6.0L oil looks green?

So I notice that my oil looks to have a greenish tint to it. I am about so for oil change but I have seen it this color before. Coolant level fine and oil smells fine....is it just dirty or what? I should prolly send in for oil analysis. Let me know what your thoughts are.

Mine looked the same way before I switched to Motorcraft to save a few bucks. I was like, what the heck? It must be a Rotella thing.

Blackstone labs is a good place to get an oil analysis. The VW guys really like them.

some oil brands are tinted differant than others. I highly recommend switching to motorcraft 10w30 cj-4 rated diesel motor oil. your in pittsburg so you will notice a huge differance in cold starts and overall performance. we run this oil in every diesel oil change we do at my dealer, summer or winter. and it is fairly priced. a dealer or any place that sells motorcraft should stock it or be able to order it for you.
