Mysterious oil rise!!

I have an 03 6.0 with 148k. I noticed an oil leak yesterday and it was coming from my rear main seal. I checked the oil level and it was way over the full mark!!!! Like 6 quarts. I had my oil changed 4500 miles ago and am due for another. What in the world would cause me to have more oil in my crankcase?

darn

you have a leak and the oil is over full. I would take a sample and get an oil analysis.

the first thing i thought of was obviously the coolant. The color of the oil looks good and The coolant level is fine. I am going to take it to get looked at on saturday. how much does that analysis cost?

Has the truck been idling and running rough like it's missing? If so, you've likely got a bad injector.

if not coolant then you could have a leaky injector as well.

you can get a free kit from blackstone then its 20 bucks for them to do the analysis.

I would suggest getting it looked at ASAP. If you have an injector going bad, it could possibly get stuck open and burn that cylinder up.

If it is still under warranty you can't beat the 100 dollar deductible!
