Conventional Diesel Oil Change Service
Diesel Engine Oil 101
Engine Oil is the vital liquid that flows throughout the engine lubricating its moving internal parts keeping them cool. Without engine oil, the engine’s internal components would quickly heat up due to intense friction and warp or seize up leaving you stranded with an immovable vehicle. The oil and filter used in diesel engines are different compared to traditional gasoline engines. The important similarity is that regular gasoline engines and diesel engines both require routine oil & filter changes at the recommended maintenance interval outlined in the owner’s manual. Just like gasoline engines, the diesel engine needs fresh oil & filter to stay lubricated and running at the optimum temperature.
Managing a diesel engine with its oil & filter requires a slightly different approach for peak performance. The first Pro Tip is to inspect the engine oil using the dipstick weekly. Most of our diesel-owning customers set aside one day a week to examine the oil quickly. If the engine oil is turning dark or is black, it needs change service. Also important to look for is tiny particulates contaminating the engine oil such as tiny metal shavings. If the engine oil appears contaminated or is gritty to touch, you need to schedule a Conventional Diesel Oil & Filter Change. It is important to remember that the owner’s manual gives the maximum maintenance interval between diesel engine oil & filter changes, but changing the diesel oil & filter at shorter intervals will only help the engine remain in tip-top shape for longer.
