Diesel Engine Maintenance
Diesel engines have distinctive maintenance services that differ from a non-diesel engine. For someone who has not owned a diesel engine vehicle before, there are a few things to keep in mind when scheduling maintenance in the months ahead.
In a non-diesel engine, oil changes are required every 3,000 to 5,000 miles in most models, despite the manufacturer. This is because the oil and the fuel used in these engines burn through the oil much quicker than diesel does with its engine oil. Diesel engines require oil changes every 7,500 to 10,000 miles, stretching out this maintenance to once or event twice a year. This difference is substantial because having the oil changed in the same manner as a non-diesel engine is a waste of time and money.
