Oil Pressure and Temperature Sensor Installation

Install the oil pressure and temperature sensor as follows: ‪

  1. Position the oil pressure/temperature sensor and install the mounting screws. Tighten the fasteners 10 Nm (7 lbft).
  2. Connect the wiring harness at the oil temperature sensor.
  3. Using a new O-ring (if necessary), install the oil filter cap. Tighten the nut 25 Nm (18 lbft).

    PERSONAL INJURY

    Diesel engine exhaust and some of its constituents are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and other reproductive harm.

    • Always start and operate an engine in a well ventilated area.
    • If operating an engine in an enclosed area, vent the exhaust to the outside.
    • Do not modify or tamper with the exhaust system or emission control system.
  4. Start the engine. Check the gauge for the correct oil pressure; check the lubrication system for leaks.
  5. Check and add engine oil as needed.
