Well, after getting the intake gaskets done on the truck (they were leaking
some antifreeze on to the outside), I have put 100 kms on it and now the oil
pressure drops in half, and I notice it pinging and knocking, so check the
oil and it seems really dirty already and smells of gas. I changed oil and
filter and I am sending a sample in to the lab to see what exactly is in it,
and am not driving it until I find out what's going on.
The mechanic blew my mind when I discussed this with him, he said the same
thing happened to someone else's truck......he got the gaskets changed, then
lost oil pressure, so put a new oil pump in, and went on a short trip and
the main bearings seized up. I don't want that to happen to me!
I wonder if there is something wrong with the oil he put in, but how can
that be? But how is gas getting in the oil all of a sudden? It' very
ANyone have any ideas what might be going on??
