Customer Question

I have a six cummins 600 hp motor . It's a2000. The problem I'm having is I changed the oil and after 3 days the oil pressure went low and red engine light came on . I changed the oil filter and it was fine but now after a week of running its doing the same thing . Going to change oil filter again but why is it plugging up oil filter

Your timing is off and needs to be reset by static timing. Call cummins to have this done. It is a common issue

Hi, what is your engine serial number and the actual oil pressure you are getting? Inspect the filter internally and let me know if any metal/debris is found.

Hi Damon, Did you get this resolved? Are there any traces of metal/debris in your oil filter if you cut it open for sampling?
