Component Location

The oil filter is located on the exhaust side of the engine, and the oil fill port varies by application. Refer to Procedure 100-002 (Engine Diagrams) in Section E for a detailed component location for the oil filter and refer to the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) manual for the location of the oil fill port.

Conditions for Running the Diagnostics

Conditions for Setting the Fault Codes

The ECM detects that based on the programmable setting in the Maintenance Monitor feature, the engine oil and filter needs to be changed.

  • The ECM illuminates the amber CHECK ENGINE light immediately when the maintenance condition is exceeded.

Conditions for Clearing the Fault Code

The ECM will turn off the amber CHECK ENGINE light immediately after the Maintenance Monitor feature has been reset using INSITE™ electronic service tool.
