C27 and C32 Generator Set Engines E057 Low Engine Coolant Level Derate Caterpillar


E057 Low Engine Coolant Level Derate
`

Conditions Which Generate This Code:

The coolant level is below the coolant level sensor. Information on default settings and ranges for this event code can be found in Troubleshooting, "Event Codes".

System Response:

The Electronic Control Module (ECM) will log the event.

Possible Performance Effect:

E057(2)

  • Engine power is derated.

Troubleshooting

  • The coolant level is most likely low.

  • Air may be trapped in the cooling system.

  • There may be a problem with the coolant level sensor.

Test Step 1. Check the Coolant Level

    ------ WARNING! ------

    Pressurized System: Hot coolant can cause serious burns. To open the cooling system filler cap, stop the engine and wait until the cooling system components are cool. Loosen the cooling system pressure cap slowly in order to relieve the pressure.


  1. Stop the engine.

  2. After allowing the engine to cool, check the coolant level. Refer to the Operation and Maintenance Manual.

Expected Result:

The coolant level is low.

Results:

  • OK - The coolant level is low.

    Repair: Check the cooling system for leaks. Repair any problems that are found. Refill the cooling system to the proper level.

    STOP

  • Not OK - The coolant level is not low.

    Repair: There may be air in the cooling system. For information on checking the cooling system, refer to the engine's Systems Operation/Testing and Adjusting manual.Ensure that any repairs eliminate the problem.

    STOP

  • Not OK - The coolant level is not low.

    Repair: There may be a problem with the coolant level sensor. Refer to the diagnostic functional test Troubleshooting, "Coolant Level Sensor Circuit - Test".Ensure that any repairs eliminate the problem.

    STOP
