Ouch, that sucks, however, I would have told the mechanic he's drunk for that $$$. I can get a new engine for $8k and installed for $1500.... I have 30,000 miles on my warranty (WAP aftermarket warranty, was told its the best to have), what filtering process did u use??
WMO is just filtered oil and reused in the engine? I asked in another thread and got ignored.
Sorry to hear you did not get an answer to your WMO question. I joined this forum because a friend is a die hard Ford guy, he wanted me to share my experience using WMO on my new truck (2012 3500 Ram). It was new, now it has 26K running on WMO. Initially I was using a three stages filtering system with 3-5 days settling, the final stages was a 2 micron bag filter. I was doing that until I discovered somthing alarming after I mixed a batch and ended up seating around for several days before I pumped it into the truck. I found heavier setiments at the bottom of the tank. Hence I decided to investigate on centrifuge (they are pricy), tested two and found I like the indirect driven system better than the direct motor drive style.
I got one from PA Bio, the system works off a 55 gal drum. Pumps the oil from the bottom and use the pressure to drive the centrifuge, the clean oil returns to the same drum. This system you can turn it on and leave it while doing yard work, hence hours later the oil has passed through several hours and much cleaner.
If you want more detail on how people using the process, visit the alternative fuel section.
TurboLs1 - would you continue to burn WMO if the cylinder didn't blow??
The Ford dealer is full of 6.4 with dead cylinders and cavitated timing covers and a plethora of other issues and all using pretty clean diesel fuel from the fuel station.

Hey everyone, just wanted to offer an update as I have run about 1500 miles on WMO in my 2008 F450 now. I use a WVODesigns Raw Power Extreme centrifuge to process, and have no DPF or cat on my truck and everything is running good so far. Almost all of the 1500 miles were driven pulling either a 32' gooseneck or a 18' equipment trailer. I have had between 6,000 and 10,000 pounds on the trailers all week running a WMO blend. For more complete info on my truck, how it runs, the processing, etc; read my webpage dedicated to running WMO. I will try to offer updates here as I put more miles on the truck. Thanks again guys.
