Engine oil pressure must be at least 69 kPa [10 psi] at 700
Correct the problem if the oil pressure is not within
Caution: Do not operate the engine at idle speed longer
than specified during engine run-in. Excessive carbon
formation will cause damage to the engine.
Operate the engine at approximately 700 RPM for 3 to 5
Listen for unusual noises; watch for coolant, fuel, and

Operate the engine at this speed and load level until the
coolant temperature is 70C [160F]. Check all gauges
and record the data.
NOTE: Do not proceed to the next step until a steady blowby
reading is obtained.
