Section 2.7.1.1
Test Engine with Repaired Oil Pressure Regulator Valve

Perform the following steps to determine if repaired oil pressure regulator valve resolved low oil pressure: ‪

  1. Connect to DDDL 7.0.
  2. Start and run engine speed at 1800 rpm.
  3. Visually examine DDDL 7.0 for oil pressure reading.
    1. If DDDL 7.0 indicates 241 kPa (35 psi) or more at 1800 rpm, shut down the engine and disconnect DDDL 7.0. No further troubleshooting is required.
    2. If DDDL 7.0 indicates less than 241 kPa (35 psi) at 1800 rpm, shut down the engine and disconnect DDDL 7.0; check bypass valve; refer to "2.8 Defective Bypass Valve" .
