Caterpillar D3K, D4K and D5K: Maintenance (Every 3000 Service Hours or 2 Year)

8 steps
This procedure focuses on your equpment's cooling system coolant sample. It also provides the complete list of guidelines for proper sampling of the coolant.
  • Cooling System Coolant Sample (Level 1) - Obtain

  • Note: Obtain a Coolant Sample (Level 1) if the cooling system is filled with any other coolant instead of Cat ELC.

  • This includes the following types of coolants.

  • NOTICE Always use a designated pump for oil sampling, and use a separate designated pump for coolant sampling. Using the same pump for both types of samples may contaminate the samples that are being drawn. This contaminate may cause a false analysis and an incor- rect interpretation that could lead to concerns by both dealers and customers.

  • Note: Level 1 results may indicate a need for Level 2 Analysis.
