Black Oil Immediately After Oil Change
 
I have a "new to me" 2013 6.7. Jus't changed the oil yesterday. Drained and replaced with 15W40 Rotella T5. Checked the dipstick to make sure it was full and the new oil was jus't as black as the old oil. Is this common on a engine with EGR and DPF or could it be something else. Any input is appreciated.

Welcome to the life of owning a diesel. Completely normal.

Black oil does not equal bad oil.

Keep in mind that when you drain the oil, you don't get all of it out. For example....the oil cooler. Immediately upon startup that oil in the valleys, oil cooler, etc are going to mix with your nice new golden colored oil and turn it black instantly.

As stated.....welcome to the world of diesels. No need to worry.

only real oil is black, the brown stuff is an impostor.

There's as much as a whole quart left over in the motor that cannot be drained out during regular oil changes.

Thanks everyone for the info. Jus't wanted to make sure since I have never had a diesel with all these emission systems on it. On my 99 7.3 it doesn't start looking dirty till it's almost time to change at 5K. Really like this 6.7 so far. Jus't hope it gives me the service my 7.3 has done, it has 445K on it now and still running strong.

Both my 6.0 and 6.7 have black oil a couple days after an oil change. The 6.0 is stock but straight piped and the 6.7 is DPF deleted, EGR is still intact but I believe the tuner closes it off as I was told to unplug it.

I thought ditching the EGR would keep the oil from turning black. No?
