PEORIA, IL – Engine manufacturer Caterpillar announced it can provide parts and service for the 2007 engines. “With more than 100, 2007-model Cat engines being tested on the road today, we’re ready to take care of our customers’ engines in 2007,” said John Mathewson, manager product support, Caterpillar On-Highway Engines. Several technical training programs are currently underway. More than 2,400 technicians at both Cat dealers and OEM truck dealers have received training with 2007 Cat engines with ACERT Technology. This training includes instruction on the various systems and technology employed by the 2007 engines: the diesel particulate filter (DPF), the Cat Regeneration System (CRS), and Caterpillar’s Clean Gas Induction (CGI). Online training programs also will be provided, and all Cat dealers will receive a dealer training kit including a training manual, a DVD, and various supporting materials to train branch stores and OEM truck dealers. Parts for 2007 engines will be readily available, according to Mathewson. Cat engine parts will be available through any Caterpillar authorized dealer. Cat Electronic Technician software updates also will be provided to diagnose the 2007 engines. Design Pro 2.0, Caterpillar’s specification software, also has been updated to include the 2007 engines.
