Components That Require Lubrication

Diesel Engines

Diesel engines need to be lubricated at all times. Most manufacturers recommend a service interval of 3 to 6 thousand miles, whereas transmissions and other large components need their fluids changed every 30 to 60 thousand miles. Failing to regularly replace the lubricant in your engine may lead to excessive overheating and severe damage. 

Transmission and Differentials

Your transmission is a series of gears designed to optimize your engine’s power. Your differentials, on the other hand, have a series of gears designed to distribute power to each wheel. Both of these components need their lubricant changed every 30 to 60 thousand miles. Failing to do so may lead to overheating problems and shredded gears.
