Damage from seriously overfilling crankcase?
Had been having trouble with no throttle issues on my 04 6.0 and it finally left me stranded about 1/2 mile from a Ford dealer so I let them work on it. Turned out to be a frayed wire but while they had it I had the leaking intercooler removed, egr deleted, and they changed the oil....I thought!!
It ran rough but the tech said it would smooth out after a few hundred miles. Took it back at about 700 miles cause it felt like it was fighting itself at low rpm. They said it was because of fuel pump (20 psi) and injector issues. I put a new pump on and decided to try some Hot Shot's Secret on the injectors but by this time I've got 1700 miles since they worked on it so I figured fresh oil was in order along with the Hot Shot's.
When I went to change it I found over 7 gallons of oil in that motor. OK, I know it's on me to check but this was from a dealer and the bigger issues were what I thought was contributing to the problem. Apparently they added oil but forgot to drain the old out.
Now my question...It seems to be running fine now but what damage was done while I was running around for all those miles with that much oil in it? I haven't gone back to them yet cause I wanted some input on any damage that might not show up right away. Don't really want them going any where near it any more but want them to be accountable if it's going to cause me problems.
