00' F350, 6-spd, 150'ish miles. *Edit* only "mods" are a MBRP 4" dual system and 6637 filter*
Oil level hasn't moved a drop since changed it a little over a month ago (until now) and is still quite clean, impressed with that.
Installed my MBRP 4" system Friday, checked my oil Sunday and noticed it dropped nearly 1/2qt (half way down crosshatch on dipstick) since Friday. Noticed a little dripping from my drain plug, suspected that was it, backed plug off and retightened, seemed to have solved that "leak". Came to town last night, maybe did a couple high-throttle/RPM gear runs, but not for long or any worse than the occasional, didn't notice anything out of the norm.
This morning I started the truck for about 10 seconds, only to move it down the driveway . Came back out an hour later to head to work, decided to check oil level, it's down probably 3/4qt and no drips from the drain plug . . . start the truck (dash oil pressure gauge seemed to come up almost instantly this time). Get out to let it warm up and it's blowing blue smoke pretty bad for probably 15 seconds. It dies down a bit after than, but shoots a bit on a couple quick revs after that.
There is almost always a little oil puddle on the frame/leaf spring under the passenger side front intercooler/intake boot. After getting the exhaust I noticed there seems to always be a black liquid in the tips. I can't tell if it's oil, or water & soot, but it feels thick like oil.
Also installed a 6637 filter a day after exhaust if it matters. Also, the truck always starts good, the occasional little puff of white/diesel smelling smoke, but nothing to worry about IMO. The little black valve looking device the tube from the waste plugs into constantly clicks while Key-On Engine-Off, BTW.
Any help is appreicated, as I seriously hope I haven't screwed up anything major, a.k.a., expensive.
Thanks again, Kyle.
