QUICK kpop-oil cooler question

03 195,000 just changed 8 inj, oil cooler, blue spring, turbo drain tube. Just got everything back together, but I don't have any oil on hand to refill hpop reservior that I drained when changing oil cooler. Will it hurt anything to let it crank till it builds up oil pressure, didn't want to do that but its a long way to go for just a quart of oil. I have T-6 in it but I've got some 15-40 rotella T. Is it better to add a quart of 15-40 or just let it wind till it builds oil pressure enough to crank. Thanks

I believe that if you just fill the engine from the filter hole instead of the oil filler neck on the VC that it'll drain down to the HPOP and any additional will drain to the crankcase. That's where I fill from during oil changes.

yea, I didn't drain oil from the engine, just took oil out of hpop reservior to clean out and replace screen when I changed the oil cooler. I thought I had extra oil left over from last oil change to refill reservior but I don't, the engine oil pan is still full. I know it will fill the res back up but it will have to crank for a little bit before it does that and builds pressure and that was what I was tryin to avoid.

In that case, could always just drain out a few quarts into a clean container and then dump that into the oil filter canister.

Pull the FICM relay first. Cranking it over like you want to can run the batteries down and then the low voltage can fry your FICM.
If you have another diesel truck that you can use jumper cables on, that may help. If you don't have another rig to help, crank it over for 10-20 seconds and let it rest for a minute and repeat. Charge the batteries if you can hear the engine slow down while cranking. You want those batteries as charged up as you possibly can. After a total of about 3-5 minutes of cranking time, put the FICM relay back in and give it a go (be sure those batteries are at full charge).
Best thing would be to change the oil anyway, and when you go to refill the oil, pour it in through the oil filter housing. As mentioned above, there is an area in the housing that will divert some oil into the HPOP reservoir.
