Preface
The service life, operational reliability and function of the drive systems are largely dependent on the fluids
and lubricants employed. The correct selection and treatment of these fluids and lubricants are therefore
extremely important. This publication specifies which fluids and lubricants are to be used.
The Fluids and Lubricants Specifications will be amended or supplemented as necessary. Before
using them, make sure you have the latest version. The latest version is also available at:

Note:
Use of the approved fluids and lubricants, either under the brand name or in accordance with the
specifications given in this publication, constitutes part of the warranty conditions.
The supplier of the fluids and lubricants is responsible for the worldwide standard quality of the named products.
Fluids and lubricants for drive plants may be hazardous materials. Certain regulations must be
obeyed when handling, storing and disposing of these substances.
TIM ID: 0000010134 – 006
These regulations are contained in the manufacturers’ instructions, legal requirements and technical guidelines
valid in the individual countries. Great differences can apply from country to country and a generally valid guide
to applicable regulations for fluids and lubricants is therefore not possible within this publication.

Engine oils
Dispose of used fluids and lubricants in accordance with local regulations.
Used oil must never be disposed of via the fuel tank!
Requirements of the engine oils for MTU approval
The MTU requirements for approval of engine oils for diesel engines are contained in the MTU Factory Standards
MTL 5044 and MTL 5051 for first-use oils and corrosion-inhibiting oils. For gas engines, oil approval requirements
are contained in MTU Factory Standard MTL 5074. These standards can be ordered under these reference numbers.
Manufacturers of engine oils are notified in writing if their product is approved.
Approved engine oils are divided into the following MTU Quality Categories:
• Oil category 1: Standard quality / Single and multigrade oils
• Oil category 2: Higher quality / Single and multigrade oils
• Oil category 2.1: Multigrade oils with a low ash-forming additive content (low SAPS oils)
• Oil category 3: Highest quality / Multigrade oils
• Oil category 3.1: Multigrade oils with a low ash-forming additive content (low SAPS oils)
Low SAPS oils are oils with a low sulfur and phosphor content and an ash-forming additive content of ≤1%.
They are only approved if the sulfur content in the fuel does not exceed 500 mg/kg. When using diesel particle
filters, it is advisable to use these oils to avoid fast coating of the filter with ash particles.
Selection of a suitable engine oil is based on fuel quality, projected oil drain interval and on-site climatic conditions.
At present there is no international industrial standard which alone takes into account all these criteria.
Compliance with the EPA emission limits can no longer be ensured when engine oils are
used that are not approved by MTU. The use of such unapproved engine oils leads to the
annulment of the EPA certificate.
Mixing different engine oils is strictly prohibited!
Changing to another oil grade can be done together with an oil change. The remaining oil
quantity in the engine oil system is not critical in this regard.
Special features
MTU engine oils
One single-grade and one multigrade oil are available from MTU/MTU-DD. These engine oils are marketed under
the name Power Guard DEO SAE 40 and SAE 15W-40. The engine oils are tuned to the MTU Off-Highway
application groups and correspond to oil category 2. A single-grade and multigrade oil are available at MTU Asia.
These engine oils are marketed under the name Fascination of Power SAE 40 and SAE 15W-40.
Engine oils for the Series 2000, 4000-01, 4000-02
For Series 2000, 4000-01 and 4000-02 engines, engine oils other than those listed as approved in Section 8 may be
used provided they satisfy all of the specifications and match all of the characteristics listed in Tables 1 and 2.

The engines of the Series 2000 M84, 2000 M94 and 4000-03 marine must not use Category
1 oils.
Restrictions on Series 595, 956 TB31/TB32/TB33 and 1163 applications
For fast commercial ferries with Series 595, Series 956 TB31/TB32/TB33 or 1163 engines,
Category 2 or 3 oils are generally specified.
Restrictions on Series 8000 applications
Only the following engine oils may be used:
• BP Energol HPDX SAE 30 / SAE 40
• Castrol HLX SAE 30 / SAE 40
• Chevron Delo 400 SAE 30 / SAE 40
• Exxon Mobil Delvac 1630 SAE 30
• Exxon Mobil Delvac 1640 SAE 40
• Shell Sirius X SAE 30 / SAE 40
• MTU Power Guard DEO SAE 40
SAE-40 engine oils may only be used in combination with preheating and oil priming (Toil
>30 °C).
Restrictions when using low SAPS oils
Oil Categories 2.1 and 3.1 may be used if the sulfur content in the fuel does not exceed
500 mg/kg.
Viscosity grade SAE 40 is stipulated for gas engines!
The selection of a suitable engine oil for gas engines depends primarily on the type of gas used to power the engine.
Another significant factor is the quality of the gas regarding its purity. This requires that the operator regularly carries
out gas checks. The gas-engine oils to be used feature a low ash content (< 0.6%) and base numbers within a range
of 4-6 mgKOH/g. This prevents increased ash deposits which can lead to reduced catalytic converter performance.

Selection of viscosity grades
Selection of the viscosity grade is based primarily on the ambient temperature at which the engine
is to be started and operated. If the relevant performance criteria are observed the engines can be
operated both with single grade and multigrade oils, depending on the application. Standard values
for the temperature limits in each viscosity grade are shown in Chart 1.
If the prevailing temperature is too low, the engine oil must be preheated.
Chart 1
Oil drain intervals for diesel engines
Engine oil drain intervals depend on the engine-oil quality, its conditioning, the operating conditions and the fuel used.
The intervals quoted (Table 3) are guidelines based on operational experience and are valid
for applications with a standard load profile.

