Oil Cooling System
Oil cooling system malfunctioning.
Low engine oil pressure, engine oil temperature normal. Do steps 1 thru 4.
High engine oil pressure, engine oil temperature normal. Do steps 1 thru 5.
Engine oil consumption excessive.
Do step 6.
High engine oil temperature. Do steps 7 thru 11.
Check to see that proper grade of oil for prevailing temperature is used in engine. If improper grade
was used, refill with proper grade of oil (refer to TM 9-2350-256-10).
Check main engine crank case for proper oil level. Refer to TM 9-2350-256-10 instructions on
checking engine oil level. Check that oil is not diluted. Drain and refill if oil is diluted (refer to TM
Remove left- and center-front air inlet grilles (see WP 0342 00) and open side air inlet grille doors.
Inspect oil lines for evidence of leaking. Tighten or replace any lines or connections that are leaking.
Check oil drain valve plug (see WP 0104 00). If valve plug is loose, tighten and recheck oil pressure. If
oil pressure is low, do to step 4. If oil pressure is high, go to step 5.
Be sure to use the proper pressure gage for the pressure range to be tested.
Remove left- and center-front air inlet grilles (see WP 0342 00) if they have not already been removed.
Remove main engine oil pressure switch (see WP 0171 00) and install pressure gage (item 156, WP
0488 00). If pressure gage reads 4070 psi (276483 kPa) at 2400 rpm and engine oil pressure gage
