Have You Had Maintenance Issues Because of Emissions-related Reduction and Control Devices?

Have You Had Maintenance Issues Because of Emissions-related Reduction and Control Devices? Tell Us About It!

ABA, IMG, UMA and the Bus Maintenance & Repair Council (BusMARC) are soliciting your input on your experiences with maintenance issues due to emissions-related reduction and control devices.

We would like to study the continued need for progressive derate inducements associated with low-volume or empty Diesel Emission Fluid (DEF) tanks, the use of poor-quality DEF product, and/or a fault in the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system. Frequently a derate situation results in diminished engine performance, a loss of torque or a forced regeneration.

Please complete the following survey by June 30. Your participation is greatly appreciated.

Click here for the survey. (Note: if you are a member of more than one of these associations, please fill out the survey only once.)

All responses will be kept strictly confidential and there will be no reference to specific company names. Thank you in advance for your input on this important safety and environmental regulation for our industry.

We would also invite you to join us for a webinar session on July 1 at 11 a.m. ET to discuss this and other common over-the road breakdowns, and commons solutions that OEMs and operators have found.
