SERIES 60 DEFECTIVE PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE

To determine if a defective pressure relief valve is causing low oil pressure, perform the following steps: ‪

  1. Remove the pressure relief valve; refer to section .
  2. Inspect the oil pressure relief valve; refer to section .
    1. If the relief valve moves freely in the valve body, reinstall the oil pressure relief valve; refer to section . Check the pickup tube and screen assembly for defects, refer to section .
    2. If the relief valve will not move freely in the valve body, refer to section .

Pressure Relief Valve Repair

Perform the following steps to repair the pressure relief valve: ‪

  1. Disassemble the pressure relief valve and replace damaged components; refer to section .
  2. Assemble and install the pressure regulator valve; refer to section .
  3. Verify repair of the regulator valve; refer to section .
Test Engine with Repaired Relief Valve

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

  1. Install the Diagnostic Data Reader to the vehicles Display Data Line Adaptor, see Figure 24089 ; refer to OEM guidelines.
  2. Start and run engine speed at 1800 r/min.
  3. Visually examine the DDR for oil pressure reading.
    1. If the DDR indicates 241 kPa (35 lb/in.2 ), or more at 1800 r/min, shut down the engine and disconnect the DDR. No further troubleshooting is required.
    2. If the DDR indicates less than 241 kPa (35 lb/in.2 ), at 1800 r/min, shut down the engine and disconnect the DDR, check pickup tube and screen assembly; refer to section .
