Arrow Job # of overfull oil

To the people who are having overfull oil issues please post your Job # and build date (if you know it). I am hoping that Ford had a bad set of injectors and/or pumps and it is not just a complete bad design on behalf of navistar. With such a high pressure system would this not have been foreseen?

I am about to change my oil for the first time (six months has passed and at 2,300 miles) I will probably do an oil analysis (to check for fuel % mainly). Mine is a Job 2 born in September of 2007.

Good luck all. I believe this is something that if left unchecked will turn into a monster for ford (or something we as customers all know and Ford tries to sweep under the rug). They will probably use this as a reason that they switched to an in house engine and tout their new engine meanwhile screwing those who have been loyal. I think once damage has been done, what's done is done. When these are the only diesel engines crapping out at 110,000 miles with hard engine failures (opposed to normal wear items) even when taken care of, it will be too late for customers and too bad for ford as it is their product I will remember.

what can I say my truck is my toy.....I have a work vehicle and a car for running around. I want to pay my truck off and get a boat, so I am not putting too many miles on it right now,,,I would rather put more money on the payment than in the tank right now. Not that I watch how many miles I drive but it just turns out that way so I stick it into the payment at the end of the month....

I want to do the dpf/spartan but it is problems like this that keep me from doing it...I will watch mine for a while and see how it is acting. I hope I missed many of the Job 1 problems....This injector/fuel issue has potential to be big money so I will rule it out before modding

Seems they are claiming regen is causing it. This can't be true because they all go into regen when they are stock. They would all have the problem. There are problems with certain trucks.

Mine was built March 07. 34000 miles and no problem yet.

A little over 5k on the OD. My oil is 1/4-3/8 of a inch over the the plastic bulb. Took it in, dealer said it is normal within ford specs. They said it was due to regen. I have my dashdaq in hand (no tunes yet), I wonder if the dpf delete will solve my problem. I have a job 2 with a build date of 9/07.

I figure I'll check my oil sometime this week and see.

I was curious what the dealers are doing. Are they changing the oil? If so just take it in every 1000 miles for a free oil change.
