Re: 351C - a lot of Fuel in my Oil? Any suggestions?
Ha! I seriously considered putting it back into my tank! But, I didn't. It might not have hurt too much but with the problems I have been having lately I didn't want to add to them.
And I am still worried about the bearings though! I only went 10 miles max while my oil level was going up. I was keeping an eye on it since I figured something was up after the first oil change. I think I am ok though. No excessive noise, even under load, so I am guessing not too much damage was done. The synthetic oil surely helped me out some I'm sure.
I am planning on changing the oil again in 2 weeks just to make sure I get all of the gas out of the system. My oil pressure is great right now so I am not really worried about it too much. I do plan on going back to synthetic on the next oil change. I am sold on the stuff. My sister-in-law owns a shuttle service and has 2 full size Ford vans(V-10s) with over 700,000 miles on them! She just had to pull both engines cause 2 spark plug holes are stripped out on one and the other had the same thing with only one stripped out. She is only swapping out the heads and slapping them back in. She also ran a 460 for 600,000 miles until it dropped a valve. The bottom end was still good on it, so she swapped heads and has another 100,000 on the engine so far!
Synthetic costs a lot more, but if you plan on keeping the vehicle, it is well worth the money.
