When it comes to preventative maintenance for a diesel truck, one of the most overlooked items is the coolant system. The condition of coolant affects engine longevity and is, in fact, just as important as an oil change.
Using proper engine coolant is critical for diesel engine performance. Our Omaha diesel performance technicians can help prevent long-term engine issues by recommending the appropriate coolant and following a regular routine maintenance schedule. Proper coolant ensures proper flow and protects internal components from corrosion.
Diesel engines can suffer from corrosion/cavitation when coolant isn’t maintained properly. Cavitation has been an issue in diesel engines for years, but thanks to Supplemental Coolant Additives (SCAs) it creates a protective barrier to protect the cylinder liner. The levels in the cooling system need to be monitored on a regular basis for optimal diesel performance.
Each diesel engine is different, and based on manufacturer build and maintenance recommendations require different maintenance strategies. Based on a variety of variables – like dry liners, coolant system filters, antifreeze – our Omaha diesel performance can assess your vehicle’s coolant for the longevity of your diesel engine and the performance of your diesel truck.
