Re: How to destroy a diesel in one easy step...

Being that this is my field i can say with out a pause that the number #1 killer of Diesel engine is... Water...
Water in to an intake acts like ball bearings and does not compress everything around it will, rods get shorter, piston ring lands get smaller etc. Water from the fuel system is the most common the second is the air intake system.
