maxtruck00 is starting off with a positive reputation.
what is all this red stuff??

picked up this truck a while back; a fleet "mechanic" pulled it apart.

I assume he was going after the oil cooler, and for some reason also has the hpop apart?

I'm assuming the red is cooked on oil, what do you guys think?

I bet long idle times on top of that. How was the oil level?
You might have the injectors tested to see if you have one dumping
fuel. Also look and see what the fuel filter looks like. Is it red as in
off road red dyed fuel?

You could do the trick that Anthony showed once you have all the injectors
back in. Pressurize the fuel system and have the oil drain out and see
if you get any fuel leaking out into the drain pan.

Maybe Anthony can post the link to that video.

I think some of the redline engine oils are a red color (not the full line of products though). I tried to check if the diesel rated ones might be red but didn't have any luck.

If you have a black light check to see if it fluoresces, someone may have put dye in it looking for a leak.

Or it could be trans fluid. It's hard to figure what folks will do sometimes (and why).
