WTF oil analysis return

Anyone seen something like this?
Fuel levels are "trace", silicon levels aren't too bad. I've re-oiled my AFE every few months, contemplating going back to the factory donaldson, at least we know those filter super great.

Any ideas were I should start looking for problems?

Trying to understand why. W/ only 3200 miles on the oil and NO fuel, I worry that something is amiss. If something needs repairing, want to do it now under warranty.

Re: WTF oil analysis return

The problem with the warranty is that it needs to break before the dealer will touch it as far as warranty is concerned. They don't care what your oil analysis says.

I see the analysis now....when I first looked at your post the analysis didn't show.

Did a few runs, but never towed anything.
Will change the oil this weekend and monitor.

Its a job 1 so maybe its an injector issue? My fuel level seems to be normal and the testing confirms there was only trace amounts.

I'll try to track down a tech to do a CCT and a compression test.
I have a few months left of the 5 year/100k warranty.

I only put on about 5-7k a year so i'd be p$ssed to have 80K out of warranty and have the motor go to [email protected] because of a tsb or recall that should have been handled under warranty.
