What service do you need?

Your diesel engine is very different from a gas engine starting with the way it gains power using compression in the combustion chamber to ignite the fuel versus a spark like a gas engine. The real key to keeping that diesel engine in top shape is filters and with regularly scheduled maintenance and fluids - specifically diesel engine oil, exhaust treatment fluid, power steering fluid, coolant, brake fluid, automatic transmission fluid, rear differential fluid. On 4×4’s, you also have transfer case fluid and front differential fluid. It is more than you need on a gas engine but the durability and power you get with diesel are worth it and the routine maintenance will save you thousands of dollars in repairs easily.

When do you need to schedule maintenance for your diesel engine and what is needed each time?  For your convenience, we've added the preferred maintenance listing:
