Feb 23, 2. What do you mean bad hole. I'm having the same problem I'm already in the hole and still have the same problem low oil pressure at operating temp. Loyds77Feb 23, Feb 23, 3. Low oil pressure is rarely a cheap fix. The engines don't have test ports all over to tell where the loss is. Can be hard to pin point the root cause.
HeavydFeb 23, Loyds77 Thanks this. Feb 23, 4. Pablo-UAFeb 23, Feb 23, 5. Already had a oil pump replaced and bearings checked. I had a leaking injector also replace. Drove the truck 80 miles right back to low oil pressure at a idleruns just above the red line at idle and about 30 psi at 65 mph.

Feb 23, 6. A bad cylinder kit will not cause an oil preasure problem, Period. Any decent Mechanic will look up at the liners, will see the contaninates on the oil drain plug. When they change the main and Rod bearrings, why have someone check them when they are cheap, checking the oil pump being sure the "O" rings are good on the inlet and outlet.
Being sure the sensor is good and acurate. That makes sence. Just a thought!Quick Links. See also: Service Manual. Table of Contents. To avoid personal injury and ensure long engine service life, always heed these instructions.

Store cylinders in a cool dry area.One method for calculating the amount of mass flow of exhaust gas recirculation EGR in a diesel engine is to measure the differential pressure across a mechanical device. Certain of these devices will generate a differential pressure that is proportional to the volumetric flow in volume per unit of timesuch as a verturi. By measuring the temperature and pressure of this flow, this volumetric flow can be converted to a mass flow.
This is a sensor that measures the differential pressure across this device and provides a voltage signal that is proportional to this pressure. Output drift is the situation where the output of the sensor deviates from its calibrated value. Often the drift over the entire sensor calibration range can be tracked by recording the amount of sensor error with no pressure applied.
In addition, if this error is large enough it can be determined that the sensor is defective. The present invention relates to a method to auto calibrate an exhaust gas recirculation differential pressure sensor to correct for sensor output drift. A method for controlling an internal combustion engine having a variable geometry turbocharger VGT and an exhaust gas recirculation EGR system in the face of sensor failures and mechanical faults includes generating accurate substitute values for use by the engine control logic when EGR and VGT system-related sensors are diagnosed as having failed during operation, and maintaining controlled performance of the VGT system in the face of sensor failures or mechanical faults associated with the EGR or VGT system.
A closed-loop actuator control system includes a single PI controller for controlling one or more actuators to minimize an error between an engine operating parameter value and a reference parameter value.
In multiple actuator systems, the control system of the present invention is operable to drive one actuator to its upper limit before transferring control to the next actuator. The proportional gain block of the PI controller preferably includes a bumpless gain feature operable to limit the rate of change of the proportional gain to thereby provide smooth gain scheduling.
A feed forward block may optionally be included that preferably includes the bumpless gain feature. The actuator control system further includes anti-windup logic operable to disable the PI integrator if the actuator drive signal is upper or lower limit bounded and the error signal is greater or less than zero respectively, thereby creating dynamic saturation of the PI integrator. An exhaust gas recirculation EGR system for an engine with a variable geometry turbocharger 18 incorporates a master rotary electric actuator REA 50 with a microprocessor controller 53 receiving condition signals 4648 a - e from sensors 48 associated with the turbocharger and the engine control unit ECU 54 and positioning the turbine inlet nozzle 44 geometry of the turbocharger in response to a predetermined matrix of the condition signals.
The processing unit provides an actual position signal to the controller which responds with a desired position signal based on the predetermined condition signal matrix. The present invention is directed to a method for operating an electronic controlled internal combustion engine with an electronic control unit ECU having at least nonvolatile memory and tables resident therein to automatically recalibrate an exhaust gas recirculation EGR differential pressure sensor.
The method includes determining whether a drive-cycle is completed; simultaneously determining engine status, EGR differential pressure sensor status, engine coolant temperature; determining actual zero offset by observing EGR differential pressure sensor output; determining whether actual zero offset is within acceptable limits; and storing the actual zero offset in nonvolatile memory.
The method may also optionally include the step of determining whether engine shut down protection and idle shut down programs are operating. In addition, there is no auto calibration of the EGR differential pressure sensor, a fault is logged, actuating a warning alert and storing a nominal zero offset in nonvolatile memory when said actual zero offset is outside predetermined calibratable acceptable limits.
