Strange oil occurance
I had oil smoke and odor in my down pipe? Ford was unable to tell me why?
I get it home after 3 weeks and find its overfull of engine oil, at the top just onto the metal stick? Why? Oil was changed correctly and 15 quarts added. Engine only has 45k on it and has been overhauled with all the goodies at Ford. No bad injectors and change motorcraft oil ever 5k miles.
After letting the oil out no more smoke and no odor? Turbo and intercooler were soaked. It was obviously comming through the ccv. Truck has always run great.
Any reason why only a couple quarts over would be pushing its way into my downpipe, which had residue. ?
No other leaks except at the rocker box, which was prolly initiated by this. I have recently put a Banks intercooler and rerouted the ccv, no excessive blow by.
I was told to start the truck and shut it off then check the oil level. If you let it sit it shows way too full. Via ford diesel tech.
On a side note, I have an 06, books shows me to have the newer dip stick tube and stick with the yellow round handle, I have the old type? I check the build date and should have the newer one, weird?
Truck is a ok after I let out some oil?
How the heck?
