^^ funny, but it's a legitimate question. I may have to make a thread on this. It's not a question of oil level, it's a question of the exact oil type used..

I do find it funny that Ford's diagnostic results (their best guess) came back as a melted through piston caused by an extremely over-RICH condition from a stuck open injector. lol.
