A diesel vehicle could have up to five coolers in front of the engine. These include the air conditioning condenser, transmission cooler, power steering cooler, intercooler, and radiator.
Debris gets caught in the fins of the coolers as you drive. Because there are so many coolers in the front of the vehicle, we call them the “stack”. The best way to remove the debris and restore the cooling capability of the coolers is to remove them from the vehicle, clean them thoroughly, and re-install the coolers.
Branch Automotive, the diesel repair specialist shop in Littleton, CO performs a Stack Clean of the coolers to make your vehicle run cooler and smoother. Contact us at (303) 771-2224. Our location is 6030 E County Line Road, Littleton, CO 80126.
Even if you stay on the pavement while driving, debris gets sucked up into the fins of coolers. Enough debris eventually gets caught up in the fins—even in the coolers behind the very front cooler—so the cooling process is diminished.
The vehicle becomes less efficient over time. This means your diesel bill goes higher as time goes by.
Some issues caused by reduced cooling function include:

Many diesel trucks constantly run since it is more efficient to idle them for a few minutes than to shut down and restart them. However, the constant use means the engine and transmission take even more of a beating, especially for tow trucks, dump trucks, and other diesel trucks that haul or tow heavy loads.
Keeping the engine and transmission running cooler helps balance out the beatings these trucks take. Additionally, keeping up with maintenance also helps keep diesel vehicles running smoothly.
Our experienced diesel technicians at Branch Automotive in Littleton, CO will check for upcoming issues while your vehicle is in for service (including Stack Clean services). Hopefully, you will not be stuck out on the road because of a visible problem.
