Mine went up over the end of the dipstick after 300 miles and 2 regens, oddly though it seems to go to a point and then stop gaining otherwise after 3000 miles I should have a crankcase full of fuel with a little bit of oil mixed in.
I let it drain for a few hours and then threw exactly 3 gallons minus the filter prime capacity in it which after a ride around the block set the oil level at bit past 3/4 into the safe zone.
Waiting on the oil analysis results from the first change.
Do the burning paper trick - it's fun.I have litterally heard when it goes into regen, the motor gets a different tune and you can cook off the tail pipe
I believe you, the 1st time i noticed it was i rolled up to a light and then all of a sudden it gets that diesel truck motor sound..i jumped out quick to see what the exhaust was like... and then i noticed i could cook off the temp of the exhaust at the tail....Do the burning paper trick - it's fun.
The plants behind the parking spot that I back into at my house are scorched from parking during a regen while going up a few miles of hills.
I noticed this on my truck as well. Turns out, the level on the stick depends on how warm the truck is. When I check it in the morning, before starting it, oil is in the normal range. If I check it after driving around, it ia way over the full mark, at the end of the white part like you said. The longer I wait after having it running, the lower the oil level will read. Try checking it in the morning before you start it...manual says this is the prefered method...see if it's any different.OK pretty much as it say's there fellas
What is full on the stick? either someone overfilled my truck or something is adding to it (little guy's at night)...or full on my stick is where it is, covering the entire white bulb at the end of the stick.....
This morning I drove mine around town for a bit and then parked it on the level - waited an hour and then checked it 3 times (wiped between checks) then I BSed with a neighbor for 30 minutes and checked it again - I noticed that after each check a gap was forming between the full mark at the top of the stick and the rest of the oil on top, 10 more check n wipes and there is now a noticeable gap between the full marker and the rest of the oil on the top.
There is still more oil in there than I saw when I checked it after the first oil change but it is only a tad over the full mark then there is a clean gap and then more oil to the end of the plastic.
(I know about macro mode just forgot to use it)
:lol3:(makes a note to steal slags better dip stick),
