Customer Question
Hi I have a...

Hi I have a diesel motor running my fire pump in a commercial office building. When doing my prestart check I noticed the oil heater not to be warm. Called a tech to come look and he confirmed it to be bad. My question is do I need to replace this now or can it wait until the weather cools. I am in Houston Texas.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

I do not have that information with me now. It is approximately 30 years old if that helps.
