Mitsubishi Fuso Offers New Engine Protection System Option for its Class 4 and 5 Commercial Trucks

May 23, 2006

LOGAN TOWNSHIP, NJ – A new engine protection system is available as a port-installed option on new 2006 Mitsubishi Fuso FE and FG model medium-duty commercial trucks. The engine protection device monitors oil pressure and coolant temperature; if oil pressure drops or coolant temperature rises to a dangerous level, an audible alarm sounds and a warning light illuminates, indicating the out-of-range parameter. If the out-of-range condition corrects itself within 30 seconds, the system automatically resets with no further action required. Should the out-of-range condition persist for more than 30 seconds, the system will shut down the engine to protect it from critical damage, and the warning light will continue to flash until the system has been reset. The 30-second time delay is intended to allow the driver to safely pull off to the side of the road before the system terminates engine operation. If the driver initially misses the warning or ignores it, and the engine shuts down before the operator has safely pulled off the road, the system can be reset by shifting the transmission into neutral and cycling the ignition key to Off and back to the Start position. Pricing and availability can be obtained from local Mitsubishi Fuso dealers or by visiting
