  1. 911 Urgent Situations
    I'm getting ready to purchase my first diesel truck and I feel like I went through all the places on my initial inspection.

    Was checking oil and noticed it kept going up, I suspected fuel in oil and smelt it and it smells just like oil. So I think its coolant, its not very bad at all but definitely made the oil a little thinner and lighter. I notice coolant going down all the time but didn't think twice because of my...

    Hello, I am in search of used Shell Rotella T4 15W-40 motor oil, preferably with around 10k+ miles of use put on it using a Cummins 6.7L QSB engine.

    So I’m looking at possibly buying a 99 24v from a dealership if the price it right, my concern is, is there a way to see if they put Lucas or some kind of ring seal in the oil to hide any blow by the engine may have. A few years ago we bought a 05 5.9 from a dealership and when we changed the...
