We also serve nearby cities of Fairhaven, New Bedford, Westport, and Fall River. Our certified technicians are factory trained and go through regular training for auto services. One of the engine services on offer at our facility is diesel engine oil change. Diesel engines can deliver excellent longevity, but they require regular maintenance to keep them running in top condition.
The need to replace the engine oil is one of the most basic maintenance requirements of the vehicle. If the engine oil becomes ineffective, the engine parts get damaged and cannot perform up to optimum levels. Although diesel engines are built to last, ineffective engine oil can lead to premature deterioration. Along with new engine oil, there might be a requirement for a new engine air filter and engine oil filter as they can get clogged with dust and debris over time.
The engine oil required for diesel engines might be different from the engine oil required for gasoline engines. Using the wrong type of engine oil can result in significant damage to the engine. Some engine oil used for diesel engines has a high concentration of additives. These additives can include anti-wear load, anti-oxidants, friction modifiers, and more. Some brands also have additives designed to improve the viscosity index of the fluid. If all this is sounding confusing to you, don’t worry. Allow our technicians to guide you on getting the right type of engine oil for your vehicle. We only carry the most reliable and high-quality engine oil at our facility.
Several factors will contribute to the service interval for diesel engine oil change. One of the most important factors is the recommendation of the vehicle manufacturer. This recommendation should be available in the owner’s manual of your vehicle. However, if you drive in unusual conditions such as extreme weather, or the vehicle is used for unusual activity such as heavy towing, it can put excessive stress on the engine. Our expert technicians at Colonial Honda of Dartmouth can inspect your vehicle to determine the most suitable oil change service interval for your vehicle.
