The diesel engine that powers your Ford includes lots of moving metal components. If these weren’t lubricated, they would quickly succumb to friction and be destroyed. That’s where engine oil comes in. It provides this lubrication so that your engine stays at its peak. However, all engine oil breaks down over time, and will need to be changed to keep the engine lubricated.
If you get your diesel oil changed at Byers Ford, we recommend getting your diesel oil changed every 10,000 miles or once a year. This is because we use high-quality synthetic diesel oil. When you stop by for this service, our technicians will drain the old oil and remove the old oil filter. We will then replace them with an OEM filter and genuine Ford synthetic diesel oil.
Although both types of oil serve the same purpose, they are made differently. Oil for diesel engines tends to have a higher viscosity than the oil used in gas engines. In addition, diesel oil — especially high-quality diesel oil like you will find at Byers Ford — is filled with anti-wear additives that help prevent excessive and premature wear in your engine. If you were to use diesel oil in a gas-powered vehicle, it would damage the catalytic converter, which is more delicate than the catalytic converters in diesel vehicles.
