Diesel Engine Service Timeline

Depending on the model and age of your vehicle, your diesel engine should be serviced at least once a year or roughly every 5,000 miles. Check your Owner’s Manual for a specific timeline or just stop by and let our technicians take a look. Some of the tasks they may recommend include changing the lubricating oil, changing the air and fuel filter, bleeding the fuel system, and draining the water separators. Many pickup trucks, such as the Ford F-150 and Super Duty models come available with a diesel engine for their high torque output and durability. However, that durability does not meant that you can neglect routine maintenance – the fuel system needs to be closely monitored to avoid the chance of major damage.

Specialized Appointments

Our Service Department is ready to treat your vehicle’s diesel engine with the care that it deserves. Coolant is a crucial element to ensure that towing and hauling loads doesn’t overheat the engine. We’ll make sure that there is the proper level of coolant and that is fresh and free from harmful acid that can develop over time. They’ll also take a close look for any signs of dirt or debris in the fuel, oil, and check the condition of the appropriate filters. If you know that your vehicle is experiencing issues or your check engine light is on, our mechanics will use their knowledge and our diagnostic tools to assess the cause right away.

If you’re still looking for answers, don’t hesitate to fill out our online Ask a Tech form. It will be sent right to our team who will get back you as soon as possible with their recommendation. From our website you can also access our convenient Schedule Service form, choosing your preferred timeslot and appointment type.

Small town dealership with none of the hype, flash, and BS you get around Chicago. If you want to be treated right, and get a great price, take a drive down to Dwight, IL. It is well worth it. See Brenda, she is wonderful.

I have been a customer of DeLong Ford for many years. I have always been treated fairly and courteously. The staff has always been most helpful. I have always been pleased with the Ford products. I have never been "encouraged" to buy. They know that I will return when I am ready.
