So ive heard of these trucks making oil. I have about 4k on this change, and my oil is about a half an inch above the "thick" part of the dipstick. Took it out wiped it off 2x same result. I cannot smell any fuel, and my ccv is venting under the truck so im thinking bad things again.

I have the same problem. Its not like a milkshake if antifreeze is getting into it and no fuel smell. I have no clue where its coming from. If there r bad things happening inside the motor il be making plans to go to rudys.

Well im not loosing anti-freeze and the truck did sit a while. Next time I change my oil(1000k goes quick) imll send it off for an analysis i guess. Hopefully just a false alarm, but being paraniod can help find problems.

Ford engineer told me it is normal for the 6.4 to make a 1/2 to 1 inch of oil on the dipstick how? I have no clue but he told me it is normal

Yea, ive heard that too. But i think its from fuel when the DPF goes into regen. Not an issue here. Plus my ccv is venting to atmosphere, so i figured it would loose a little. Even if its fine, I would still like to know the WHY.

Well shoot we just need a gigantic 6.4 and we could extract the made oil from it and we wouldnt need to drill for oil anymore LOL

Sounds strange tho... surely there is some explanation to the problem.
