Changing the Oil Filter on the 6V92 Detroit Diesel+

The 6V92 Detroit Diesel absolutely needs clean oil in order to keep functioning as it should. The good news is, keeping the oil clean is a relatively easy process, by monitoring and replacing the oil filter every 1000 hours of operation. Here are the steps:

Step One: Inspect the shell, or outer part, of the filter. If it is obviously damaged, the entire unit should be replaced. Remove the drain plug from the bottom of the filter shell. Drain the oil.

Step Two: Locate the center stud, a long bar that runs the length of the oil filter. Remove the shell, element, and stud from the engine. Throw the element and shell's gasket.

Step Three: Remove the center studs and the gasket. If the gasket is not damaged, it can be reused. Locate the element retainer seal. Remove and discard it.

Step Four: Using the filter removal tool, take the filter out and throw it away. Remove the bypass valve by taking the screw/retainer or plug/gasket off.

Step Five: Clean the filter shell and base. The bypass valve can be cleaned in fuel oil.

Step Six: Install the center stud gasket and slide it through the filter shell. Install a new shell gasket, and put a new element over the center stud. Replace the drain plug.

Step Seven: Add oil and check the level with the dipstick.
