Diesel Oil Change and Safety Inspection

Like a car or truck that uses gasoline, diesel engines need the correct lubrication maintain a good working condition and to avoid costly diesel engine repair. If you choose synthetic diesel oil change it can last a very long time under the right conditions. Chevron recently introduced a new diesel synthetic oil and Amsoil and Mobil 1 are two other synthetic diesel options, but do not skip changing your diesel oil. Consulting with Buds Diesel or your diesel mechanic is a good idea if you need to know the longevity of your diesel synthetic oil. Diesel oil changes have basic requirements just as gasoline engines do and every diesel truck owner should be familiar with these requirements to protect the longevity of their vehicles. Some of the requirements may include items like cost; brand choices and change frequency are important items to consider when you go in for a diesel oil change.


Oil changes for gasoline vehicles usually cost $29 to $49 subject to variables like where you go type of oil and size of motor. Franchised oil change stations may offer specials of the week, month or year but your personal mechanic can do a thorough job for only a fraction more. On the other hand a Diesel oil change is somewhere in the neighborhood of $98 to $129 again dependent on variables previously mentions and if you use synthetics, it will be more expensive.

Change Frequency

Gasoline powered vehicles require an oil change every 3000 miles or 3 months, whichever comes first. Of course, the Cinderella theory doesn’t apply here as your car won’t explode or turn into a pumpkin if you wait until 3,500 miles. It is basically the manufacturers or oil company recommendation. For diesel engines this recommended increases to 7500 miles.

Principally, a diesel oil change is very much like a regular oil change with the exception of the recommended frequency between changes. We use the highest quality components available in the marketplace to complete the maintenance and service for our regular and diesel oil change customers.
