Wow! ‘Sorry about your problems. I can’t help you with your no start problem. There are some very knowledgeable folks here that I’m sure will be glad to help. I CAN tell you that black engine oil, even new oil, is fairly common in Diesel engines. A big part of that is the detergents that keep impurities suspended in the oil instead of allowing the gunk to build up on the engine’s internals. If you are still concerned about the black oil you can send a sample to Blackstone Labs for an analysis. That should put your engine oil fears to rest.
Good luck with your starting problem. Please let us know how this works out for you.
