Charge air hose
Suitable for: Scania
Tips & tricks
The charge air hoses must not be interchanged due to different material compositions in order to avoid premature failure. If there is excessive oil or foreign matter such as metal chips in the charge air hoses, it must be checked whether there is a defect in the turbocharger and whether the charge air cooler must also be replaced.
When installing the charge air hoses, care must be taken to ensure that the charge air hoses and the clamp are installed in a perfect, tension-free position, as otherwise the air compressed by the turbocharger can escape. This can lead to power losses or even to turbocharger engine damage. If there is a leak, the engine indicator lamp may light up and the engine power may be reduced.
