Section 2.6
Restricted Oil Cooler

To determine if a restricted oil cooler is causing low oil pressure, perform the following steps:‪

  1. Connect to DDDL 7.0.
  2. Start and run the engine at 1800 rpm.
  3. Run the engine at 1800 rpm 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 DDDL 7.0 is indicating a lubricating oil temperature less than or equal to 110°C (230°F). Shut down the engine, disconnect DDDL 7.0, and check pressure regulator valve; refer to "2.7 Nonfunctional or Sticking Oil Pressure Regulator Valve" .
