To determine if an overfilled crankcase is causing excessive oil consumption, perform the following:
- Ensure vehicle is parked on level ground.
- Perform a universal dipstick calibration check; refer to "3.8 Oil Level Dipstick Assembly"
- If the calibration check indicates that the oil level is off by more than 2 mm (0.079 in.), contact your Detroit Diesel regional support office.
- Check for oil leaks; refer to "19.2 External Oil Leaks" .
