Hey all!


I changed the oil in my truck for the first time this past weekend (@ 5000 mi) and everything went smoothly. I used Delo 400 15w-40, and noticed something odd while pouring one of the gallon jugs into the truck. When the jug was near-empty, the oil coming out was creamy-colored, like it had water or something in it. I had plenty of oil, so I didn't put (alot) of that crap in the truck, though probably a half-pint or so got down the spout.


Anyone seen this in Delo 400? Looked like a water-emulsion to me (I work alot with industrial vacuum pumps, and water-in-oil is a common problem.) My main question though is, should I worry about this? If it's just water, it should work itself out of the oil once it gets hot. At least that's what happens in oil-sealed rotary piston vacuum pumps.


Any guideance would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I would save the container and giver Chevron a call. I'm sure they would like to know if a contaminated batch got out.


Might get some free oil out of it too.


Hey, the 800 number is free. You have nothing to lose.
