So you have sprung for a diesel engine vehicle? If you are like many other people who make that choice, it is probably because of the improved fuel economy it offers. Also, a diesel engine is less complicated than a gasoline-powered engine in many ways, with greater reliability and longer working life.

Although diesel engines do not require ignition tune-ups (to replace spark plugs or distributors) and tend to run longer without major diesel engine repair than their gasoline-powered counterparts, it is still vital for drivers to keep up with regular diesel engine service. However, this service is mostly in the form of frequent oil and filter changes, which are relatively inexpensive. The fuel system, however, needs a little extra attention to prevent dirt and water in the fuel from damaging it.

So what does diesel engine service include:

  • Changing the oil and filter – Many types of diesel use a different grade of engine oil than gas engines. Your service manual will list the exact type of oil required.
  • Replacing the air filter.
  • Refilling the urea injection system – This system reduces nitrogen oxide emissions.
  • Bleeding the fuel system – This gets rid of trapped air after the installation of a new fuel filter, or if you should happen to run out of fuel.
  • Draining the water-separator collection bins – This must be done manually.

Generally, the recommended diesel engine service interval is every 3,000 miles or six months, whichever comes first. However, this can differ significantly depending on the make and model of your vehicle, as well as how many miles you drive on a regular basis. Maintaining your diesel vehicle according to the schedule in your service manual should give you many miles and years of reliable transportation (easily over the 100,000-mile mark). Failure to the service schedule can result in costly diesel engine repair, more than likely to the fuel injection system.
