I have never owned a Diesel engine before two questions 1 ) do you use regular engine oil you use for a gasoline engine? 2) do you use def ( diesel exhaust fluid)
You need to use engine oil formulated for diesel engines. The Deere Plus-50 II is a good oil as is Shell Rotella. Your Operator's Manual will list the particular specifications that your engine oil needs to adhere to. I would advise to NOT skimp when it comes to engine oil or filters.I have never owned a Diesel engine before two questions 1 ) do you use regular engine oil you use for a gasoline engine? 2) do you use def ( diesel exhaust fluid)
It is also not a fuel additive. For vehicles (including tractors) that need it, it is a separate tank that houses DEF kind of like a washer fluid tank. DEF is injected into the exhaust system and isn't burned.DEF is a fluid added to a pollution control device, its NOT a motor oil added to an engine. Do not confuse DEF with a motor oil as they are not the same thing. Using DEF fluid in your tractors crankcase would be as helpful as filling the engine crankcase with Aunt Jamima Pancake Syrup. While Aunt Jamima's syrup may resemble motor oil, its certainly not the same. Plus, motor oils make a poor substitute for a good breakfast food syrup.....
