Oil changes are an important part of routine maintenance. Make sure you get your oil changed on time, every time. Don’t give dirty oil a chance to cause sludge buildup or lubrication issues.
Fuel, air, and oil; all of these filters play an important role in keeping contamination from debris at bay, and all of them have the potential to either save you or cost you an engine.
Pay attention to the tubing and casings between the air filter and the turbo or intake. If a crack or a tear develops, debris can be ingested into the engine, which will destroy a turbo or the cylinder walls of your engine in short order. If you detect a leak, get it taken care of immediately.
Bad fuel components on a diesel engine are more than just an annoyance. If your truck takes a long time to warm up, smokes a lot on start-up, misfires, or has trouble starting, you may have a leaky injector. Issues like this can wash out a cylinder and result in an engine that needs to be replaced again. Pay attention to the way your engine runs, and keep it healthy.
Not to mention, your warranty might depend on it. Every seller is different, but some manufacturers won’t cover an issue that arises due to customer neglect.
