Just like humans need blood to survive, diesel vehicles require engine oil. Regular diesel engine maintenance will keep your truck or heavy vehicle running smoothly. Engine oil problems do happen, make sure to check your oil regularly to avoid a bigger issue with your engine down the track.
What is the purpose of engine oil?
It has many uses; it prevents metal surfaces rubbing together and damaging the engine, captures toxic bi-products of combustion, and also minimises oxidisation at high temperatures by limiting the exposure to oxygen. A few decades ago, there was not a lot of value held in the type of engine oil used in a diesel vehicle. Now, due to the variations in engine size and horse power, engine oil selection is somewhat of a speciality. Choosing the right product for the right engine can save you money in the long run. Get the right advice from your local Perth diesel mechanic to keep your engine running smoothly.
