If you drive a vehicle that uses diesel fuel rather than gasoline, you won’t get a conventional oil change. Instead, you will need to get a diesel engine oil change. If you recently purchased your diesel-powered vehicle and it is your first time having an oil change, you should know what to expect.
A diesel engine oil change is essential in maintaining your diesel vehicle. Just like a conventional oil change, you need to have a routine diesel oil change performed to keep your engine running smoothly.
When your diesel engine is running, the temperature inside can get very hot. The diesel oil is responsible for keeping the temperature down, preventing the engine from overheating. The oil will also keep all of the moving parts of the engine lubricated, which keeps everything moving the way that it should. Over time, dirt, debris, metal, and other particles can build up in the oil. This can cause the oil to become gritty, which makes it difficult to keep the parts lubricated. Also, as these particles build up in the oil, it causes the oil to degrade. Degraded oil cannot keep the engine as cool as it should, causing it to overheat.
If you drive a diesel-powered car or truck and use synthetic diesel engine oil, we recommend you have your oil changed at least once every year or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first. If you go a bit over, it doesn’t mean that your engine will blow, however, you shouldn’t make it a habit. Be sure to check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for precise oil change intervals for your specific model, and have your oil changed at those intervals.
Diesel oil and regular oil are completely different, which is why you should never use diesel oil in a car with a gasoline engine and vice versa. The main difference between the two is that diesel oil has a higher anti-wear load than gasoline oil. If you use gas engine oil in a diesel engine, you can cause wear in the valve train and other parts, which can cause permanent damage to the engine.