Lubricants for four-stroke engines
The oil drain intervals must be determined by oil analysis if one or more of the following
difficult operating conditions are encountered:
• Extreme climatic conditions
• High engine start-up frequency
• Frequent and prolonged idling or low-load operation
• High sulfur content in the fuel of 0.5 to 1.5% by weight (→ Page 10)
New oils must be selected which have total base numbers appropriate to the sulfur
content of the fuel in use. (→ Page 08)
For applications involving low runtimes, the engine oil must be changed every two years
at the latest irrespective of its category.
Where engine oils with higher-grade corrosion-inhibiting characteristics are in use (→ Page 45),
a change must be carried out every 3 years at the latest.
In individual cases the service life of the engine oil can be optimized by regular laboratory analysis and
appropriate engine inspections in consultation with the MTU service point responsible:
The first oil sample should be taken from the engine as a “basic sample” after the engine has
run for approximately 1 hour after being filled with fresh oil.
Further oil samples should be analyzed after engine runtimes which are to be specified. (→ Page 08)
The appropriate engine inspections are to be carried out before and after the oil analyses.
After completion of all analyses, and depending on the findings, special agreements
can be reached for individual cases.
Oil samples must always be taken under the same conditions and at the point provided
for that purpose (see Operating Instructions).
Oil drain intervals for Series 4000 L61/L62 gas engines
Engine oil drain intervals depend on the engine-oil quality, its conditioning, the operating conditions and the fuel used.
Regular oil analyses are necessary because of the varying gas qualities. At the beginning of the product’s
life cycle, oil samples must be taken and analyzed after every 500 hours of operation.
Given consistent gas quality, an oil drain interval of max. 1,500 hours of operation is recommended.
In individual cases, the oil change intervals can be optimized:
For this purpose, oil samples are analyzed after every 200 – 250 hours of operation (→ Page 08).
The oil samples must always be taken from the extraction point provided and under the same conditions.
Special additives
Engine oils approved have been specially developed for diesel engines and have all necessary properties.
Further additives are therefore superfluous and may even be harmful.
Laboratory analysis
Spectrometric oil analysis
Analysis of the engine oil’s additive-metal content is carried out by the MTU laboratory to determine the brand of oil.
MTU does not generally analyze the oil’s wear-metal contents in order to determine the degree of engine wear.
These content levels are very much dependent on the following factors, among others:
• Individual engine equipment status
• Tolerance scatter
• Operating conditions
• Duty profile
• Fluids and lubricants

General information
Orders for engine oil analyses can be placed with MTU.
The oil sample must be taken in accordance with the Operating Instructions.
The following data is required:
• Oil manufacturer
• Brand name with viscosity class
• Oil service life to date
• Serial number of engine from which oil sample was taken
The following must be submitted (for each oil change):
• Min. 0.25 liters used oil
• Min. 0.25 liters reference sample (after approx. 1 hour’s operation)
• Min. 0.25 liters new oil
Lubricants for four-stroke engines
09
• Miscellaneous assembly materials
Unambiguous conclusions as to the wear status of the engine components involved are therefore not
possible. This means that no limit values can be given for wear-metal contents.
Used-oil analysis
In order to check the used oil, it is recommended that regular oil analyses be carried out. Oil samples should be
taken and analyzed at least once per year and during each oil change and under certain conditions, depending on
application and the engine’s operating conditions, sampling / analysis should take place more frequently.
The test methods and limit values given in Table 4 and Table 5 (Analytical limit values for used diesel / gas engine
oils) indicate when the results of an individual oil sample analysis are to be regarded as abnormal.
An abnormal result requires immediate investigation and remedy of the abnormality.
The limit values relate to individual oil samples. When these limit values are reached or exceeded,
an immediate oil change is necessary. The results of the oil analysis do not necessarily give an
indication of the wear status of particular components.
In addition to the analytical limit values, the engine condition, its operating condition and any
operational faults are decisive factors with regard to oil changes.
Some of the signs of oil deterioration are:
• Abnormally heavy deposits or precipitates in the engine or engine-mounted parts such as oil filters,
centrifugal oil filters or separators, especially in comparison with the previous analysis.
• Abnormal discoloration of components.

Coolants
General information
Coolant definition
Coolant = coolant additive (concentrate) + freshwater in the specified mixing ratio ready for use in the engine.
The corrosion-inhibiting effect of coolant is only ensured with the coolant circuit fully filled. The
only exception is Shell Oil 9156, which maintains its corrosion-inhibiting character even when the
coolant was drained due to oil-film formation in the circuit.
Apart from that, only the corrosion inhibitors approved for internal preservation of the coolant circuit
provide proper corrosion protection when the medium was drained.
The entire cooling system must be free of zinc components. This also applies to coolant
supply and return/drain lines as well as to storage bins.
Coolants must be prepared from suitable fresh water and an MTU-approved coolant additive.
Conditioning of the coolant takes place outside the engine.
Mixing of different coolant additives and supplementary additives is prohibited!
The conditions for the approval of coolant additives are specified in the following MTU works standards (MTL):
• MTL 5047: Emulsifiable corrosion-inhibiting oils
• MTL 5048: Corrosion-inhibiting antifreeze
• MTL 5049: Water-soluble corrosion inhibitors
Coolant manufacturers are informed in writing if their product is approved by MTU.
To prevent cooling system damage:
• When topping up (following loss of coolant) it must be ensured that not only water but also concentrate is
added. The specified antrifreeze and/or corrosion inhibitor concentration must be maintained.
• Do not use concentrations of corrosion-inhibiting additives exceeding 55% by volume (max. antifreeze
protection). Concentrations in excess of this reduce antifreeze protection and heat dissipation.
• The coolant must be free of oil residues.
• All corrosion inhibitors currently approved for internal coolant circuit preservation are water-soluble
and do not provide antifreeze protection. Make sure that the engine is stored safe from frost,
because a certain amount of coolant remains in the engine after draining.
Fresh water requirements
TIM ID: 0000010136 – 007
Only clean, clear water with values in accordance with those in the following table must be used
for preparing the coolant. If the limit values for the water are exceeded, hardness or mineral
content can be decreased by adding demineralized water.

