  2. Start and run the engine.
  3. Check for a code that indicates high coolant temperature that could be a cause of high fuel temperature.
    1. If there is a code for high coolant temperature, refer to "11.1 Improper Engine Coolant Level" .
    2. If there is not a code for high coolant temperature, go to the next step.
  4. Run the engine at idle with a no-load for approximately 5 minutes, allowing the engine coolant to reach normal operating range, 88-96°C (190-210°F).
    1. If the return fuel temperature is less than or equal to 60°C (140°F), check for improper injector calibration setting; refer to "9.4 Improper Injector Calibration Setting" .
    2. If the return fuel temperature is greater than 60°C (140°F), remove and replace the fuel filter; refer to the EPA07 DD15 Workshop Manual (DDC-SVC-MAN-0002), fuel system chapter.
