My dipstick looks just like the one shown in Balla6.7 pictures. Is anyone getting an oil analysis to see if excessive fuel is getting in the oil during the regen process? Sure would be nice if Ford would correct the problem with the dip stick.

hard to read dipstick

try removing your dipstick and leaving it out for a while, so all the residual oil can drain out of dipstick tube.

I have been struggling to read the Dipstick since I got my truck. I have the Cable style dipstick. I can see oil about 1/4-1/2 then there is oil at the very top and all the way up the cable portion of the dipstick. Its impossible to read. Any other dipsticks that are easier to read like the old 7.3L?
I’m a mechanic and struggling with this as well . The dip tube tube is a bad design .

Me too! Can’t read that idiotic dipstick. I’ve resorted to just slipping it in till o-ring seal just above the tube, not fully inserted. Then try to read it.

Heck if level down by say 2 qts, especially with 13 qts in it, is it really that low?
