2004 mack vision

Question:
We bought a 2004 Mack vision feb 2004. We have had it in the shop every month for a minimume of 7 days. It hesitates and feels like it's about to stall. the injector codes come up every week saying there is a fault. They tell us it is a ghost code.There is big clouds of raw fuel comming out of the stacks. We have had fuel lines replace. Air to Air replaced twice. Altinator replaced twice. And many many more things. We can't even leave the city it has got so bad. We only have 31000 miles / 50000km on our car. It's 10 months old. That just goes to prove how often it has been in the shop. I just want to know if anyone else has been having these problems, Or if we just got the lemon of the bunch.

Answer:

Check and find out if there is an applicable "Lemon Law" in your state.

Answer:

The Mack Vision has been known to have more than it's fair share of mechanical/electrical problems. State lemon laws have been invoked in cakes involving the Mack Vision. Do a search of the forum for "lemon" to see what others have posted on this. I know Texas has a lemon law that covers commercial vehicles as well as POV's. Take Mr. Clark's advice and check into it.

Answer:


I was driving a car about 2 weeks ago for the company I drive for, however it was a 1999 Freightliner FLD with the 500 detroit in it. I was sleeping one night when it started to shake and sound like it was running about 2 cylinders less than it should be and was just bellowing white smoke reaking of diesel fuel.
I shut the car off, waited about 30 minutes and started it back up and it ran fine after that. I reported it to the shop right a way and they said they would look at it when i got it back to the shop, well it turns out there was a ceramic roller for the lifters? i think t was that broke thus in turn created a clog somewhere and caused the car to run the way it was running and when i shu the car off, it dislodged, Worse part was that it also damaged the cam shaft and it had to be replaced.
Just an idea to maybe have something like your lifters and cam checked to be safe, im not real mechanical when it comes to engines in big cars, but i just thought i would mention this and maybe someone else knows if this may be a possibility better than i do.
good luck.

Answer:

Mack should never have called it VISION. ILLUSION would be a much better model name.

Answer:

i'd have to agree w/ pipe. I don't like the new mack. Just give me a nice F model anyday.

Answer:

I know several people who have been experiencing problems with their Visions. In fact, one person I know who traded in his Mack CH model for one returned to the Mack dealer with the Vision (only had it for two weeks, and had tons of problems), and ended up getting his old CH back!
Thank God that Mack still builds the CH model! Great cars!