• 1°d = 1.25° English hardness
Emulsifiable corrosion-inhibiting oils
Emulsions of MTU-approved corrosion-inhibiting oils (1.0 – 2.0% by volume) and suitable
fresh water provide adequate corrosion protection.
A 2% by volume concentration must be used for initial filling.
Some corrosion-inhibiting oils tend to foam if used with completely demineralized water. This can
be avoided by adding an appropriate quantity of harder water.
The required quantity of corrosion-inhibiting oil is best mixed in advance in a container with 4 to 5 times the amount
of fresh water and then added to the coolant when the engine is running at operating temperature.
In maintenance stations or multi-engine installations the complete amount of coolant required should be prepared
in a separate container, it can then be used for initial filling or replenishment as required.
Under unfavorable conditions, individual cases of bacterial attack may occur in the emulsifiable
corrosion-inhibiting oils. Treat the coolant emulsion with biocide in this case! refer to Chapter 10
(Flushing and cleaning specifications for engine coolant circuits).
Note:
Slight precipitation may occur where coolant emulsions are used. This is shown by a layer on the surface
of the coolant in the expansion tank. This is of no significance provided that the emulsion concentration
remains within the specified limit values. Change the coolant in the event of a sudden drop in coolant additive
concentration or if the additive is no longer absorbed. If necessary, the engine coolant chambers are to
be cleaned (see the Flushing and cleaning specifications for engine coolant circuits).
Only emulsifiable corrosion-inhibiting oils must be used in engines of the following series:
• Series 538
• Series 595
• Series 956 TB33 up to year of manufacture end of 2008 (see nameplate)
• 1163 -03
Emulsifiable corrosion-inhibiting oils must not be used in engines of the following series:
• Series 099
• Series 183
• Series 2000
• Series 396 TB (external charge air cooling with plate core heat exchanger)
• Series 396 TE (split-circuit cooling system)
• Series 4000
• Series 8000
Special approval presently in effect remain valid.
Emulsifiable corrosion-inhibiting oil must never be used for coolant temperatures >90 °C except
during test stand runs and test runs.
These antifreezes are necessary for engines without heating facilities and operating in areas
where below-freezing temperatures may occur.
Provided that the specified concentrations are maintained, the MTU-approved corrosion inhibiting
antifreezes ensure adequate corrosion protection (see operational monitoring, permissible
concentration (→ Table Permissible concentrations on page 17)).
The corrosion inhibiting antifreeze concentration must be determined not only in accordance with the minimum
anticipated temperatures but with the corrosion protection requirements also.
For approved coolant additives for the individual engine series, refer to Chapter 8 “Approved fluids and Lubricants".

Corrosion-inhibiting antifreezes
Coolants
17
Marine engines are subject to the following limitations when using corrosion-inhibiting antifreezes:
• Series 956-01, 956-02, 1163-03:
These engines are fitted with heating units. Because of their cooler capacity, corrosioninhibiting antifreezes must not be used.
• Series 099, 183, 396:
The use of corrosion-inhibiting antifreeze in these engines is permitted only at seawater
temperatures of up to 20 °C maximum.
• Series 2000 and 4000:
Corrosion-inhibiting antifreeze may be used with these engines at seawater temperatures up to 25 °C max.
• Series 8000:
The use of corrosion-inhibiting antifreezes is not allowed for these engines.
Corrosion-inhibiting antifreezes can be used without reservation in vehicle, locomotive and
stationary applications, except Series 8000 engines.
Note:
Propylene glycol-based corrosion-inhibiting antifreezes are stipulated for use in some types of
applications. These products have a lower thermal conductivity than the usual ethylene glycol
products. This brings about a higher temperature level in the engine.
The product BASF G206 is available for use at extremely low temperatures (< -40 °C).
Special approval presently in effect remain valid.
Water-soluble corrosion inhibitors
Water-soluble corrosion inhibitors are required for higher coolant temperatures and large temperature drops in heat
exchangers, e.g. in TB- (with plate core heat exchanger) and TE-systems in Series 396, 4000 and 183 engines.
For Series 8000 engines, only water-soluble corrosion-inhibitors in accordance with Chapter 8 may be used.
Special arrangements presently in effect remain valid.
The watersoluble corrosion inhibitors recommended by MTU ensure adequate protection provided the correct
concentrations are used. The relevant concentration range for use is listed in the section on operational monitoring.
Flushing with water is required at every change to a different coolant product. This also applies to new engines. The
required procedures are described in Chapter 10 (Flushing and cleaning specifications for engine coolant circuits).
Operational monitoring
Inspection of the fresh water and continuous monitoring of the coolant are essential for trouble-free engine operation.
Fresh water and coolant should be inspected at least once per year and with each fill-up. Inspections can be carried
out using the MTU test kit which contains the necessary equipment, chemicals and instructions for use.
The following tests can be conducted with the MTU Test Kit:
• Determination of total hardness (°d)
• pH value
• Chloride content of fresh water
• Corrosion-inhibiting oil content
• Antifreeze (corrosion-inhibiting) concentration
• Water-soluble corrosion inhibitor content
Orders for fresh water and coolant analysis may be placed with MTU. Samples of min. 0.25 l must be supplied.

Selection of a suitable diesel fuel
The quality of the fuel is very important for satisfactory engine performance, long engine service life and acceptable
exhaust emission levels. The engines can be operated with most diesel fuels sold worldwide. The properties and
limit values specified in Table 1 (fuels of comparable quality) ensure optimum engine performance.
In order to achieve optimum engine performance and satisfactory service life for the entire fuel and injection system,
the limit values for water and total contamination must be complied with in the engine tank for all approved fuel
qualities. Furthermore, it is advisable to integrate an additional filtering system in the fuel system.
Emission certification
The certification measurements for verifying observance of the statutory emission limits are carried
out with the respectively prescribed certification fuels.
Dispose of used fluids and lubricants in accordance with local regulations.
Used oil must never be disposed of via the fuel tank!

Diesel fuel with a FAME content of max. 7% in compliance with DIN EN 590 may be used. Such
fuel may also be used in engines which have not been approved for operation with FAME, without
affecting oil drain intervals.
It is intended that future engine series will be approved for operation with 100% FAME. Further
details will be published at the appropriate time.
TIM ID: 0000010137 – 008
Fuel
• The fuel must comply with DIN EN 14214. Operation with fuels of lower quality
can lead to damage and malfunctions.
• Either FAME or diesel fuel may be used. The various mixtures of FAME and normal diesel fuel
which may occur in the fuel tank as a result, present no problems.
Engine oil and servicing
• For operation using 100% FAME, engine oils are to be preferred which comply with MB Fluids and
Lubricants Specifications, Sheet 228.5 or Oil Category 3 in accordance with MTU Fluids and Lubricants
Specifications. Engine oils in accordance with Sheet 228.3 or Oil Category 2 as per MTU Fluids and
Lubricants Specifications may also be used provided that oil drain intervals are reduced.
• A certain amount of fuel always finds its way into the engine oil via the pistons and cylinders. Its high boiling
point means that FAME does not evaporate but remains in the engine oil in its entirety. Under certain conditions
chemical reactions may take place between FAME and the engine oil. This can lead to engine damage.
• For this reason, engine oil and filter change intervals must be shortened for operation
both with pure FAME and with FAME-diesel mixtures.

