Has anybody heard of this and does it apply to the 6.5?
I read about this on another forum as an explanation of how diesel fuel gets into your crankcase oil.
"Wet stacking is when unburned fuel stacks on top of the piston and drools down the sides into the crankcase oil. It is common when idling for over 15 minutes at regular idle speed. Service vehicles which are called on to idle for long periods have a high rpm idle switch to bump the engine to 1200rpm. Supposedly, this effectively eliminates wet stacking."
The only thing wrong with doing nothing is you never know when you're finished.
