PERSONAL INJURY

To avoid injury before starting and running the engine, ensure the vehicle is parked on a level surface, parking brake is set, and the wheels are blocked.‪

  1. Start and vary engine speed between 1800-2100 rpm.
  2. Measure engine oil pressure.
    1. If the oil pressure is 241 kPa (35 psi) or more, no further troubleshooting is required. Shut down the engine.
    2. If the oil pressure at rated speed is less than 241 kPa (35 psi), shut down the engine. Check lubricating oil viscosity; refer to "15.2 Improper Lubricating Oil Viscosity" .
