Why does my Cummins Engine have low oil pressure?
Thats is right – it is BOTH actually. On engines with DPF (2007 and up) soot in the oil gets so high (these motors recirculate WAY more exhaust gasses than pre-DPF) it overcomes the oil filter media and eventually blows the engines. I think Cummins changed filter or filter recommendation .
