You need some type of cleaner to get the rest of that crap off there. Bad idea. You sure don't want the diesel fuel or any other solvent entering the engine. I would change oil immediately after tightening things back up. I would opt for a diesel oil or oil with high detergents and change oil every 1500 miles for the next 9000 miles . I would then run Mobil Drive Clean Synth Blend at 3000 mile intervals twice. You can then go with your regular 3000 miles with dino or a better choice would be 5000 mile intervals or 5 months. Waste of time. Use Auto-Rx and get the job done right. You could certainly try additives like Auto-RX along with the above. It wouldn't hurt to try it in your case or you can just rely on the oil detergents and frequent changes to see how that helps. Strictly speaking, Auto-Rx is not an oil additive. Whatever we call it, it works.
