3406 MARINE ENGINE Caterpillar

Lubrication And Maintenance Chart


The LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE CHART lists all serviceable items commonly ordered on this engine. The items are listed according to their frequency of maintenance, followed by those items needing only "As Required" maintenance.

The maintenance time intervals are expressed in Service Meter Units. The Service Meter on your engine shows the total number of units your engine has run. Use the Service Meter readings for determining your maintenance schedules. Perform the maintenance at multiple intervals of the units shown. For example, when the Service Meter shows "100" on the dial, all items listed under "EVERY 10 SERVICE METER UNITS" should be serviced now for the tenth time, and all items under "EVERY 50 SERVICE METER UNITS" should be serviced for the second time.

Diesel fuels, "CD" and "MPGM" lubricants, and the types of battery and coolant make-up water to use are explained in the topic "Key to Fuels, Lubricants and Water" which follows the chart.

Page numbers refer to the LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES where the detailed service instructions for that item can be found.
