I checked my oil this weekend and its over full. The oil life on the the DIC has dropped by 80% over the 2000 miles since I changed the oil. Normally it takes 8000 miles to drop that much. The oil looks really thin. I know it's not anti freeze I'm guessing it's fuel in the oil. No other indicators truck runs great no smoke. Idle is fine. When I changed the oil was right on the full mark when I was done. I'm really worried it's a bad injector or injectors is there anything else I should look for? Thanks

Find someone who can check your balance rates. That will tell you which one is problematic, if the injectors are the culprit.

^He's spot on :drink

Your rates should be +/- 4 in park and +/-6 in drive

Also if you can't find anyone in your area, I don't remember where columbia city is since its been a while since I've lived in the state, but danville performance and fleece performance will have some v2's that you can probably use to read your balance rates worst case scenario

Well I totally over reacted. I was going by the dipstick and oil life on the DIC. I changed the oil today and got 10qts out like I should and the oil looked good. I guess don't trust a cable dipstick and forget the oil life is there and go by miles for the change. Thanks for the help guys
