I can't figure out what would have caused the oil to turn into this, and why it goes back to normal when you heat it up. I don't see any steam come off, so I don't think there is water it in. But the vehicle barely got driven, so maybe that's all it is?

My Dad owned a small repair shop and we would see Delo 400 trucks come in like this from time to time. We stored our bulk oil in a unheated building and at -10F the delo would come out in clumps and blobs. The Rotella would pour but was obviously thick. I have never been a fan of delo. I know lots of people run it without issue but I just never cared for what it looked like coming out and clumpiness when it would get cold. This was 20 years ago and I would have hoped they would have fixed this by now but maybe not?

I would switch brands. If I had oil come out like that at under 3k I wouldn't use it. Just my opinion though.

I'm thinking about it really strongly. In my truck, however, I've never had anything like that happen, including when the motor sat in a barn for 3 years while I acquired parts to build it.

I'm not sure if I should let someone else's one weird oil change put me off years of flawless service in all my vehicles. Still concerning...

This winner is in front of me, bouncing all over the road at 40 MPH.

Hard to see because my cell phone can't zoom for crap, but that's a single chain from one side of the trailer, over the 2" ball in his hitch, and to the other side. He then pinched it with a binder, causing it to kind of get a little tight. I'm staying way back, because that truck is bouncing all over. Hence the crappy photo.

I would get a sample of that oil sent off. Only time I have seen oil like that it was contaminated or ran way to long. Delo is a great oil, but I would defiantly want some answers on this. I've ran Dino Delo over 16K on my truck and the analysis didn't come back bad.

I did take a sample. I'll post the results. I've run as much as 12k on Delo 400 before I built my motor, and it always came back great as well.

Scary, hopefully he did a better job on the front end.

At least it's pulling towards the truck not away from it. I've seen them pulling away from the truck and you know it's just a matter of time before a bump and the chain pops off the ball.

This bad boy rolled through for an emissions test. Typical clapped out Dodge. Only need that one chrome tow mirror right? ? it also had an old Edge fueling box plugged in and just sitting on the floor mat where it looks like it's been kicked about 230 times.

I wish I could upload the video I saw on Facebook. Had a compilation of photos where people fixed their vehicles in some pretty obsurd ways. It would go perfectly in this thread.
