Changing your trucks oil every 2,500-3,000 miles is crucial. Changing your oil on a routine basis will help to ensure the life of your truck for many years to come.

There are many benefits that are associated with changing your trucks oil including increased gas mileage, increased performance and improved engine stability and life.

Your trucks oil is packed with important protective additives that can be depleted after about 2,500-3,000 miles.  Oil changes are the very best way to maintain adequate levels of protection for today’s high-performing engines, especially in severe driving conditions that include:

  • Rush Hour traffic commuting that requires frequent stops and idling
  • Dusty driving conditions
  • Heaving towing
  • High temperature operation
  • Long distance trips

Your trucks engine oil carry metals that have worn away, dirt and moisture from the air and combustion gasses that gets past the piston rings as well as sludge from chemical processes. These materials increase friction on your engines metal parts and seals and causes seals and gaskets to harden.

We see the difference in trucks daily that have been serviced regularly and those who have not.

In short changing your trucks oil and oil filter every 2,500-3,000 miles will save you a lot of money later on down the line in engine repairs.

Trinity Custom Tuning
Custom tunes are most likely needed if you modified your car, which are available from any CMR dealer.

The Trinity T-1000 Diesel Programmer can hold up to 5 custom tunes made by any CMR dealer nationwide, the upload process is less than 30sec. This makes the Trinity a valuable product to have. If you tuned your vehicle from stock and like the power your car is producing, most likely you will start adding modifications to your car as time goes on. Good thing you have a Trinity because u can go to any of our CMR dealers and get a custom tune for your exact modification setup. Your car will run better, faster and get the best gas mileage that can be achieved for that particular modification setup.

What is the Diablosport Trinity?
The DiabloSport Trinity is simply put, one of the most advanced tuning devices in the market. With the capability to tune, log and record data, display and customize virtual gauges, read and clear trouble codes. and even compute multiple track times the DiabloSport Trinity is the answer to all of your EFI tuning needs. Trinity supports all vehicle application under a single part number which means you have the option to tune multiple vehicles with only one Trinity (Only 1 vehicle can be tuned at any given time). With a high resolution color touch screen, state of the art graphics/GUI, and the ability to customize gauge layouts the Trinity enhances the interior of any vehicle. The Trinity also has the capabilty to control/communicate extrenal devices such as the DiabloSport Extreme PowerPuck, DiabloSport EGT Module, and other third party devices

The Trinitys tuning options vary depending on the vehicle that is being tuned. Gasoline powered vehicles feature tunes based on minimum octane ratings while Diesels are based on Horse Power Ratings. By way of example, If you have a 2008 Chrysler 300C your options in the tuning menu might be: 93 Octane Performance tune, 91 Octane Performance Tune, and other CAI tunes; and a 2007 F-350 with a 6.0L PowerStroke might have the options of stock, 40 HP, 65 HP, and 100 HP. (Note:These options may not be the same in all models and can vary based on the current update of the tool). The DiabloSport also supports custom tuning and can hold an additional 5 custom tunes. The Trinity also contains the most adjustable parameters in the market.

With over 100MB of on board memory devoted solely to recording and playing back diagnostic PID/DMR data, it allows users to record hours and hours of continuous data streams directly from the vehicle’s PCM/ECM. The Trinity interprets PID and DMR data received from the OBD-II Diagnostic port on your vehicle and converts it into a readable format: A Virtual Gauge! Individual user customization is one of Trinity’s most recognizable features. With Trinity’s dynamic gauge layout there is literally an infinite number of combinations/customization of gauges to view! Users can even set up gauge alarms and shift points based on precise vehicle data and using the Trinity’s LED lights.

Using parameters such as vehicle speed, peak torque, wheel speed and others, the Trinity is able to accurately compute quarter mile, 1/8 mile or 0-60 and 0-100 time trials. Keep in mind that these numbers may or may not be accurate depending on variables, but they sure are fun to see! The Trinity’s virtual tree allows users to choose to either monitor their reaction time (like the real world) or have the tree start when they press the gas from a stop. There are advantages to both! If you are using reaction time, you will gain experience for the track when launching off the line while the motion start will show you the time less human error. It’s your choice as to which you prefer!

Trinity can also be used as a diagnostic code reader. Save yourself hundreds of dollars each year reading/clearing your own computer codes rather than paying a dealer to do the same. Its as easy as a few simple steps. The DiabloSport Trinity’s diagnostic code reader function can be used on multiple Vehicles at any given time.

Synthetic Diesel Oil

Synthetic oil is an oil product that contains additional chemical ingredients that are not present in crude oils. These additional ingredients are synthesized or created artificially and added to petroleum as a means of meeting specific needs for lubrication.

Fully synthetic motor oils contain non-conventional, high-performance fluids and a system of additives that helps prevent wear, keeps engines clean, flows easily, maintains viscosity performance, prevents rust and reduces friction.

Using synthetic oil has many advantages associated with it. The addition of artificial ingredients also helps to ease the burden on diminishing crude oil reserves, making it possible to use natural oils much more efficiently. Using a synthetic product often minimizes the oil sludge issues in your truck especially in older vehicles. Synthetic oils also have a higher tolerance to heat and aging.

A major benefit of using synthetic oil is a more efficient performance when your trucks engine is started in cold weather. Petroleum-based motor oil thickens in cold temperatures, requiring the starter and battery to work much harder to start a cold engine. Synthetic oil is not as affected by low temperatures and begins to lubricate all the working parts much more quickly and efficiently than crude oil products would, thus lowering your chance of gumming and unnecessary wear on your trucks individual engine components.

Synthetic oil was originally developed as a way to deal with the shortage of crude oil products and is used more frequently today due to the better performance. During periods when the price of crude oil rises significantly, synthetic oils may also be a less expensive lubricant option to go with.

Advantages of Using Synthetic Oil:

  • Better low and high temperature viscosity performance
  • Improved fuel economy in most engines
  • Decreased evaporative loss
  • Better lubrication on cold starts
  • Resistance to oxidation, thermal breakdown and oil sludge problems
  • Oil changes are not needed as often because synthetic is more durable

Disadvantages of Using Synthetic Oil:

  • The cost is usually 2 to 4 times more than petroleum-based oils
  • The lower friction may make them unsuitable for break-in period
  • Potential decomposition problems in certain chemical environments
  • Potential stress cracking of plastic components like polypxymethylene (POM) in the presence of  polyalpholefins (POA’s)
  • Synthetics do not hold lead in suspension as well as mineral oil
  • Synthetic oils are not recommended in automotive rotary engines
