I should look into it though especially if I'm going to try doing the rural king discount diesel oil.
Its good enough oil, especially if you're using a gallon every 5000 miles.

Once in a while I splurge on Rotella if its on MEGA-sale.

I have one of those hand pumps.. all i can say is leave your oil out in the sun before you try to put it in and the and that pump isnt bad.. otherwise its sore-arm muscles.. (esp for a 137 lb weakling like me lolol)

If itís a Navistar 6 Cyl 466 or 530. The rear main seals go out at 145,000 miles. I have a fleet of Navistar a- itís just a thing that happens. $1800 repair at the dealer.

If its a T444E, it could be the seal where the dipstick goes through the side of the oil pan. Mine had a major leak there. Had a dealer repair it for $500 and it lasted for a month or so. I ended up cleaning it up real good with brake cleaner then slathering it with Right Stuff by Permatex. It's been dry for several years now. Cost me about 20 bucks for 2 tubes of Right Stuff.
