Diesel Pusher Oil Change

How much is the most you have ever paid for an oil change. That is for oil, filter, air filters, gas filters and air dry filter?

We usually have the maintenance work done at Freightliner in Gaffney. Cannot recall of the top of my head (close to a grand or a bit more when they do the gen set and all) , but it certainly is not cheap! However, these guys do chassis adjustments if needed, tire/wheel alignment etc. I feel confident that we are safe for a while, more so than when I have some local truck shop do the work when they are usually working on everything from log trucks to Mack dumpers

I have my routine service done at Speedco. I pay $169.95 for the service which includes some filters, but not all that you mentioned!

I always do my own so don't have a reference point. If you check out Speedco they charge $240 for a full service, but that doesn't include replacing the air filter. The air dryer doesn't have a filter but has a desiccant cartridge which only needs changing every few years. Another easy DIY job.

Speedco does seem to be a less expensive option. We bought our coach used so to baseline the maintenance I had EVERYTHING changed, all filters, pack wheel bearings, service genny, flush radiator, new air filter, change differential fluid, adjust brakes, etc.

Total was just under 2K

Just oil in engine and genny, new fuel and oil filters was less than $500 at Speedco.

I'm a DIY'er:

3126 Caterpillar engine (air filter,oil filter and fuel filter, 5 gal Rotella oil)= approx $225

3000 Allison trans (synthetic fluid 5 gal and high cap filters) = approx $ 290

7500 Gen (oil 1 gal, oil filter and air filter) = approx $ 40

(These quantities and figures are generalized, lets not get specific)


$ 555

Thanks for the info on Speedco. We are in Tx for the winter and I went to Camper Clinic in Rockport and was taken to the cleaner for an oil and filter change. Just a heads up to winter Tx.

I took my Monaco to Speedco and they wouldn't do the work because they told me they can't go inside my RV to change the fuel filter. Don't know why. Call them to make sure they can do your rig.

Oil change, oil filters, fuel filters, for both engine and generator, replace air dryer canster, complete chassis inspection, test anti-freeze, check all hoses, belts etc. $ 750 at Trans-West an Cummins/Frightliner authorized service center. They have a truck lift that they drive the MH on and lift up so they can do a full chassis inspection.

Bummer... It must have to do with filter placement. I can reach all my filters and never go inside, and I am NO mechanic.

Texas is mighty big but if you are near Kerrville A&A tire has a large service facility. They charged me $201.34 for engine oil and chassis lube service. They used my fuel filter and did not change air filter.

About a month ago: Oil and filters (including fuel filters, coolant, and air filter) on my ISL400 = $440. Full service on Onan 7.5K generator = $118. I'm beginning to feel ripped off!
