NOTE: Operating your engine when the oil level is
above the FULL (MAX) mark could cause
your crankshaft to dip into the oil. If this
happens, the air bubbles created from the
crankshaft dipping into the oil will reduce the
lubricating characteristics of your oil and
could result in the loss of power.
If the dipstick does not have a FULL (MAX) mark, refer
to calibrating the oil level gauge by consulting your
Caterpillar dealer before operating the engine.
Remove the oil filler cap and add oil if necessary.
The minimum capacity (ADD oil mark) is 5.6 liter
(5.9 U.S. quart) for the 3054 engine. See Refill
Capacities and Lubricant Specifications for the
size of your engine crankcase and recommended
oil to use.
NOTE: Remote mounted or auxiliary oil filters will
require additional oil than what the Refill
Capacities chart states. For all information
pertaining to auxiliary oil filters, refer to the
OEM filter manufacturers instructions.
Hydraulic Oil System
Check Charge Pressure Indicator
Verify the hydraulic charge pressure. With the engine
running at HIGH IDLE, observe the charge pressure
indicator. If the indicator light is on and the horn blows,
check the indicator on the hydraulic filter. If the indicator
is in the red zone, replace the filter. Refer to Hydraulic
Oil System, Every 1000 Service Hours or 12 Months.
If the charge pressure indicator is on and the
indicator on the filter is NOT in the red zone, the
cause for low charge pressure must be determined.
Contact your Caterpillar dealer.
