LUBRICATION AND PRBEVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
The Lubrication and Preventive Maintenance Schedule is intended as a guide for establishing a preventive
maintenance schedule. The suggestions and recommendations for preventive maintenance should be followed
as closely as possible to obtain long life and best performance from a Detroit Diesel engine. The intervals
indicated on the chart are time or miles (in thousands) of actual operation.
MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE EXPLANATION
The time or mileage increments shown apply only to the maintenance function described. These functions
should be coordinated with other regularly scheduled maintenance such as chassis lubrication.
The daily instructions pertain to routine or daily starting of an engine and not to a new engine or one that has
not been operated for a considerable period of time. For new or stored engines, carry out the instructions given
in Preparation to Start Engine First Time in chapter II Operations.