Fuels
• For Series 457, 460/1800, 900 and 500 engines, special equipment is available which facilitates an increase in
the engine oil change intervals for operation with 100% FAME. This involves fitting the engines with special
equipment Code MK21 (special unit pump) and Code MK04 (fuel prefilter with heated water separator).
Table 10
Engine version
Engine oil change interval
Engines not fitted with special equipment for operation
with FAME
Reduction of engine oil change interval to 30% of the
interval required for operation with fossil diesel fuels.
Engines fitted with special equipment Code MK21 and
Code MK04
Reduction of engine oil change interval to 50% of the
interval required for operation with fossil diesel fuels.
The relevant engine oil change intervals must be complied with without fail!
Exceeding the engine oil change intervals can cause engine damage!
• Operation with 100% FAME requires shortened fuel filter change intervals. A new fuel filter
must be fitted each time the engine oil is changed.
• Fuel and engine oil must be changed approximately 25 operating hours after conversion to FAME due to
the danger of blockage caused by loosened deposits (FAME has a pronounced cleaning effect).
• Over longer periods, fuel filter service life may be reduced as a result of old residues being carried into the filter
from the fuel system. A special, approved fuel prefilter can be installed as an improvement. This fuel prefilter
with heated water separator is already installed on engines fitted with special equipment Code MK04.
Engine power and engine standstill
• Due to its calorific value, operation with 100% FAME involves a reduction of approx. 8%-10%
in engine power. This leads to a corresponding increase in fuel consumption as compared to
operation with diesel fuel. Engine power corrections are not permissible.
• Prior to any extended period out of operation, the fuel system must be flushed out in order to prevent
congestion. For flushing, the engine must be operated for at least 30 minutes on diesel fuel.
General information
• We can make no comment with regard to the level of FAME resistance of the fuel system,
which is not part of our scope of supply.
• FAME is an extremely effective solvent. Any contact with paint, for example, must therefore be avoided.
• The characteristic smell of FAME exhaust, especially during long periods of idling, may be perceived
as unpleasant. The nuisance caused by smell can be reduced by an oxidation catalyst which may
be installed by the vehicle / equipment manufacturers at their own risk.
Our company accepts no responsibility for and provides no warranty in respect of any fault or damage
connected in any way with the use of FAME of a lower quality or resulting from noncompliance with
our specifications on operation using FAME. All resultant irregularities and consequential damage
lie outside our responsibility.
Vegetable oils as an alternative to diesel fuel
Low-sulfur diesel fuels
Sulfur is contained in chemically bound form in crude oil and is therefore present in fuel at varying levels.
A sulfur content of max. 50 mg/kg or 10 mg/kg (depending on category) has been a European Union requirement
since 01.01.2005. The term “sulfur-free” is used here to designate diesel fuels with a sulfur content of max. 10
mg/kg. Low-sulfur diesel fuels (max. 50 mg/kg) are to be recommended for environmental reasons. In order to
avoid problems with wear, lubricity additives, among other things, are added by the manufacturer.

TIM ID: 0000010137 – 008
The use of pure vegetable oils as an alternative to diesel fuel or FAME is strictly prohibited due to the
absence of standardization and to negative experience (engine damage caused by coking, deposits
in the combustion chambers and oil sludge)!

On Series 538, 595, 956, 1163 engines with cylinder heads not fitted with valve seat inserts, the use of
low-sulfur fuel (< 50 mg/kg) can lead to increased valve seat wear. This wear can be reduced by the
addition of anti-wear additives. Approved additives are listed in Table 11 and must be added to the fuel at
the specified concentration. The additive must be filled before every refueling.

Diesel fuels in winter operation
At low outdoor temperatures, the diesel fuel’s fluidity can be inadequate on account of paraffin precipitation.
In order to prevent operational problems (e.g. clogged filters) during the winter months, diesel fuel
with suitable cold-flow characteristics is available on the market. Deviations are possible during
transitional periods and in individual countries. If no frost-resistant diesel fuels are available, paraffin
oil or aviation turbine fuel must be added before frost sets in. As a basic guide, adding 5% by
volume achieves an improvement of frost resistance of approx. 1° C.
Add the additive to the diesel fuel in good time before the fluidity of the diesel fuel is impaired by paraffin precipitation.
Malfunctions resulting from paraffin precipitation can only be eliminated by heating the entire fuel system.
Petrol (gasoline) must not be added.
Flow improvers
Flow improvers cannot prevent paraffin precipitation but they do influence the size of the
crystals and allow the diesel fuel to pass through the filter.
The effectiveness of the flow improvers is not guaranteed for every fuel.
Certainty is only assured after laboratory testing of the filtering capability.
Required quantities and mixing procedures must be carried out according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
TIM ID: 0000010137 – 008
Heating oil EL
Domestic heating oil differs from diesel fuel mainly because of the following characteristics:
– Cetane number
– Sulfur content
– Oxidation stability
– Corrosion effect on copper
– Lubricity
– Low temperature behavior
Technically, if the characteristics of domestic heating oil satisfy the specifications for the required
diesel fuel, then it can be used in a diesel engine.
A001061/34E

Fuels
Cetane number
DIN 51 603 -1 does not specify the cetane number. If heating oil is used, the cetane number must
therefore be quoted by the supplier or measured and be at least 45 as required in the MTU Fluids and
Lubricants Specification. The calculated cetane index must not be less than 42.
Sulfur content
In accordance with DIN 51603 -1, the maximum sulfur content for EL Standard heating oil is specified as 1000
mg/kg to 50 mg/kg.The max. sulfur content for EL Standard low-sulfur heating oil is 50 mg/kg.
Lubricity
As a basic principle, lubricity additives are not added to the heating oil. Lubrication problems can therefore
be expected when using these qualities of heating oil because of the missing additives.
Compliance with the lubricity specification as per DIN EN ISO 12156-1 (HFRR-Test) of max. 460 µm
must be ensured in coordination with the respective heating oil supplier.
Valve wear
On Series 538, 595, 956, 1163 engines with cylinder heads not fitted with valve seat inserts, the use of
low-sulfur heating oil (< 50 mg/kg) can lead to increased valve seat wear. This wear can be reduced by the
addition of anti-wear additives. Approved additives are listed in Table 11 and must be added to the heating
oil at the specified concentration. The additive must be filled before every refueling.
Supplementary fuel additives
The engines are so designed that satisfactory operation with normal, commercially available fuels is
ensured. Many of these fuels already contain performance-enhancing additives.
The additives are added by the supplier as the agent responsible for product quality.
The anti-wear additives in (→ Table Approved anti-wear additives (Table 11) on page 33) represent an exception.
Attention is drawn to the fact that the use of diesel fuels or additives other than those stipulated in the
MTU Fluids and Lubricants Specifications is always the responsibility of the operator.
Microorganisms in fuel
Bacterial attack and sludge formation may occur in the fuel under unfavorable conditions. In
such cases, the fuel must be treated with biocides in accordance with the manufacturer’s
specifications. Overconcentration must always be avoided.
For prophylactic use, the appropriate concentration must be identified in consultation with the relevant manufacturer.

