If foaming was an issue with the 7.3L we would see a lot more silicone in oil samples than we do. Anti-foam additives are silicone-based since silicone sheds moisture and moisture is the real cause of foaming. You hear a lot of things, especially on the internet, but we don't think oil foaming is an issue for this type diesel or any other type we are familiar with.What do the experts of TDS think? Is foaming an issue? Should a complete engine oil analysis include some measure of the resistance to foaming properties of the oil?
