Default Oil color after ********

For those who are ******d, does the oil look clean after a oil change? Or still sooty?

If you're using Royal Purple, it's hard to tell

I use Valvoline. It's better, but still gets dirty.

It's a diesel. And it will still soot load without those parts.

Most diesels will have black oil right after the first start up post oil change. It's the status quo if you will. My customers that use my oil and a couple of other high performance oils don't blacken quite as fast. But that's so out of the ordinary that people used to say my oil, and the others, weren't working. I will be making a video soon about this. I'll post the link here for you. However, you could have a broken ring, sticky injector, or a very badly maintained engine. If you want to know, shoot me a DM and we can properly test the oil.

Changed my oil recently, and it was gold. Have 2k since the last change, and still looks clean, starting to slowly get dirty.

My 2001 7.3 when I changed with mobile one fully synthetic stayed golden for about 10,000 miles, I would change it about every 15,000. My 2016, 6.7, gets dirty After the 1st deff regen cycle. I am told it is because of the deff recycling its gasses into the crankcase And manifold

Unless you are making sure the entire block is dry and clean from the last oil used, it's going to be dirty/sooty regardless of the oil you use. I recall the dry motor refill is like 15 qts, and a normal change is 13 qts.

6.4/6.7 will dirty the oil almost immediately. they have so much blow by from loose rings it isnt even funny. factor in a dirty tune and all bets are off.
