I bought my truck 6 months ago with only 47,000 miles on it. It had sat for almost 4 years with a dead VP44. Before even starting or cranking the engine I changed the oil and filter. After running it for about 2,000 miles I started getting a very bad odor in the cab when I would stop at a stoplight or stop sign. Finally tracked the smell down to the engine oil. Starts getting that horrible stench around 2,000 miles or so. Any ideas on what it possibly is? Planning on getting oil analysis done as soon as I can get the trans problem taken care of and start driving it again.

Oil level stays the same. Dinosaur based Rotella. I am a diesel technician and have only found other engines with the same smell in them that have EGR systems, but not everyone of them. Some of them were even running synthetic oil. :banghead:

Quit using ROSMELLA and the problem will go away. Try some Delo.

I am guessing you have had this problem before from that response. :lmao: I'll give Delo a try next time I change it, with your mileage I can't say it isn't good oil.

I was going to say also that certain oils have a definate smell. I run amsoil and it REALLY has a smell to it for about 5K miles before it wears off.
