Complaint Review: US DIESEL REMANUFACTURING
Us Diesel Remanufacturing Rebuild engine fraud Spencer Linden Michigan
*UPDATE Employee: U.S.D.R. Rebuttal
We sent our Cummins ISX engine to be rebuilt to US diesel Remanufacturing. We had it instaled in local shop where we maintain all our trucks. Right away there were codes, but i needed that truck up and running asap so i had the shop change fuel actuator and some sensor without calling US Diesel Reman because it was minor and i didn't have time to go trough warranty procces. Codes were cleared and i tought truck is ready to go.
5 mile run back to our yard went well, but as soon as i put the truck under a trailer it would go to 2000 rpm and wouldn't respomse to anything but to turn it off. Than towing, shop again, towing again all in circle..
Than i took the truck to Cummins in Hodgkins IL, where they found burned injectors, camshaft, rollers with damage, comming out to about $12.000 in repairs. All that on engine that had 200 miles since it was rebuild!! Clay from US Diesel Reman offered me to ship him injectors so he can oring them again and replace the ones that were gone, but he wouldn't cover the damage to camshaft and any other physical damage. I refused that because i paid $26.500 for a working engine and i had lost faith in that company. His other solution was for me to tow the truck to their shop in Michigan where they can fix it for a charge. The omly solution i would accept was fixing it in Cummins - they refused.
I was desperately considering towing my truck to their shop, but than i did some research, which i should have done before i sent them my engine or wired any money.
This comany is owned by Spencer family. They have owned other engine reman businesses but they are all closed. Others are: Mid America Diesel, National Diesel engines, Superior Diesel Engines, Midwest Engines. Names associated with theese comapnies are James, Steven, Carl, Barbara. What they did was wire fraud. Hard working truckers would wire their money but they would never get the engine.
Type in this in your web browser: 16-cr-20126. This is United States of America v. Carl S. Spencer Jr AKA Steven Spencer. I think this is enough to tell you who are you dealing with.
At the end, I did get the engine, I can still get some value out of it, I dont know if I should consider myself lucky. I'm suing this company, i know i'm not gonna get a dime because they will go bankrupt by than, but i hope This will save YOU money and time.
