Oil leaks are frustrating, embarrassing, and potential environmental hazards. Leaking oil onto your garage or driveway can mean potentially contaminating your lawn and causing harm to nearby animals and plants. You're also doing damage to your car. Constantly topping up your oil can lead to accidental overfilling, and your leak may progress rapidly enough to cause your oil to drop to dangerous levels.
While a slow oil leak isn't an issue that you need to address immediately, it's also not one that you should put off for too long.
If you have a vehicle with a diesel engine, then it will rely on a diesel particulate filter. It's designed to capture soot that is later burned off for safer emissions. It's key that you maintain this filter for optimal engine performance, which you can do if you take these steps.
Use the Right Oil In Your Vehicle
The particulate that is made from a diesel engine is dependent on the type of engine oil you use.
