Oil Pressure Switch

All,

In the middle of putting on BPD Oil Cooler and when I removed old oil cooler, I noticed the electrical wire for the oil pressure switch on top of the oil cooler had been severed. When did this happen, dunno? Out of curiosity, how does this effect the performance of the rig, I haven't had any performance issues at all.

Without knowing your oil psi is at least ok theres a risk you could keep running it with no oil. The wiring doesnt even go to the ecm, just to the dash.

without oil there is nothing to open the injectors. so if you run out of oil, the truck shuts off.

resplice it, its for a dummy light i think.

Oil cooler and hpop resevoir hold about 3-4 quarts, plus you could always have less that the 5-7 psi that the switch turns off at. My estimates say that this would possibly keep your engine running just long enough to melt your crank to your bearings. Will it affect the engine? No, could it possibly prevent you from needing a new lower end should you be paying half decent attention to your gauges? Yes.

Nows the perfect opportunity to justify buying a set of gauges to your wife. Get trans, and egt while your at it.

Thanks gents...i pay close attention to my gauges...never had a cel or trouble code pop on the cts...already ordered the part to have it fixed so i can button her back up. I check fluids religously also for peace of mind, and have trans, egt, turbo along with the cts already set up, just thought it was weird...
