If you have ever experienced or witnessed a diesel runaway, you know how devastating it can be. Let’s just say, there can be a lot of shrapnel flying around in short order. If you want to be sure and alleviate that concern, the folks at BD Diesel want to help.
Insurance is a good thing to have, and you need to consider the BD Diesel Electronic Positive Air Shutdown (E-PAS). Consider this good insurance to combat the result of a runaway. A runaway diesel occurs when external hydrocarbons are drawn into the engine and cause overspeeding and catastrophic engine failure. When this happens, life, limb, and your vehicle are put in jeopardy.
BD Diesel Performance’s E-PAS works by cutting the intake air supply to the cylinders and safely shutting down the engine. The E-PAS controls the electronic throttle body in the intake manifold found on most late-model diesel engines by closing it to shut off the air supply in emergency situations. The E-PAS can be easily installed in less than 1-1/2 hours and utilizes factory plug-in connectors and premade wiring harnesses. It automatically resets itself after shutdown and if you are returning a leased truck, it can be easily removed before you return it.
The E-Pas comes with a 24-month/24,000-mile warranty on parts and if you live in California, this product does not require an E.O number, and it is safe for sale and use in all 50 states.
This kit (PN: 1036762) is designed for 3.0-liter GM diesel vehicles used in environments with flammable vapors that cause diesel runaway such as oil fields etc. This kit prevents damage to the vehicle, occupants, and surroundings during these unforeseen circumstances.
The diesel runaway kit uses a plug-and-play module that does not require any engine modification. When removed, the vehicle is returned to OEM specs. No special tools are required for installation. Can be activated automatically or manually to avoid engine runaway
