Whether gasoline or diesel-powered vehicles, all vehicles need to have routine maintenance performed on them, such as oil changes. Diesel engines in your car, truck, or SUV are beneficial because they can use specialty-formulated oils that will last longer between oil changes.
An oil change in Waukee in a diesel is the same procedure as changing the oil in a gasoline vehicle. Diesel engine oil is different from regular or conventional oil, though. Diesel oil is heavier and thicker to coat the spaces between the rod and crankshaft bearings on a diesel engine. In a diesel engine, there is a lot more space to fill with oil in these areas. Thin-oil would just drain out and a thicker oil than diesel would make the engine run too hot. Diesel oil also has more detergents and additives to help with a diesel engine’s higher soot level. Diesel oil has specialty additives to lower the thickness and better start while raising the thickness at high temperatures. This allows you to go longer between oil changes in a diesel vehicle.
You should get your oil change in a diesel vehicle about every 7,500 to 10,000 miles or once a year under usual driving conditions. Gasoline vehicles usually recommend changing oil every 3,000 miles or 3 months. Diesel oil is composed so that it breaks down much slower than gasoline oil so you only need an oil change when the oil breaks down and is no longer coating the internal parts of your engine, as it should.
If you go past the recommended schedule by several miles or a few weeks, it shouldn’t actually hurt your diesel vehicle. However, it is something that does need to be done as soon as you can get to it. Waiting too long for your diesel engine oil change means that your oil isn’t doing its job of lubrication on internal engine parts. This can cause parts to wear out prematurely from friction. Internal parts without lubrication also get very hot and it can cause your engine to overheat, which can lead to an engine failure or an engine fire in some cases.
