A little bit shouldn't pose a problem.  Its probably condensation.  If you
notice much more or notice it on the dipstick, theres a possibility of an
internal water leak.

Brett,

Sounds like moisture (water) to me.  Not very unusual, especially during a
cold snap.  If your old oil was good and black when drained it was probably
water free, so condensation would be the source of the stuff on the filler
cap.  If you are driving mostly short distances it is quite common.  The oil
just never gets hot enough to eliminate the moisture through normal
ventilation.

If it was me I wouldn't worry about it unless it becomes worse.  Take the
truck for a good hard run then remove the cap and see what you get.

Hi Brett,

I noticed the same thing when I just did the oil change on my 2000 F350 CC
DRW V10.  It looked like grease to me.  Maybe Ford smears it on the cap to
lubricate the seal?  I didn't do the first oil change on it because I had a
free oil change certificate from the dealer, so I'm not sure if the "foam"
was there the first time.  I had an early 99 F350 V10 for almost 2 years and
never noticed this problem on any oil changes.

Hey all,

I just took delivery of a new 2000 PSD SD F250 with a Manual 6sp which I
love!
The problem I'm having is that I can feel a vibration through the clutch
pedal when I engage it, I also hear a groaning sound.  I took it to the
dealer and they said it was normal. I don't believe the dealer.
Has anyone had anything similar happen?
I figure it is something in the pressure plate or throw out bearing

Any feed is greatly appreciated

-Ed

Thanks for the help with the moisture in the v10.
I'm wondering if anybody knows whether approximate or exact, How many Cubic
inches on the Ford V10.  The dealer did'nt really know, and I've never been
able to find anything on it.  Thanks- Brett

Subject: Club FTE Referral Program


Club FTE is off to a fantastic start. Club Memberships will
be setup this weekend and membership cards mailed out on
Monday along with complete information on setting up and
using your membership accounts. Those with t-shirts in
their membership orders have already had the t-shirts shipped.

Since the club is off to a good start, we've decided to give
an added benefit for club members! For each person a club
member refers to Club FTE that signs up you'll receive a $5
credit in the FTE store! The FTE store is in the process of
adding a ton of new items for new and older trucks next week
so this will be of great benefit to active recruiters.

There is a $100 limit to credits. This does not mean you can't
get more than $100 in credits. It simply means you have to use
your $100 of credit before you can earn more. The sign-up form
has a place for referring members.

The club pages can be found at:

It could be the moisture being steamed out of the oil. With the cold
weather, you could have condensation forming in the oil pan which would cook
out (along with other impurities) when the oil got up to temp.

Brett:

  I won't swear to it on the V10 (since I have a PSD), but I've had
that happen intermittently on gas burners in the past.  Usually, I've
noticed it more often when it's cold out and I'm taking a bunch of short
trips.  The engine doesn't warm up enough to get rid of the water vapor
in the crankcase.
