It maybe oil additives settling in the pan. They will also stick to the oil cap.

Only way I know of to get mud to the pan. is pour it in. Or theres a hole in the block.

He must use one of those new snorkel kits, instead of suckin' air through the cabin it just uses high octane mud from the ground for some boost!

Yeah, if your truck is still running I highly doubt there's mud in your oil pan.


Are you seeing junk on the dip stick or under the oil filler cap?

Am I the only one suspicious here? It was his first post, only post, and the implication is one that's highly flawed to begin with.
