Diesel technology has come a long way in recent years, from ultra-low sulfur diesel to biodiesel. Obtaining DPF filters to reduce emissions and high-efficiency common rail injection systems to obtain the maximum kilometers for each Euro of fuel. All of these changes are great if you are taking the right steps to keep your diesel truck running at peak performance. From Turbo3 we advise you and give you support, in everything related to the truck and its maintenance, here are the 4 main tips you should know to keep the turbo in your truck in top shape

1. Diesel engine turbochargers for trucks

  • Turbochargers are the key to making your diesel run efficiently. In order for you to get the maximum life and performance out of your induction system, there are a few simple ways to make sure this part is not a problem.
  • First of all, always start the engine and allow it a few minutes to put everything in place without moving the vehicle. Getting in and bleeding the gas as soon as you start it is one of the worst things you can do with a cold engine. You must allow time for the oil to reach every corner inside your engine, the turbo is just one of the main parts that needs the oil to get there.
  • Oil additives are also excellent for turbochargers and oil systems in diesel vehicles due to the amount of heat these engines create. Oil additives will help keep lubrication at peak levels and help these complex parts work for a long time.

2. Biodiesel, ULSD and diesel fuel additives for trucks

  • Fuel has been going between ULSD and biodiesel. These are the two main fuels that you will see at any truck stop or fuel station. It doesn’t matter which one you use, always need a diesel fuel additive . Diesel fuel additives will keep those injectors flowing at full capacity, with a nice and uniform spray pattern.
  • You also want to find a fuel additive that burns the water. Many additives on the market will try to burn the water through the injection system, but why? Why make it more difficult for your diesel vehicle to have a fuel and water separator for some reason? The fuel and water separator is made to remove water from diesel fuel, so find an additive that removes water and makes systems work much easier.
  • Another thing for which diesel fuel additives are excellent is fuel gelling. . In the cold months, nobody wants to get out of their vehicle because it won’t start, so why not have a feeling of security when using a fuel additive to eliminate this headache?

3. Diesel oil and filter changes for trucks

  • This is another vital maintenance item on a diesel engine. Diesel oil changes are critical: As previously stated, these engines are high temperature engines. The useful life of the engine oil depends on the frequency with which the vehicle is driven and the conditions in which it is used. Following OEM recommended oil change intervals is crucial to keep the engine running.
  • While it seems like engine oil would be the only filter you should be concerned about, it isn’t! Diesel fuel filters must also be changed at certain intervals. With today’s diesel fuels, this is as important as changing the oil and air filters. This should also be a priority service element.

4. Diesel Coolant and Additives

  • We have said several times in this article that diesel engines are high temperature engines, and it is true! So, let’s talk about refrigerants. For anyone who has walked into an auto parts store and needed coolant and had no idea what they were looking for, we are sure that when you got to the cooling section your head ached. There are different colors and different specifications, and you wondered which one is right for me. Again, you will want to use the OEM recommended coolant.
  • Mixing coolants is one of the worst things you can do to any engine. This can create a chemical reaction and leave your cooling system like you are trying to make a smoothie. This will leave you with a whole new set of problems until you need a completely new engine.
  • Another thing that people plan to do is add water. Whereas if you are stranded on the side of the road and this is all you have, then do it, but once you get where you need to go, you should swap it for the recommended coolant. Running water does not disperse heat like a real coolant does, so over time this can also lead to bigger problems, not to mention that the engine lock could crack and freeze in those cold winter months.

In summary:


Keep your foot away from the pedal until the engine is at operating temperature to make sure all those intricate parts are properly lubricated.


Use a diesel fuel additive to keep your injection system clean and prevent your fuel from gelling and not having to get off the truck in the dead of winter


Keep schedule with your truck oil, air and fuel filter changes.


Lastly, make sure that the coolant you are running on your engine meets or exceeds OEM specifications.
