    Just curious.....anyone use Fram oil in their rig? I was in Advance Auto today and noticed that the Fram oil was taking over. There was a little Rotella, some Delvac and a couple quarts of Motorcraft 10w30. Hell, they have Fram everything in there now. I know that Fram doesn't make their own...

    Looking at used 2018 F150 3.0 Powerstroke that has a BUYBACK/LEMON label on the CARFAX report. Ive already confirmed that most extended warranty companies will NOT cover it. Ive confirmed my insurance WILL cover it. It was bought back by the manufacturer at 8k miles and then resold at 10k miles...

  4. General 6.7 Discussion (2011-2016)
    Just got done repairing a blown intercooler pipe on my 6.7 and I go to check the oil level and it looks dirty and has a greenish look to it. I'm running Rotella T6 5w-40. Is this normal? No noticeable coolant loss, not milky, and no odd smells. Just changed the oil about 1k miles ago. Previous...
  5. 6.4L Problems Forum
    Greetings, I recently bought a 2010 F250 Super Duty with the 6.4L and I've noticed oil spots accumulating under the places I park it. When I look under the truck, I don't see any active leaking, but the engine certainly has some oil residue in various locations and I'm imagining it's only...

    So, my factory lines at 170k mi, were leaking at the seals. I thought, hey why not replace them? New lines came with fittings and a xover line, which I did not use or care to discuss, but after initial install began leaking at same fittings. Now after 3 X r&r LEAKING! Has anyone tried replacing...
  7. 6.0L Problems Forum
    I picked up my first diesel this week and got it home to find a massive oil leak. Yippee. Now I’m worried the seller was offloading a bed plate issue onto me in worst case. it’s a 2006 6.0 powerstroke (egr delete, studded, no chip) and the bell housing and oil pan are covered from both sides...

  9. 94-98 7.3L Problem Forum
    Ok, so first I was getting billowing white smoke intermittently. Not on cold start but different times. The last time it did it it started after an hour drive. Wouldn't stop so I parked it and trailered it home. When I started it up 12hr later to drive it onto the trailer it was not smoking...

    My late-99 7.3 had always had Delo 15w40 dino oil since birth. Switched to Rotella T4 a couple of years ago when the Delo was no longer on Ford’s “approved” list. With 115k miles, I have no oil leaks and it runs great, even towing a 26-foot travel trailer. If it matters, the highest the EOT has...
  11. E-Series Van Discussion
    Hey folks! So I did a head gasket change a while back and in a not very proud moment, I neglected to get new valve body gasket. It seemed pretty heavy duty and I didn't realize it was something that needed to be changed. As a result I am getting some oil leaks on the back driver's side. When I...

    I have an oil transfer pump I’d like to sell. It’s a 1hp Fill-Rite I have about 20’ of oil resistant transfer hose. This will move oil,transmission fluid and veggie oil pretty fast. I added a spin on filter as well with shut off valve. Pm me if interested, I live in Crossville Tn. I no longer...
  13. 6.7 Problems Forum (2011-2016)
    I have a recently deleted 2011 F350 that has started spitting out white smoke and oil everywhere. I went for the delete because the EGR was going bad (noisy, frequent cleaning, etc). The rear corner panel is covered in brown oil after a few hours of driving. I'm being told to go as far as...
  14. 6.4 Maintanence Info
    Since purchasing my used 2010 F-250, 6.4 which I use mainly for pulling a 25', 7,000# trailer I have used Rotella T-6 15W-40. Oil changes done at 5,000 miles. Truck now has 160,000 miles. Recently I purchased Rotella T-4 as it was nearly $9 cheaper per gallon. I recognize the T-4 is not...
  15. 6.0L Problems Forum
    I have a 2006 6.0 and just replaced my oil cooler. Did about everything I could to get all the oil it pumped into my coolant system out but when driving about 70 on the highway I see EOTs of 210 and ECTs around 204-208. Before my oil cooler went my EOTs were never above 202 (unloaded without a...

    Hello, I have 2000 F-250 7.3 and Unfortunately the previous owner put his knee on the oil pressure sensor pigtail. The gauge was dancing up and down for awhile but now has decided to completely stop working and leaving the oil pressure warning light on. My question is- Does that sensor...

    My oil had turned to gel. Second time this has happened. First time I didn't believe the mechanics when they said the oil gelled up the engine and all the new injectors. 188k miles on the truck an have been running T6 plus Revx every oil change from 60k on the truck. This time I only had 800...

    New to the forum, and although I have a lot of learning to do when it comes to navigating the site, I’m nearly positive I am the first, and possibly the only one, interested in doing something like this. Now to my question: My dad can turn the motor over in his 01 Ranger without the injectors...
