2006 Caterpillar 525 service intervals

I bought the Intrigue used and didn't get recommendations for service intervals for engine oil, etc. Does anyone know how often oil, etc. should be changed?

I would go down to the CAT shop and have an engine oil analysis. This will determine what will need to be done. Cost anywhere from $15.00 to $25.00. CAT will give you the recommendation there.

I assume you have the C-13, 525 HP CATERPILLAR, engine.
It is recommended to do a PM at 16,000 miles. Since you do not have the manuals
Good idea to stop by a CAT dealer.
You will want to have the valve lash adjusted between 36000 and 50k. Good for the rest of ownership.
Personaly, I change oil and filters every time I make a coast to coast round trip. This keeps me in my personal 12000 mile limit. Take into consideration time sitting. Time also takes it's toll on used diesel oil.
It is a fact. As stated the best insurance you can get is a regular oil analysis.
I like CAT dealers (PETERSON IN EUGENE, OR they supplied all CAT engines to CC) for the occasional service and SPEEDCO for on the road quick PM's and oil analysis.
