      1. The lubricating oil and lubricating oil filter interval can be adjusted based on fuel consumption, gross vehicle weight, and idle time. Refer to Oil Drain Intervals in this section.
      2. Test the SCA concentration level every 6 months unless concentration is over three units; then check at every oil drain interval until concentration is below three units.
      3. Antifreeze check interval is every oil change or 19,000 Kilometers [12,000 Miles], 500 hours or 6 months, whichever occurs first. The operatormust use a heavy-duty year-round antifreeze that meets the chemical composition of ASTM D6210. The antifreeze change interval is 2 years or 77,000 Kilometers [48,000 Miles], whichever occurs first. Antifreeze is essential for freeze, overheat, and corrosion protection.
      4. Follow the manufacturer's recommended maintenance procedures for the starter, alternator, generator, batteries, electrical components, engine brakes, exhaust brake, charge-air cooler, air compressor, refrigerant compressor, and fan clutch.
      5. This cooling system requirement to Flush at this scheduled maintenance includes Drain, Flush, and Fill.

      Oil Drain Intervals
      Refer to the following flowchart to determine the maximum recommended oil change and filter change intervals in kilometers, miles, hours, or months, whichever comes first.
