Unhappy High Oil Level and BLUE!

Took truck in for oil change at dealership. Service pkg transfer when i bought it used. Drain plug started leaking soon after. Oil sprayed all over the undercarriage. Checked the level, STILL HIGH!
I slid a piece of cardboard under it to keep oil (& fuel) off driveway. Looked and the oil was BLUE! ****!

Took it into dealer. when I was talking to one of the techs, (with hood open) my service adviser leans in and asks "is this a diesel?"
got a call, bad injector and the same service adviser told me my "fuel trim was at 14." wtf does that mean? is she saying i have 14% fuel in my oil? They are replacing an injector and are in the process of talking with ford.
I think they should pay for a delete kit. or at least offset the price. Looks like I need to start shopping for "the kit that changed my truck" Im going to ask if they will cover a spartan with the 275 under warranty. hahah could you imagine?

EDIT: they are obviously going to cover the washer one the plug and i get a free change. what is involved in replacing an injector? are they going to yank the cab? I dodn't dare ask what # it was because I didn't want the service advisor's head to explode.

does "that" = "they"? if so, then no. i am saying the truck is "making oil" during the regen process.

Why is it I get no responses on my threads? is that boring? fuel in oil seems to be common and no response? i thought i would get some insight on the injector at least.

Is it because of injector or regen?!

I am still trying to figure out what your original post is asking/saying.

Regen will affect your level a bit and the longer you drive the truck the higher your level will read. As you approach the end of your 8000miles, my service manager said that i can be as high as a couple inches above the mark. That being said, I am at 8000 now and my level is bang on with the truck driven half stock and half tuned.

So to me, it sounds like an injector and I think the cab has to come off. Mine came off last week for an exhaust leak. I cannot imagine it taking more then a couple days and it should be all under warranty.
