Extended Idle times

186 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Satar
I have a 2021 GMC Elevation 3.0 duramax. I work in the oilfield and I idle my truck ALOT, just on this hitch probably close to 150ish hours and counting. What do I need to do to keep my truck in good condition? Since my truck is my office while in the field.

if your going to idle that much start saving for new emissions components. not even gas motors like to idle that much.

the real dangers of excessive idling beyound emmissions damage is building up moisture in the oil. so you need to do oil changes based on hours run and mileage not just mileage
