Our Comprehensive Truck & Trailer Oil & Fluid Services:
There are a lot of components in your heavy-duty vehicle that requires fluid for either lubrication or cooling purposes. The lubricants eradicate friction to ensure your components operate at adequate temperatures, and the fluid used for cooling absorbs radiant heat and disperses it through a radiator or cooler. Although many of these fluids last a long time, they do break down and need to be replaced at regular service intervals. Over time, coolant loses its ability to absorb heat and may start to boil away. Lubricants, on the other hand, may break down and lose their ability to lubricate metal, therefore allowing friction and heat to increase.
Heavy-Duty Components That Require Lubrication
There are a lot of moving components within a diesel engine, and each one needs to be properly lubricated at all times. Since your engine gets extremely hot on a regular basis, your engine oil needs to be changed a lot more often than other components. The average service interval time is about 6 thousand miles. If your engine is not properly lubricated, friction will increase, your coolant system will fail to compensate for this extra heat, and your engine will overheat.
Transmission and Differentials
Both your transmission and differentials require lubricant at all times. Your transmission is responsible for optimizing your engine’s power, whereas your differential is responsible for transferring power to both wheels connected to it. Each one has gears that need lubrication, for otherwise, the gear will wear down and malfunction. Common service intervals for both transmissions and differentials are approximately 60 thousand miles.
