277B engine oil light comes on after machine warms up.

Customer Question
277B engine oil light...

277B engine oil light comes on after machine warms up . Changed the oil and the filter twice and still having same issue. Any thoughts?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Skid Steer 277B *CAT0277BVMDH01833*

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just changed the filter. Light came back on after that so changed the filter and the oil and light still coming on

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

A mechanic here told us to flush the engine with diesel and wondering if this is a bad idea.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

OK, thanks

Hi, I’m Wayne.

I will be assisting you with this issue today.

DO NOT FLUSH THE ENGINE WITH DIESEL FUEL

Vey Bad Idea, hard on all the bearings

What you are describing is the oil pressure sensor is failing

I suggest replacing that

I hope this helps you

Is it behind the oil filter or in the line between the pump and filter?
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 3 months ago

Hi

It can be in either place

but normally in the block itself
