TEL Maintenance Intervals – Kenworth with a Paccar Engine and Auto Transmission:

Required Maintenance

If you’re looking to lease a truck, a Kenworth is the solution for you. However, you need to keep up with the maintenance. So, here are some maintenance tips for when you lease a Kenworth with a Paccar engine and auto transmission:

  • Grease job every 20-25k
  • Full oil change every 45k with semi-synthetic oil
  • 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
  • Replace the fuel filters on the engine every 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 (the Kenworth 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
