SOURCE: 83 Ford F350 Diesel Dually Smoking from oil

I have an old IDI 6.9 diesel. They tend to burn oil, and that would be normal. Just keep a check on your fluids, and unless the smoke is excessive it should not be a problem. I must say though, I personally think the IDI's were the best diesels ever built. They last forever. If you really want to treat your truck to a nice treat, after you fill your tank, dump a quart of auto trans fluid in the fuel. The additives, cleaners,and lubricants in the trans fluid really help to clean all the carbon and build up out of the injection pump, and clean the gunk from the valves and cyllinders. I usually do it every other month or so.

1984 4X4 V8. It has a pre-80's dipstick tube on driver's side and in the eng block. I tried a 19 & 21 dipstick and neither one shows a reading. Is it dry?

The only way to know for sure is to remove the oil pan drain plug and drain the oil. Then refill the engine with the correct amount of oil. Then see what the dipstick reads. You might want to invest in the right dipstick tube and stick as one to short will cause you to overfill the engine and one to long will cause you to short the engine on oil and burn it up.

Explorer Dipstick Tube Broke

There is a bracket that holds the tube to the block. There is no clips or retainers that hold it in the block. With the bracket loose you can twist and remove from the block. There is a oil ring on the end of the tube.
Sometimes the old tube is hard to remove...due to rust and corrosion. Spray the tube with a good penetrating oil before you start. Try to wiggle and twist the tube to brake it careful, the tube is thin. If the tube breaks off flush with the block..the piece that in the block will need to get extracted out or remove the oil pan and remove it that way.

Oil dipstick tube

On my girlfriend's 93 (same generation), it's right in front, between the two middle exhaust manifold runners. You should see a hole in the heat shield, and the dipstick handle is right there. If the dipstick is missing, look through that hole with a flashlight and you'll see the tube there.
