Good morning

I attached the flow chart below for you to view.

Roy

SPN 5357/FMI 16
Description Fuel Quantity High Detected
Monitored Parameter Injector Quantity
Typical Enabling Conditions Steady State Drive & No Regen
Monitor Sequence None
Execution Frequency Continuous when enabling conditions met
Typical Duration 2 Minutes
Dash Lamps MIL, CEL
Engine Reaction Derate 25%
Verification Steady Engine RPM 1400 - 1500 (2 minute)

  1. Monitor the intake manifold temperature; is the intake manifold temperature reading greater than 65°C (150°F)?
  1. Compare intake manifold pressure to atmospheric (Baro) pressure. Is the intake manifold pressure within 0.4 psi of Baro pressure?
  1. Remove the EGR delta P sensor from the mounting pad; leave electrical harness connected.
  2. Is the EGR delta P voltage between 0.55 and 0.83 volts?

Leak check the Charge Air Cooler (CAC);

it's located on the cross pipe in front of the engine. It gets a lot of crud because the exhaust gasses get cooled by the EGR and then you get a deposition of carbon that winds up on all the surfaces. You can use carburetor cleaner to loosen and dissolve the crud a little.

ALSO! The pigtail on the delta P sensor is VERY VERY finicky. Pay close attention if there is any pin fretting. You'll notice how the pigtail hangs out right there which causes the whole thing to vibrate excessively and move whichever way. This can, also, lead to a poor connection to the sensor itself because the female pins get worn out very easily--even tho the sensor itself might be good!

The 16 and 18 are similar.

Below is the 18 as well.

Roy

SPN 5357

FMI 18

Fuel quantity low detected

if any other fault codes are active, fix those first

Probable causes:

1) failed intake manifold temperature sensor
2) Intake manifold temperature sensor connector/harness
3) EGR delta P sensor
4) EGR delta P sensor connector/harness
5) EGR system leaks (Check for soot)
6) Remove the DPF and check for blockage or contamination (Coolant, fuel, oil, etc...)
7) Check the entire exhaust system (including the EGR) for leaks
8) Perform stationary regen
