Section 2.35
Fuel Temperature Sensor

The Series 60 diesel engine Fuel Temperature Sensor (FTS) is installed into the secondary fuel filter. See Figure "Fuel Temperature Sensor Location (Series 60 Diesel Engine)" . The FTS sends an electrical signal to the ECM indicating fuel inlet temperature. The ECM uses this information to calculate fuel consumption.‪

Section 2.35.1
Replacement of Fuel Temperature Sensor

The FTS is non-serviceable and should be replaced as a unit. No adjustment is required.‪

Section 2.35.2
Removal of Fuel Temperature Sensor

Remove the FTS as follows:‪

  1. Disengage the locking tang on the two-wire connector. Grasp the body of the connector and gently pull it from the socket.
  2. Use the appropriate wrench on the hex portion of the sensor and unscrew it from the fitting.

Section 2.35.3
Installation of Fuel Temperature Sensor

Install the FTS as follows:‪

NOTICE:

The Fuel Temperature Sensor is an electrical device. Use care in the installation process or damage may occur.‪

  1. Use Loctite® Pipe sealer with Teflon PT-7260 (or equivalent) on all but the first two threads of the FTS to prevent leaks.
  2. Screw the FTS into the fitting or housing.
  3. Engage locking tang.
  4. Turn the ignition to the ON position. Observe the DDR for any diagnostic code(s). If any code(s) other than code 25 is logged, refer to the Detroit Diesel Single ECM Troubleshooting Manual (6SE497).
