1999 F-250 Oil Dipstick length-fellow stroker in distress...
Hey, I have a 1999 three quarter ton 4x4 long bed with 273000 miles. I have some kind of oil problem that is really bad. I have to put 2.5-3 quarts of oil for every 250 miles! I'm glad diesel is going down but I make up for it having to buy so much oil!
The funny thing about losing so much oil is that I don't know where it is going. I mean it doesn't smoke hardly at all on start up, or when I am at an idle position. Only when I put the peddle to the floor on the road does it smoke. There is no known leak. I only see a little bit of road dirt around the oil pan under the truck. It isn't bad enough to be three quarts every 300 miles though. What should I do? any ideas?
Oh, I also wanted to double check the dipstick length and part number for my truck too....anybody know what the correct number and length is supposed to be? Thanks for reading...looking forward to the responses!
