Dodge Cummins Diesel - Reduce your Operating Expenses
Learn about the Benefits and proper use of AMSOIL Synthetic Diesel Engine Oils and Chassis Lubricants for your Dodge Cummins Diesel.
*How to Reduce or Prevent Turbocharger Bearing Seizures in the Dodge Cummins Turbo Diesels
One of the many specific areas, on turbocharged Dodge Cummins Diesel engines, that can clearly benefit from the use of synthetic oil is the turbocharger. When a turbocharged engine is shut off immediately after use, "heat soak" occurs due to the extremely high temperature still present in the turbocharger. Over a period of time this can lead to deposits that can reduce or block the oil flow to the turbocharger bearings which can lead to turbocharger bearing seizure.
AMSOIL's Synthetic Diesel Oils are inherently more thermally stable than many diesel oils on the market and have been shown to keep turbochargers considerably cleaner than other brands of oil. While poor quality engine oils have been shown to cause turbocharger bearing seizure in under 100 hours during a "heat soak" test.
Many engine oils will survive the 100 hour "heat soak" test, but..., with considerable deposits and incipient oil passage blocking. If you use low quality diesel oils make sure you let the engine idle for a few minutes after use to allow the engine and turbocharger to cool. This does not eliminate deposit formation but it can reduce it.
Take a look at the varnish deposits in this picture. These are the results of a severe high temperature deposit test. This test clearly shows that AMSOIL synthetic oil keeps engines cleaner longer than other major brands diesel oils. Which oil would you rather have protecting your engine?
The bottom line: To prevent or eliminate turbocharger bearing seizure, there is no substitute for a high quality synthetic diesel oil (like AMSOIL's) as they have been have been proven to maintain turbochargers in an almost "as fitted" condition and significantly reduce deposit formation.
We are here to help you learn the facts and show you how you can use AMSOIL and get a superior product and also increase the performance and add to the longevity of your Dodge Cummins Turbo Diesel plus save time and money. The Dodge Cummins Turbo Diesel is an excellent vehicle and exceptionally well engineered by Daimler Chrysler. In our opinion it is one of the best vehicles ever produced, however there are ways to make the performance and longevity even better with AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants.
Specifically for the Dodge Cummins Diesel
, AMSOIL engineers and manufactures a 15W-40
Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil (as well as Series 3000 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel Synthetic) that when used in conjunction
with Donaldson Endurance ELF-7349 engine oil filter will allow you to travel 25,000 miles between filter changes and
approximately 25,000 miles between oil changes. If you use oil analysis you can usually go longer than 25,000 miles on
the oil. Other AMSOIL benefits include reduced sludge and deposit formation, extreme temperature protection, improved
fuel efficiency and rust and corrosion prevention and it does not void any new vehicle warranty. AMSOIL Synthetic
Lubricants meet and exceed all API rated and Dodge specifications

The other option is to install an AMSOIL Dual Remote By-Pass Filtration System.
With this system you only change your
oil when oil analysis indicates. The AMSOIL Ea full flow filter is changed at 25,000 mile intervals and the by-pass
filter is changed at approximately 25,000 miles for normal duty service. The AMSOIL 15W-40 Synthetic Heavy Duty Oil or
the Series 3000 5W-30 HDD does not break down like conventional petroleum based motor oils, is much more shear stable and
does not have the waxes, paraffins and by-products that come out of crude oil that is pumped from the earth.
Dodge Cummins Diesels, when
using laboratory oil chemical
analysis every 25,000 miles it will indicate the oil is perfectly suitable for
continued service. Oil analysis will alert you to other things also that
may be going on in your Turbo Diesel. Other customers have traveled well over 100,000
miles and oil analysis still indicates no oil change necessary. In addition, the AMSOIL By-Pass filter will also remove up to a
pint of water from your vehicle's lubrication system, which is especially
important in a diesel engine. Without this, the water promotes rust,
corrosion and rapid wear. Internal engine heat also creates acids which
also wear the engine components. The water and acids build and
continue to work destroying your engine even after engine shutdown.
provides a big return
for your small investment by extending engine life by preventing
premature component failure, reducing maintenance costs by eliminating
unnecessary component changes and a decrease in downtime due to premature
scheduled maintenance as well enabling calculation of optimum drain
intervals that will reduce lubricant costs and assure maximum engine
Your regular full flow engine oil filter will only remove wear particles down to the 20-25 micron range. The filter cannot remove finer particles because the oil must be filtered quickly while removing most of the particles present in the oil, except the particles below the 20 micron range. A study completed by Federal Mogul Corp. analyzing over 7000 main and connecting rod bearings concluded that 60% of all engine wear occurs in the 5-20 micron range. This is why no matter how much you change your current full flow oil and filter, regardless of brand, that you still are not removing the particles that cause the greatest wear in your engine.
I f you choose not to install the Dual Remote by-pass filtration system then the AMSOIL ELF-7349 engine filter would be of a significant benefit to the long term durability of your engine as well as allowing for 25,000 miles of service on the filter. When you reach 25,000 miles you can either change the oil and filter or take an oil sample from the dipstick tube using an AMSOIL sampling pump and send it into Oil Analyzer's Inc. using a pre-paid kit. Oil analysis will indicate the exact condition of the oil and whether it is suitable for continued service as well as determining if there are any other engine components or wear items that you need to be concerned with.
