Clean oil lubricates the engine components, reducing friction and heat buildup, which in turn ensures smoother operation and prevents excessive wear and tear. This improves the overall efficiency and lifespan of the engine.
Clean, fresh oil helps in dissipating heat by carrying it away from the engine components. As oil ages and breaks down, it becomes less effective at heat dissipation, potentially leading to overheating issues and engine damage. Routine oil changes ensure the oil’s cooling properties remain intact.
Oil plays a vital role in protecting the engine by forming a thin film between moving parts, preventing metal-to-metal contact. It also helps to minimize the accumulation of harmful deposits, such as dirt, sludge, and by-products.
A well-lubricated engine operates more efficiently, translating to improved fuel economy. By reducing friction and promoting smoother engine performance, regular oil changes contribute to better fuel efficiency and overall performance.
During a premium oil change on your tractor, Iron Maintenance technicians will do a 12-point inspection that can identify and correct issues that may potentially develop into extensive damage down the road.
*The frequency of oil changes for semi trucks can vary depending on several factors, including the specific engine type, the manufacturer’s recommendations, and the operating conditions of the truck. Generally, it is advisable to follow the guidelines provided by the truck manufacturer and consult the owner’s manual to determine the most appropriate oil change interval for your semi truck.
