I took the sample when I changed the oil Saturday (sample was taken hot) and I noticed a few drops of oil coming from around the inspection plug on the transmission. I moved the rubber plug around and it was wet with what looked like engine oil. What do you think I should do? My warranty runs out in October; should I take the truck to Ford with the analysis results and get them to fix the leak and check the injectors? The truck was in the shop for a leaking bed plate and other gaskets this time last year.
What is the high Iron and Copper a sign of?
Thanks in advance!
I change my air filter every 12,000 miles or so, have been told that pop out indicator is like the factory dash gages after you see it is too late.
Also as note have found my MPG’s drop about a half a mile and then more after 15,000 miles so with the price of fuel one recovers the cost of the air filter in changing it often.
As to the iron / copper issue Blackstone touched on the maybes, after having a motor taken apart as down as yours I would be changing the oil and filter within 1,000 to 1,500 miles after getting it back to get any junk that may have gotten into the motor, its cheep prevention. Then having Blackstone test an sample after another 2,500 miles to make sure everything was put back correctly.
