Diesel engines generally last longer without major engine repairs than gasoline engines, but diesel engines require regular maintenance if you want a diesel engine to last! Dirty fuel or fuel filters can clog a diesels fuel injection system. Most vehicle manufacturers have maintenance schedules which should be followed as closely as possible. Maintenance items such as changing the lubricating oil, changing the air filter, changing the fuel filter, bleeding the fuel system, draining the water separators, etc are critical in a diesel engine. Keeping all diesel engine components like glow plugs, fuel injectors, and turbo chargers in proper working order increases the life on your engine.
