 oil for diesel engin

It occured to me that I read on the oil container that it meet all sorts of specifications API, GL, etc. so I looked at the oil on the shelf an it meet all current new car and light truck GASOLINE requirments.
What should I put in my TC24D? I am new to diesel engins's and I don't want to start off on the wrong foot.
Kevin

 oil for diesel engin

Kevin,
You're probably looking at some name-brand oil such as Valvoline, Castrol, Pennzoil, etc that is meant to be used in passenger cars or light trucks. For diesels, you need an oil such as Shell Rotella or Chevron Delo 400 (there are many others, but those are the two that are commonly available around here). Look at the API Service Categories on the back of the bottle. A "C" such as CH-4, CF, etc. is for compression fired (diesel) engines, an "S" such as SJ is for spark fired (gasoline) engines.

You can always buy the New Holland brand oil from the dealer. I've never priced it because my NH dealer is almost 2 hours away; I use Delo 400 in my TC29.

Hope it helps,
Bill

I used Mobil Blend in mine the last change. I had the same question regarding the gasoline statement on the bottle so I contacted Mobil. They said it is fine to use in a deisel as Bill suggested, it has the CG rating. It was around $2 a quart at Wally World.

 oil for diesel engin

For diesels, avoiding long idles and working the tractor when it's not up to operating temperature will prolong oil life. Generally, a diesel up to temp puffs a little gray exhaust smoke when throttle is added. More smoke means more soot, unburned fuel etc. that goes into the oil.

If you new to diesels, you may be unaware that it's good to give the good warm-ups before working them but diesels don't warm up much below 1,500 rpm. They may actually cool below normal temps at slow idles. It's also good to give a diesel a cool-down at slow idle before shutting it down after a hard run.

As a historic note, I think that to C and S in the original oil classifications meant Standard and Commercial. Makes much more sense to call it spark and compression nowadays.

Gee, Tom, you're right about that. It says so right on the API web site. I had read on the 'net some years ago that "C" was for compression and "S" was for spark, and I should have known that just because it was printed, doesn't make it true. At least my way is a handy way to remember which is which.
Bill

Bill: I think the C = compression and S = spark is the way the rating codes should be used today. I just thought it's sort of ironic how the original coding system has been adapted to modern conditions.

I wonder what would have happened if the original system used I = industrial and C = common? Carburetor and injector in modern usage perhaps, but well I guess that wouldn't exactly work. I don't suppose this small point of irony is worth more thought so I'll stop.

Bill, That's a great site that you found on oils! It does help me as I haven't chased classifications for a while. CF would be minimum for what I'd like to see in a tractor at this point.

do not stop short of shell rotella 15-40 all around. all truck stops carry it and most rigs on the road use it or delo 400.l the delo oil is a little heavier oil .. both are excellent choice the user decides ...