Fuel for gas engines
Gas engines must be operated exclusively with gases which have been specifically approved for the type of
gas engine in use. The suitability for use of approved gas types must be checked every six months by means
of a gas analysis in order to detect changes in the gas composition and changes to harmful components in
the gas and to take appropriate action. In the entire application and operating range of the engine, the use
of fuels is restricted to purely gaseous fuels. Liquid fuels are not permissible and not specified.
Components that may be used for gas engines are listed in the following tables. Generally valid limits
for the main elements are specified in Table 13. Examples of typical natural gas compositions are shown
in Tables 14 and 15. The listed components are relevant to gas engines. Components other than
those listed below are not permitted for gas engines. They provide a reference value for the most gas
compositions used today. Limit values for the individual components, unless they are explicitly restricted,
are based on the general requirements of freedom from fluid elements, the exclusion of condensate and
hydrocarbons and the global parameters of gas mixing in accordance with Table 16.

Remarks
* = a non-binding guideline value, where oxidation-type catalytic converters are in use.
Analysis and consultation with MTU necessary.
The limit values are based on a calorific value of 10 kWh/m3N. This corresponds to a reference
to fuels with 100% by vol. methane or, if there are other combustible elements in the fuel, an
equal energy equivalent and thus an equal input of pollutants.
Example:
Russian natural gas with a calorific value of 10 kWh/m3N (Table 14) is used. The permissible value for total
sulfur in the gas thus corresponds exactly to the limit value specified in Table 16.
When using gas from Osthannover, for example, with Hu = 8.15 kWh/mN (Table 15) the
permissible max. value of total sulfur is calculated thus:
permissible total sulfur content = 30 mg/m³N (8.15 kWh/m3N : 10.0 kWh/m3N ) = 24.5 mg/m³N

NOx reducing agent AUS 32 for SCR after-treatment
systems
General information
SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) catalysts can be used for NOx- emission reduction. The reducing agent (urea
solution with an urea concentration of 32.5%) in such catalysts reduces the nitrogen oxide emissions.
To ensure efficient operation of the exhaust gas after-treatment system, compliance of the reducing agent
with the quality requirements stipulated in DIN 70070 / ISO 222 41-1 is mandatory.
In Europe, this reducing agent is often offered under the brand name “AdBlue”.
The test methods to determine the quality and characteristics of the reducing agent are specified in the
standards DIN 70071 / ISO 222 41-2. The following table shows the quality characteristics of the reducing
agent together with the associated test methods (extract from ISO 222 41-1).

Storage of reducing agent
For instructions on storage, packing and transport, refer to the ISO 222 41-3 standard . The
instructions of the manufacturer must be observed.
The reducing agent crystallizes at -11 °C.
Avoid direct sunlight because it promotes the occurrence of microorganisms and the
decomposition of the reducing agent.

Preservatives
Requirements
The MTU conditions for preservative approval are specified in MTU Factory Standards for
Deliveries (MTL). The following standards are available:
• Initial-operation oil and corrosion-inhibitor oil, MTL 5051
• Corrosion inhibitors for external preservation, MTL 5052
The preservation product manufacturer is informed in writing if his product is approved by MTU.
Types of preservation
See "Preservation specifications", Chapter 9 (→ Page 83)
Initial operation oils and corrosion inhibiting oils for internal preservation
SAE 30 viscosity grade corrosion inhibiting oils are to be used for internal preservation (oilmoistened components) of MTU engines and gearboxes.
These oils may also be used for running-in and acceptance testing procedures. Some are also suitable for
continuous operation, see "Approved fluids and lubricants", Chapter 8 (→ Page 45).
Corrosion inhibitors for external preservation
For external preservation, all non-painted parts are to be treated with a corrosion inhibitor providing
a wax-like protective coating after the inhibitor solvent has evaporated.
Corrosion inhibiting oils for internal preservation of the fuel system
Fuel injection-pump test oil conforming to DIN ISO 4113 is to be used for internal preservation of the fuel
system. The engine should be run with these oils for the last 10 minutes before shutdown.
Preservation can also be effected using diesel fuel to which approximately 10-12% corrosioninhibitor oil for internal preservation has been added.
Corrosion inhibitors for internal preservation of the cooling circuit

Preservation specifications
General information
The preservation and represervation specifications apply to all MTU diesel and gas
engines as delivered from the factory, i.e:
• reserve stock engines
• installed engines that have not yet been put into service
• field engines with extended downtime, e.g. normal out-of-service periods, out-of-service-periods
for scheduled maintenance or unscheduled repair work.
Field engines and engines that were put out of service for a scheduled major overhaul must
be preserved immediately after their last service period.
All MTU engines are delivered with initial preservation as per factory standard MTV 5073.
Cooling circuits must always be preserved after the coolant has been drained. Preservation is
not required if the coolant is left in the system.
Represervation intervals depending on the storage conditions
Definition of storage conditions
TIM ID: 0000010139 – 007
A distinction is made between the following storage conditions:
Normal
(free of frost, closed heated rooms, max. temperature fluctuations of between 10 and 40
°C, clean, monthly average relative air humidity ≤ 65%)
Difficult
(dust / contamination, with drops below dew point > 20% of the month, monthly average
relative air humidity > 65%)
Unsuitable
(salt-laden air, outdoor storage)
Storage conditions
Packaging
Represervation
Normal
Standard packaging
Every 12 months
Difficult
Standard packaging
Every 6 months
Unsuitable
Special packaging
Every 12 months
Remarks
Additionally every 3 - 4
months a check of the
humidity indicator in the
special packaging
The preservation or represervation agent is the same for all engine types. The type of engine packaging
depends on the storage and transport conditions. The gearbox manufacturer’s preservation specifications
must also be complied with when complete powerpacks / drive systems are be preserved.
Note:
Warranty claims are invalid if the storage is not according to specifications.
Do not use natural rubber sealing material, as it is not resistant to aging.
Only MTU-approved fluids and lubricants as specified in Chapter 8 (Approved fluids and lubricants)
(→ Page 45) are to be used for preservation and represervation .
In event of extended out-of-service periods, machined, non-protected surfaces, for example cylinder liner
running faces, are susceptible to corrosion and must therefore be preserved.
The applicable engine documentation must also be considered together with this Preservation
Specification. Refer to the engine documentation for tasks and checks to be carried out when
shutting down an engine and before re-operating an engine.

