DD15 SPN 175/FMI 14 Troubleshooting

SPN 175/FMI 14

This diagnosis is typically engine oil temperature out of range (drifted low/high).‪

Note: When diagnosing rationality erratic data faults (FMI 14) always refer to SILs or SIBs or any known issues first.

Check as follows:‪

  1. Check engine oil level. Add oil if needed and recheck for fault codes. If SPN 175/FMI 14 is still active, go to the next step.
  2. Disconnect the Engine Oil Temperature Sensor.
  3. Inspect the Engine Oil Temperature Sensor for bent, spread or corroded pins. If pin damage is found, repair as necessary or replace the sensor. Refer to “35.3.1 Verify Repairs” .

Verify Repairs

Verify repairs as follows:‪

  1. Turn ignition OFF.
  2. Reconnect any electrical connections that were disconnected to perform the diagnosis.
  3. Clear codes with DDDL 7.0 or latest version.
    To avoid injury from inhaling engine exhaust, always operate the engine in a well-ventilated area. Engine exhaust is toxic.‪
  4. Start and bring engine up to operating temperature (over 140°F/60°C).
  5. Verify operation is satisfactory and no warning lamps illuminate. If warning lamps illuminate, troubleshoot the codes.