Moreover, there is no auto calibration of said EGR differential pressure sensor if at least one of EGR differential pressure sensor is not enabled or is fixed, engine speed is not zero, engine speed has not gone from non zero to zero, the engine has not been running longer than a preset time, engine protection shutdown is operating or engine idle shutdown is operating. The drive cycle is determined by an ignition stature going from on to off. The engine status includes simultaneously determining whether said engine has run a predetermined calibratable period of time; whether engine speed has gone from non zero to zero, and whether engine speed remains zero for a predetermined calibratable period of time.
In practice, the EGR differential pressure sensor auto calibration occurs if sensor deficit is repeatable after a predetermined number of checks. The method further includes setting a counter in said ECU for debouncing EGR leak fault until said faults occur for a predetermined number of times. Preferably, auto calibrating the EGR differential pressure sensor occurs at said drive cycle end. The method may also include performing auto calibration of said EGR differential pressure sensor when engine ignition is on if auto calibration is enabled, auto calibration at ignition off is disabled, engine speed is zero, coolant temperature is greater than an auto calibrated minimum coolant temperature and said EGR differential pressure sensor is not failed.
The method may further include logging a fault that remains active during current and subsequent drive cycles until a successful auto calibration of said EGR differential Pressure Sensor occurs. The method may further include auto calibrating said EGR Differential Pressure Sensor in response to a command from a service tool when said ignition is on, a command is reviewed by the ECU from a service tool to an auto calibrate said EGR differential pressure sensor engine speed is zero and said EGR differential pressure sensor has not failed.Do you have a Series 60 engine from Detroit?
For the most part, it probably runs great for you. This electronically controlled engine has a favorable history, shared between all three versions, and despite having been out of production for years now, it remains a popular choice for many operators. Even though this engine has been relied on by many for years, it still has its share of issues, like any other would. Below we explore some of the common issues and complaints surrounding the Detroit Series 60 engines and their possible causes.
Detroit Diesel 60 Operator's Manual
This is by no means an exhaustive list of all the problems you could experience, but they are good things to watch out for if you find that your engine isn't working the way it used to. We've briefly discussed some of these problems in our Series 60 spotlightbut we'll dive into them a bit more fully here.
It Still Runs also mentions a few of these issues. Cold starts, aptly named for starting your engine in cold temperatures, have given Series 60 engines trouble.
They can lose their prime and not start properly. Using a starting fluid should help combat this issue, and you shouldn't have any other problems from it once the engine is running. These two sensors should be replaced at the same time to maintain proper operation. This particular issue affects Series 60 engines built before For some reason, there was a defect in some of the wrist pins that led to the separating of the piston pin and crown.
This separation allowed the connecting rod to disconnect as well, and one of the loose components would then damage the engine block, often by creating a hole through it. This issue did not affect all pre Series 60 engines, but it was a problem that occurred and could cause catastrophic engine failure. As with most engines, it's a good idea to keep an eye on your cooling system. Overheating is the cause of many major issues with diesel engines, so maintaining this system can help with many preventable issues.
This problem is also not the most common, and affects mainly those with certain kinds of aftermarket engine brakes installed. These brakes could require different programming than what is standard on the Series 60, and the disconnect could cause a loss of throttle.
If this is not the issue and you're still experiencing throttle issues, you'll probably want to take a look at your TPS throttle position sensor. This sensor works with the electronic control system in drive-by-wire applications like the Series 60 engines, allowing for the electronic control to occur.
If there's an issue with your throttle, that's a good place to start. Bearing problems, particularly spun bearings, are typically caused on older Series 60 by low oil pressure at idle. A spun bearing occurs when there is a lack of lubrication causing overheating. The bearing can eventually seize, creating even more problems.I shut engine down and 5 seconds later i start up the engine again. The lights turn off and the temperature gauge goes back fast from degrees to Then every thing is normal.
The overheating has happened a few times in the past days. I think it is electrical or sensor problem. Is this correct? I have anti freeze to max line on the tank. What is the problem? If your fan is working then I would say that it is your thermostats. You should be able to here your fan come on. Try and blow out your air to air and radiator with a blow gun, from the engine side out. I just remebered one that I had that we put thermostats in and blew out the radiator, put a head on because the injector cups were leaking, and still overheated, and found the air compressor was aerating and getting air pockets in it, like the other guy said.
I hope some of this helped. The problem is your egr is telling your ecm to cut or reduce turbo boost. This causes no power on any hill or uphill incline, which in turn causes your engine to overheat because it is working too hard. Trending News.