Preservation specifications
Preserving diesel engines
Out-of-service period of < 3 months
Engines do not need to be preserved separately. It is sufficient to close the emergency-air shutoff
flaps, if fitted. All fluids and lubricants remain in the engine.
Out-of-service period of 1 – 3 months with installed field engines
Run engine up to operating temperature, then run up to rated speed for about 30 seconds and then shut down at
rated speed. The engine must not be started again. All fluids and lubricants remain in the engine.
The following openings must be sealed tightly:
• Cooling-air inlet
• Combustion-air inlet (close the emergency air shutoff flaps if they are provided).
• Exhaust outlet
• Crankcase breather, if possible (when venting to atmosphere)
Out-of-service period of 1 – 3 months with field engines removed
Prior to removal, run engine up to operating temperature, then run up to rated speed for about 30 seconds
and then shut down at rated speed. The engine must not be started again.
The following openings must be sealed tightly:
• Cooling-air inlet
• Combustion-air inlet (close the emergency air shutoff flaps if they are provided).
• Exhaust outlet
• Crankcase breather, if possible (when venting to atmosphere)
• Coolant circuit
• Fuel system
• Lubricating oil system
• Hydraulic oil circuit
• Electrical connections
• Leave the coolant in the cooling circuit
If it is not possible to leave the coolant in the cooling circuit, drain the coolant and proceed as follows:
• Clean engine if necessary.
• Fill cooling circuit completely with approved corrosion inhibitor for internal preservation of the coolant circuit
(further on referred to as "preservation liquid") in accordance with the instructions in Chapter 8.
• Fill the fuel system completely with diesel fuel
• Carry out the engine preservation run for approx. 10 mins at increased idling speed; the
inhibitor concentrate must reach at least operating temperature.
• Stop the engine
• Allow engine to cool down, where possible, to max. 40 °C.
• Drain the inhibitor concentrate.
• Drain engine oil
• Leave the fuel in the system
If it is not possible to leave the fuel in the system, preserve the fuel circuit in accordance with the instructions in
Chapter 7, "Preservatives", under "Corrosion inhibiting oils for internal preservation of the fuel system " (→ Page 43)
Note regarding the cooling circuit:
To avoid time-consuming flushing cycles when filling the coolant system after engine preservation with
emulsion-type preservatives, we recommend to use Glysacorr P 113 as preservation liquid.
Preservation of cooling system, lubrication system and fuel system, if the coolant can be left in the system
• Clean engine if necessary.
• Drain engine oil.
• Fill with initial operation corrosion-inhibiting oil in accordance with Chapter 8 up to the “Min” mark at least
• Fill the fuel system completely with diesel fuel
• When using a corrosion inhibiting antifreeze, leave it in the system; otherwise, drain coolant and fill the
system in accordance with Chapter 8 with approved corrosion-inhibiting antifreeze, if freezing temperatures
are expected. If there is no risk of frost, the customer’s coolant can be left in the system.
• Carry out the engine preservation run for approx. 10 mins at increased idling speed; the
coolant must reach at least operating temperature.
• Stop the engine
• Leave the engine coolant in the system

emulsion-type preservatives, we recommend to use Glysacorr P 113 as preservation liquid.
Represervation is not required if the engine is completely filled with coolant after the preservation run.
If there is danger of frost, fill up with antifreeze (40%)!
Preservation of combustion chamber
• Clean engine if necessary.
• Fill with initial operation corrosion-inhibiting oil up to the “Min” mark at least.
• Remove sealed covers from combustion-air inlet and exhaust outlet.
• Clear access to the charge-air pipe. This may require removal of the flame-start canisters,
sensors, covers or pipes. Access to the charge-air pipe must be available after the intercooler,
after the pressure fine filter / air filter and after the turbocharger.
• Bar warm engine with starting equipment. The engine must not respond. This requires actuation of the
stop lever in the case of mechanical governors. With electronic governors, switch off the power supply
and turn the engine over either with the emergency start or another suitable method.
• While the engine is turning, fill with initial operation corrosion inhibitor oil in accordance with Chapter 8 for
approx. 15 seconds with a fine atomizer spray gun into the charge air manifold openings.
• Drain initial operation corrosion inhibitor oil.
• Seal off the combustion air intake and exhaust outlet openings against moisture / humidity once again.
• Re-seal the openings to the charge-air manifolds.

In addition to the preservation steps, the following measures must still be carried out:
in installed condition:
• Seal following openings tight against moisture:
• Cooling-air inlet
• Combustion-air inlet (close the emergency air shutoff flaps if they are provided).
• Exhaust outlet
with engine removed:
• Seal following openings tight against moisture:
• Cooling-air inlet
• Combustion-air inlet (close the emergency air shutoff flaps if they are provided).
• Exhaust outlet
• Electrical plug connectors
• Crankcase vent (with venting to atmosphere)
• Coat or spray non-painted parts with corrosion inhibitor for external preservation
in accordance with Chapter 8.
• Seal check sheet in a clear plastic envelope and attach to engine at a clearly visible location.
• Complete the check sheet after completion of preservation work.
• Seal supply and drain lines of:
• Coolant
• Fuel
• Engine oil
Represerving diesel and gas engines
The represervation procedure is identical with the preservation procedure for diesel and gas engines
in the field with out-of-service periods of > 3 months. (→ Page 86)
Represervation of preserved engines must be carried out depending on the storage conditions
at the represervation intervals specified in Chapter 9.
The following rules apply to engines with filled cooling, lube oil and fuel systems:
• Lube oil and fuel systems filled:
– Represerve after 6-12 months, depending on the storage conditions
• Cooling systems filled with corrosion-inhibiting antifreeze:
– Change coolant after 3 years, referenced to the data of manufacture of the product
• Cooling systems filled with water-soluble corrosion inhibitor:
– Renew coolant after 2 years, referenced to the date of manufacture of the product
• Cooling systems filled with emulsifiable corrosion inhibitor oil:
– Renew coolant after 6 years, referenced to the date of manufacture of the product
:
TIM ID: 0000010139 – 007
Depreserving diesel and gas engines before putting into service
Before return to service, the engine must be depreserved. The following steps must be carried out:
• Clean engine if necessary.
• Remove all sealing covers
• Drain off remaining corrosion-inhibiting oil.
• Fit new oil filters (inserts) (not applicable for new deliveries; after 1 year at latest).
• Only for diesel engines:
• Fit new oil filters (inserts) (not applicable for new deliveries; after 1 year at latest).
• Fill up with engine oil.
• Bar engine manually.
• Prepare engine for operation.

