Why does the oil pressure go down on an ISX?
I have been scratching my head working on an ISX. About every 2500miles the oil pressure goes down to about 20psi. Replace the oil filter and pressure pops back up. I have seen this before, but it’s usually caused by extended oil drain interval, or something mechanically wrong.

Even in my older isx that had more than a million miles According to Cummins minimum allowable oil pressure at idle at operating temperature is 15 psi. Governed speed with no load is 35 to 40 psi.
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 .
Are there any problems with the Cummins ISM?
The Next Generation came out with the Cummins ISX and had pretty much the same problems as the Cummins ISM did. EGR issues were common problems on these engines. You would get a warning light on the dash and a code stored in the ECM. Most of the time the problem with the EGR valve was that the EGR valve would not open and close all the way.
