I talked with the local garage guru here (well, THAT's what he calls hizsef)
and he said to CHANGE THE OIL
So I splained that I got this sled fum a fella whoz suppozed to know what's going on and told me that there aint no more than 1500 miles on the oil and it's UP.
NOW GET THIS
He says to dump the oil, filter and put in 14 QUARTS, no matter what the dipstick says.
Startin to sound good now. OK ?
Then he SEZ
Look at the dickstik and if'n the oil level shows LOW
CUT THAT MUCH OFF THE STICK TUBE !
So I ax:
He sez that if the oil's low, that the injectors aren't being opened and I need tomake sure they get enough oil
He also said that it normally happens when it's cold or on a cold start. So that's what I've experienced.
But, yeah, I have the link for the DORMAN replacement sensor and I'm keeping that in the back of my mind.
(what little there's of it....)