Preservation specifications
• Fill with or renew coolant
Depreservation is not required on installed field engines with out-of-service periods up to 3 months.
Only the covers must be removed (→ Page 84).
Note on commissioning:
Put engine into operation according to the engine documentation.
Special packing
Special packing must be carried out for engines which are to be taken out of service for more than 36 months. For
engines to be stored outdoors or to be transported by sea or in polar or tropical regions, special packing should be
carried out immediately after preservation, see Sections (→ Page 84)and (→ Page 86). Likewise, special packing is
also usually advisable for protecting the engine against corrosion during shorter periods of storage .
Coolant and preservative oil must be drained completely for special packing.
The following types of special packing are available:
• Envelopes of bonded-layer material (e.g. aluminum bonded-layers).
• Hygroscopic (water-absorbing) materials (e.g. silica gel).
The engine is welded into a foil with limited water-vapor permeability, the enclosed air is then extracted by
means of a vacuum-cleaner, and is dried to the desired relative humidity with desiccant. Desiccant is used
to achieve a specific relative humidity inside the foil envelope. The climatic packing of bonded-layer material
hinders the formation of condensed water on the metal surface and resulting corrosion.
Maintenance intervals
• Check the humidity indicator every 3 to 4 months (→ Page 90).
• In cases of storage for more than 10 years (from date of manufacture on identification plate) but before putting
into service, all rubber components (sleeves, hose lines, etc.) on the engine must be replaced.
• Storage beyond 20 years (as of year of manufacture on nameplate) but before commissioning, all
elastomer components must be replaced as part of a major engine overhaul.
Note:
When storing the engine in special packing (with laminated-aluminum layers), note that the elastomers
have a limited life. The calculation of the total service life of the elastomers begins with either the year of
manufacture or last engine overhaul (see nameplate). Based on current knowledge, elastomer components
made of fluorocarbon rubber (e.g. O-rings) have a total service life of about 20 years and those made
of other rubber materials (hoses) have a total service life of about 10 years.
A long storage period shortens the time limit for an engine’s major overhaul (TBO) because of
the limited total service life of the elastomers. MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH recommends that
engines should not be stored for more than 10 years.
General information on special packing
TIM ID: 0000010139 – 007
Envelopes of laminated material
The envelopes consist of tightly-bonded layers of aluminum composite foil which has
limited permeability to water vapor and gas.
The material used by MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH is composed laminated aluminium foil made of
polyethylene – aluminum and polyester, with the following properties:
• Temperature range for applications from +70 °C to –50 °C.
• Water vapor permeability (WVP): 0.1 g/m² per day at 38 °C and 80% relative humidity
(compared with PVC soft foil: WVP 6 g/m² per day)

Desiccant
Desiccant, mostly silica gel, is the name usually given to water-absorbing materials as used in the
special packing. The desiccant is in packs of highly-permeable (for water vapor) and strong material
(e.g. natron crepe paper) which are placed in the transport package.
Desiccant pack
The following drying-agent packs are used for transport packing:
• MTU-No. 49542 desiccant 125 g = 4 units
• MTU No. 49543 desiccant 259 g = 8 units
• MTU-No. 49544 desiccant 500 g = 16 units
• MTU No. 49545 desiccant 1000 g = 32 units
Calculation of required desiccant
The amount of units placed in the special packing depends on the climatic conditions and type of storage at
the place of destination. The minimum amount of units to be used is calculated as follows:

Procedure
1. Measure surface A of the laminated aluminum foil for the packing.
2. Weigh the packing material (e.g. wood, corrugated cardboard, etc.) necessary to support
and protect the engine within the special packing envelope.
3. Determine which climatic zone(s) the protected engine will be transported through and finally stored in.
4. Calculate the required desiccant (DU).

Result: Sufficient protection of the engine requires 230 desiccant units (DU).
Humidity indicator
Humidity indicators can be inserted into the foil envelope to show the saturation level of the desiccant. The
indicators signalize by changing color that the specified level of relative humidity has been exceeded. An increase
in relative humidity e.g. due to leaks or damage, presents a risk of corrosion for the engine.
A viewing window with a humidity indicator is screwed into the laminated aluminum foil at a point
as far away as possible from the desiccant. It is thus possible to check the relative humidity
inside the foil envelope and / or to verify any changes.
The humidity must be checked regularly every 3 to 4 months.

Preparation for special packing
Provided that the engine is not new or has not undergone a major overhaul carried out by MTU (and has
already been preserved ), preservation (→ Page 84) and (→ Page 86) must be carried out before special
packing takes place. Coolant and preservation oil must be completely drained.
Transportation locking device
Check whether a transportation locking device is required (see engine documentation or consult MTU
Friedrichshafen GmbH). Block crankshaft and engine mounts as specified in the engine documentation.

