Fuel in crankcase need ideas please

After. Checking the oil put about 200 miles on my 97 f250. Checked oil again to find it prolly a gallon over full. Lots of fuel. Seems to be runing and starting fine no white smoke. Was told by a ford tech sounded like the lift pump is bad. Has anyone else had this issue. Thanks for any suggestions.

O-Rings on one or more of your injectors is bad and allowing the fuel side to leak into the head? Lots of other things will need to be replaced if you are pulling injectors. Time to start thinking about bigger sticks and tuning if that is your intended final direction.

Dont run that truck one more second with diesel fuel in the crankcase.. you'll strip bearings quicker than hookers strip their clothes off in 'vegas.

could be headgasket or o-rings to start.... o-rings more common than head gaskets.
