Thanks again. I have much to learn. I will be reading about flushing the cooling system in detail. I found the report on your site today and will be studying it this week.

Dealer Says Nothing is wrong!!

Hi Guys,
Happy Mother Day!!!
My buddy has taken his '08 F250 6.4 to the dealership twice in the last ~year. They say nothing is wrong. But he sees white smoke thick as paste behind him for a couple seconds once a month driving his truck twice a week. He has been pulled over by the highway patrol for the excessive smoke I have his VIN and the results of his oil test sample from Blackstone Labs. Not sure where to turn to get this fixed.
VIN: 1FTSX21R38EA91020
We would appreciates some help.
Thanks,
Werner

There's some not so great numbers (IMO, rather ugly) in that Blackstone UOA. Iron (translation, machined engine metal surfaces in the oil due to accelerated wear, that's the block, the cam, etc), aluminum, for starters. So on that note, maybe immediately start with an oil change before the next bi-weekly drive.
