chugging problem after oil is changed

i have a 2002 f250 7.3 crew cab with 70k miles. i just started useing lucas oil in it. but its done it with other oil too. it seems like every time i change the oil for a couple of days it will start chugging or hesitateing when i first start driving it. but then it goes away and there is no problems after that. has any one hab this problem? just joined the forum and there is a lot of great info, THANKS. just replaced my cam sensor today. now it runs again. easy fix.

16 quarts is too much oil!!!

Your truck should hold between 14.5 and 15 quarts. It should only be filled to between one third and halfay up the crosshatch cold. It should NEVER be about the halfway area of the crosshatch cold, NEVER......

You could be dealing with an issue called foaming due to an overfilled oil condition. If your at the top of the crosshatch cold, you will show almost a quart overfull warm.....something to think about anyway....i wont garantee its your problem though
