At 10k service dealer changed oil and did an

At 10k service for '07 2500 sprinter diesel dealer changed oil and also performed an emissions recall that required some form of reprogramming the computer. two days later HI oil warning on dash came on while driving on freeway. dealer said bring it in immediately and they would drain out some oil. dealer said they removed 0.5 qt. since then power level is ok but engine makes a whine sound on decelleration. could this be related to either the oil level overfill issue or emissions reprogramming?

The reprogramming preformed is due to a fault in the EGR valve causing faulty actuation. The actuation of the valve prevents soot acumulation in the valve. excessive soot build up could cause the valve to stick. the reprogramming preformed is to prevent this... as for the whine.. I dont think this would be a result of the reprogram.. best of luck

My engine oil was changed by the RV dealer where I bought he 2007 Winnebago View with a 5 cylinder diesel. The oil is "black" and not clear like I am used too. Is that normal? Also if I have to...

If it is a cummins engine use Shell Rotella oil 15/40. This is what cummins recommends. Use the same if a mercedes engine. Black oil in a diesel is normal so don't worry.
