Dealership called about my truck

Well the dealership called today and said it's the HPOP cover gasket leaking and that the injectors tested fine. He assured me that 4% fuel in the oil is normal in the 6.0 and 6.4 engines. He said something about the oil and fuel went through a regen cylce and that the injectors were operated off the oil which causes fuel to get in the oil and as long as I change the oil at 5k this refreshes it and your engine will be fine. He went on to say that it's the people that go from 5-10k oil changes that have problems. Feels like he's trying to blow smoke, but I wanted to see what you all thought.

If you didn't see my other thread about the oil leak and my oil analysis showing a high percentage of fuel, it's here:
Oil Analysis Results - What do you think?

The images below are of the work done a while back that I mentioned in my previous thread.




Thanks!

So do you think the 4% is high? What should I do? They also told me I'd have to pay 100$ for the injector test since there was nothing wrong with them.

Is there anyway this bad HPOP gasket could put fuel in the oil?

Did you give them studs to put in while they replaced your head gaskets along with pretty much all the other gaskets and seals!

Actually, when I looked the truck over to buy it, I found oil leaking and told the guy I wouldn't buy it until he took it to the dealership and they fixed it. So he took it in and had it worked on. This was also before I was aware of the stud issue

Yes, 4% is high.
Find another dealership that isn't going to blow smoke.
No, a failed HPOP gasket will not put fuel in the oil. HPOP stands for High Pressure OIL Pump. It pressurizes oil and has nothing to do with fuel other than the fact that the oil pressure generated by the HPOP is used to inject the fuel.

So if it's not the injectors, what else could put fuel in the oil?

I didn't say that it couldn't be injectors, I said it couldn't be the HPOP gasket.
It could be an injector.

Sorry, I understood you completely. I'm referring to where I said that the dealership told me they tested the injectors and said they were good. So I was curious if something else could go bad and dump fuel into the oil besides injectors. My oil analysis also shows high copper and iron. If I'm not mistaken the injectors have copper in them. I guess I can ask to see the results from their balance test? I just want to make sure I have my facts straight before I talk to them in the morning.

You have a dealership with a mouth full of smoke puckered up ready to blow it all in your azz.

Sorry, but someone needed to say it.