Cushioning of engine edges and corners
Engine edges and corners, which could damage
the laminated aluminum foil, must be cushioned
using foam foil or foam rubber.
Location of desiccant units
Place the calculated amount of desiccant units
(see calculation example for desiccant units)
inside the envelope. The desiccant units must be
arranged in the upper third of the envelope and
attached to the engine, hanging free wherever
possible. Ensure that the desiccant units are
attached (with string, adhesive tape or other
suitable material) so that no damage can be
caused to the desiccant units, the engine or the
laminated aluminum foil.
TIM ID: 0000010139 – 007
Note:

aluminum laminate foils to seal the aluminum
laminate envelope (→ Page 98).
TIM ID: 0000010139 – 007
Prior to final sealing of the aluminum laminate
envelope, use a vacuum pump (e.g. vacuum
cleaner) to extract the entrapped air.
A001061/34E

Preservation specifications
97
As a consequence of the resulting pressure drop,
the envelope must shrink into light contact with
the engine. Excessively heavy contact must be
avoided as friction damage could result during
transportation.
Note:
When the air is extracted, the air humidity is eliminated, thus ensuring a favorably low initial level of
moisture in the packaging. Extraction of the air also verifies that the envelope is free of leaks. If the
envelope is not adequately sealed, it will re-expand within 30 minutes.
A leak can be found by pressurizing the envelope and repaired by welding.
Special packing checks
Humidity check
Humidity within the envelope must be checked regularly every 3 – 4 months (→ Page 90). The results of the
check must be entered on the monitoring sheet (→ Page 99). If the engine is still under warranty, return the
monitoring sheet (→ Page 99) to MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH after putting the engine into service.
Attention!
When checking the special packing, ensure that the laminated aluminum foil is not damaged, exercise
great care when opening the transportation box (if provided).
The condition of the laminated aluminum foil is to be checked minutely at every customs, stock or storage check.
Protection against corrosion is not guaranteed if the laminated aluminum composite foil is damaged.
Desiccant replacement
Open the upper section of the envelope and remove the old desiccant. Place the same amount of fresh desiccant in
the upper section of the envelope (→ Page 95). Re-weld the envelope and extract the air (→ Page 96).
TIM ID: 0000010139 – 007
Repair of special packing
If the laminated aluminum foil is damaged, the damaged area can be cut out and a new section welded into
position. If repairs have to be carried out, the envelope must be stocked with fresh desiccant (→ Page 95) and
the air must be extracted again (→ Page 96). Incorrect repair, e.g. using adhesive tape, is not permissible,
as the partial vacuum in the envelope cannot be maintained. In order to ensure correct repair, the specified
packing materials (→ Page 90) and the manual welding unit (→ Page 98) must be used.

Flushing and cleaning specifications for engine
coolant circuits
General information
These cleaning specifications are for the engine coolant circuits in MTU diesel engines and gas engines.
In the course of time, sludge deposits from aging coolant additives can accumulate in the coolant circuits. Reduced
cooling capacity, clogged vent lines and drain points and dirty coolant level sight-glasses can result.
Below-standard water quality or incorrect coolant preparation can also heavily contaminate the system.
If such conditions occur, the coolant circuit is to be flushed out with fresh water, repeatedly if necessary.
If these flushing sequences are insufficient or if the system is too heavily contaminated, the
coolant circuit and all affected parts must be cleaned.
Only clean, fresh water (no river or sea water) must be used for flushing.
Only MTU-approved or corresponding products at the specified concentrations may be used for
cleaning. The specified cleaning procedure is to be complied with.
Immediately after flushing or cleaning, fill the coolant circuits with treated engine coolant as stipulated
in the current MTU Fluids and Lubricants Specifications A001061 (→ Page 45).
Fluids and lubricants (e.g. treated engine coolant), used flushing water, cleaning agents and cleaning solutions can be
hazardous materials. Certain regulations must be obeyed when handling, storing and disposing of these substances.
These regulations are contained in the manufacturer’s instructions, legal requirements and technical guidelines
valid in the individual countries. Considerable differences can apply from country to country so that no generally
valid statement on the applicable regulations for fluids and lubricants etc. can be made in this publication.
Users of the products named in these specifications are therefore obliged to inform themselves of
the locally valid regulations. MTU accepts no responsibility whatsoever for improper or illegal use
of the fluids and lubricants / cleaning agents which it has approved.

Cleaning components
For further information, see Operating Instructions for engine in question.
Cleaning components
Remove, disassemble and clean components that are exposed to heavy sludge deposits e.g. expansion
tanks, preheating units, heat exchangers (coolant cooler, oil heat-exchanger, intercooler, charge-air
preheater, fuel preheater etc.) and lower sections of pipework.
Before cleaning, examine degree of contamination on water sides.
If greasy lime deposits are found, first degrease the water side.
Stubborn deposits caused by oil mist in intercoolers can be removed with Kluthe Hakutex 60.
Remove hard lime deposits with a decalcifying product.
In the event of stubborn lime deposits, a 10% inhibited hydrochloric solution may have to be used.
Dissolve deposits on and in heat-exchanger elements in a heated cleaning bath.
Use only approved detergents in the permissible concentration.
Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when preparing cleaning baths!
• Deposits on the oil side can also be dissolved in a kerosene bath.
• The period spent in the cleaning bath depends on the type and degree of contamination,
as well as the temperature and activity of the bath.
Clean individual components such as housings, covers, pipes, sight glasses, heat-exchanger elements
and similar with superheated steam, a nylon brush (soft) and a powerful water jet.
In order to avoid damage:
• Do not use hard or sharp-edged tools (steel brushes, scrapers etc.) (oxide protective layer)
• Do not set the water-jet pressure too high (damage, e.g. to cooling fins)
After cleaning, blow through the heat exchanger elements with low-pressure steam in the direction opposite to
operational flow, rinse with clear water (until pH-value difference is < 1) and blow dry with compressed or hot air.
Check that all components are in perfect condition, repair or replace as necessary.
Flush oil and engine coolant sides of heat-exchanger elements with corrosion-inhibiting oil.
• This step may be omitted if the heat exchanger is installed and taken into service immediately after cleaning.
After reinstalling all components, flush engine-coolant system once.
Check coolant system for leaks during initial operation of engine.
For further information, see the Maintenance Manual for the engine in question.
TIM ID: 0000010140 – 006
Coolant circuits contaminated with bacteria, fungi or yeast
System cleaning
The system cleaner must flow a sufficiently long time through the complete cooling system
to ensure effective cleaning and disinfection.
Therefore, the predefined amount of the approved system cleaner must be added to the contaminated coolant in the
system. Use a circulating pump to provide continuous mixture flow through the coolant system for at least 24 hours.

After draining the coolant/system cleaner mixture, the coolant circuit must be flushed with fresh
water as long as visible contamination can be detected and until the flush water has the ph-value
of the fresh water (maximum deviation of the ph-values: <1).
