    Re: Motorcraft 15w40

    The Powerjokes are especially sensitive to foaming as the injectors are actuated by engine oil at extremely high pressure. The Ford literature indicates that foaming can be a problem, especially for the 7.2 DI. Since the change interval was lengthened somewhat for the 6.0, we assume there is...

    Re: Motorcraft 15w40

    The Motorcraft Superduty 15W-40 is especially formulated to avoid FOAMING of the engine oil. FOAMING will lessen the likelihood that the injector rack operates as designed and performance will suffer. The injector operation depends on an oil that doesn't FOAM. 4 qts of the engine oil are...

    Un-Gel ; Chemical Change

    Hey Robbie, I'm fairly sure that in Alaska or very far North, kerosene or jetfuel is used, which is far less viscous. In fact, special injector pumps are available from Navistar that have special hardened parts to withstand the increased abrasion of the thinner fuels. 400 gls of fuel will get...

    Un-Gel ; Chemical Change

    Houston will prolly get down to 55 or 60 F this winter, right? (He prolly travels). I thought that was a good question. I remember back in the old days sitting on the side of the road waiting for a mechanic to come and get us "ungelled", like Ill. or Indiana. Didn't have fuel heaters on the old...

    Time for an oil change, or an OIL CHANGE??

    <blockquote>quote:<hr />Originally posted by Drew99GT: <strong> One other thing to think about is the fact that oil change shops lubricate your chassis components as well; something that shouldn't be overlooked. Especially on a 4wd jeep. It is very easy to do however. Your jeep probably only...

    Oil for a 03 F250 7.3 Liter Power Stoke

    I have an acquaintance that leases a Ford Van to FedEx. His first van, with PSD, was sold at 300k. The only problem he had was a faulty sending unit in the fuel tank. His second van, with PSD, now has about 150K, no problems. He uses Rotella 15W40 and whatever filters the oil change guy...

Cummins states that their experience is that such filters like the K&N filter allow enough stuff through to score pistons. One assumes, since they mention specifically the brand, that...
