HEAVY-DUTY TRUCK OIL & FLUID IN LITCHFIELD, OH & EVANS CITY, PA
COMPONENTS THAT REQUIRE OIL OR FLUID
TRANSMISSION AND TRANSFER CASE
Both your transmission and transfer case are responsible for optimizing your engine’s power. Since they both house complex gear systems, they both need to be lubricated at all times. The average service interval for transmission and transfer case fluid is anywhere from 30 to 60 thousand miles. Heavy-duty trucks that haul extremely heavy cargo are likely on the lower end of that service interval as their engines are under significantly more stress, whereas trucks that don’t haul much weight are on the higher end.
Your diesel engine needs oil for lubrication purposes and coolant for heat dispersal purposes. The average service interval for diesel engine oil is approximately 20 thousand miles, although that may change depending on what the truck is used for. As for coolant, the average service interval is around 45 thousand miles.
DIFFERENTIAL AND AXLE HOUSING
Within every axle housing, you’ll find a differential and a set of axle shafts. Both components need to be lubricated at all times. Fortunately, keeping up to date with this particular set of fluids is easy for both components share the same fluid. The negative side is this means there are more areas for this fluid to leak from. If you notice gear oil leaking from your axle seals or your differential plate, we highly recommend coming in for service right away.
