Re: Volvo D3 oil pressure

Hello Paul and keep us posted on what you discover. Be sure to get a spectrographic test as it will tell precisely, in parts per million/ppm, of everything in the oil other than the oil itself. Most of the chemical based tests just indicate the presence of wear elements but not the proportions.

 

Good luck with it all, Joel

Joel,

 

Thanks for this advice. About the pressure, he measured 30psi when it should have been 80. I’ll wait for opinion from the other engineer looking into this. He should also be able to change the oil and get an analysis done.

 

Cheers,

Paul
