear. What a great long distance traveling companion these diesels are. I drove mine from CO to ID with the dirt bikes and it was a pleasure, 80 MPH for hours on I-80 was effortless. I take the wife's plug in hybrid, aka "the golf cart" on short runs. My Canyon only gets used if I am going to go at least 20 miles, usually more like 90 or 100. I use it for my work as a property adjuster, all it carries on most days is a pair of ladders.
