Oil fill cap is secure.
Oil dipstick is secure.
All electrical wiring is secure.
Coolant fill cap is secure.
Evidence of oil, fuel, and coolant leaks.
Close engine access doors and secure.
AIR CLEANER ASSEMBLY
Check the air restriction indicator. If red line is low on
the scale, have Organizational Maintenance replace
Inspect vacuator valve. The valve lips should be
open only when the engine is shut down, or running
at low idle speed. If the valve is turned inside out,
check for a clogged air cleaner inlet. Malfunction of
this valve does not reduce the air cleaner
effectiveness, but does allow the element to get dirty
faster and reduces serviceable life. If a valve is lost
or damaged, have Organizational Maintenance
replace it with a new valve of the same part number.
Check the air cleaner intake pipe caps and screens
for accumulation of leaves and other debris that
Maintenance repair screens or replace caps if any
large holes are found in the screen.
Check mounting hardware for security to eliminate
possible vibration of intake piping. Such vibration
leads to early failure of hoses, clamps and mounting
parts, and can cause hoses to slip off the connecting
pipes, allowing unfiltered air into the engine air
Check hoses for cracks, chafing or deterioration, and
have Organizational Maintenance replace at the first
sign of probable failure.
