1. If the oil drain interval being used is greater than 24,000 km [15,000 mi], as determined by the Oil Drain Intervals section below, the fuel filter change can be extended until the oil drain interval.
2. The oil drain intervals are based on an engine equipped with a 14.2 liter [15 qt] capacity lubricating oil pan and a normal duty cycle. For detailed information on oil drain intervals for a specific application/duty cycle, refer to the Oil Drain Intervals section of this procedure.
3. Extended coolant drain/flush/fill intervals may be followed when certain requirements are met. For information on these requirements, refer to the Coolant Requirements and Maintenance Bulletin 3666132.
4. The aftertreatment diesel particulate filter clean/replace interval is based on the use of lubricating oils that meet the Cummins Engineering Standard (C.E.S.) 20081 oil specification. If a non-low ash lubricating oil meeting the American Petroleum Institute (API) performance classification CI-4/SL and/or C.E.S. 20078 is used, the service intervals for the aftertreatment systems will be reduced to 241,000 km [150,000 mi] or 5000 Hours.

Follow the manufacturer's recommended maintenance procedures for the starter, alternator, generator, batteries, electrical components, exhaust brake, charge air cooler, radiator, air compressor, air cleaner, freon compressor, and fan clutch. Refer to Procedure 203-001 (Component Manufacturers) in Section M.
