It shouldn't smell like oil. Are you sure there wasn't just a little oil spilled when you refilled the crankcase and maybe the wind was just blowing towards the back of the truck?

If your dpf delete pipe is new they sometimes have oil on them from manufacturing, might take a while to burn off, otherwise it might just be from the CCV...and the fact nothing is being filtered from the exhaust...keep an eye on the level, might be a sign of a leaking turbo seal also if you start losing oil more and more...but I don't think that is very common in the 6.4...very likely could be nothing...

Its most likely from your CCV. I wouldnt worry. Rotella is good oil. These forums can make you paranoid about the little things.

OP, you indicated you didn't physically change it? you had a shop do so?

I bet a dollar they spilled oil on the engine when they were swapping filters, and I bet it's that simple..

I do all my own work on my vehicles, mechanic by trade just don't work on diesels. Exactly these forums do make you paranoid about everything since its such a expensive engine and ford is real tight on what they warranty on diesels. Ill keep an eye on the oil level tho, thanks for the help guys as always!
