Oil Too Clean at 3000 miles?
Well I have only done one oil change on the truck since I have owned it and after 3500 miles the oil still looks very clean, like gas motor clean. I have owned and been around multiple diesels over the past few years and the oil is always black as can be. I own a jeep with a 4 cyl diesel it it now also and it has the normal very black diesel oil even after 1000 miles it's super black. I owned a 7.3 two years ago and it also had the norm black oil.
I guess I just want to make sure nothing is wrong, I mean I would know it if the truck wasn't getting the oil press it needs, the gauge reads normal press.
Is there anything I should be worried about?
Maybe Ill take a pic and show you guys. Thanks
