TEL Maintenance Intervals – Freightliner:

A freightliner is the perfect solution for your truck leasing needs. In fact, it is a top-of-the-line truck. Further, here are some tips when you lease a freightliner:

  • Grease job every 20-25k
  • Full oil change every 60k with 10w30 semi-synthetic oil – TEL recommends Rotella t5
  • The above intervals are per the manufacturer; oil changes can be up to 5,000 miles early, if you prefer
  • Replace the Davco fuel filter as needed (Level in the clear bowl will rise as the filter clogs)
  • Replace the fuel filters on the engine about every other oil change
  • Replace the engine air filter every 90-100k miles
  • Replace the cabin air filter as needed. If you have a pet, this will need to be changed more often
  • Air dryer Coalescent filter must be replaced every 150,000 miles (filter must be used). Failure to replace this can cause emission system related issues
  • Drain your air tanks daily to prevent moisture build up in the air system which can damage emissions and transmission components
