Caterpillar D3K, D4K and D5K: Maintenance (Every 500 Service Hours or 3 Months)

6 steps
This quarterly maintenance procedure helps you check your Engine Oil and Filter. It also gives you the complete list on how to replace your Fuel System Secondary Filter.
  • Engine Oil and Filter - Change

  • ! WARNING

  • Hot oil and components can cause personal injury.

  • Do not allow hot oil or components to contact skin.

  • NOTICE: A 500 hour engine oil change interval is available, pro- vided that the operating conditions and recommend- ed multigrade oil types are met. When these require- ments are not met, shorten the oil change interval to 250 hours, or use an S·O·S Services oil sampling and analysis program to determine an acceptable oil change interval.

  • If you select an interval for oil and filter change that is too long, you may damage the engine.
