  1. Cat 2316. Lost an injector tip at highway speed. The tip got stuck between a valve and the head. The valve retainer broke, the valve fell into they cyl. and it crushed the piston, Metal parts all thru the engine. Engine a total loss. 113,000 miles on the coach. 1,000 miles from home. My extended warranty (good sam) only paid for damaged parts. No tax, no shipping, no "required replacement parts". My cost out of pocket for a cat certified re-manufactured long block installed was $13,500. The good sam service contract paid $25,500. The repair shop recommends a full injector replacement and a valve adjustment every 100,000 miles on the CAT engines.
