I just did an oil change in my 1985 300TD Wagon and I noticed that the oil turns dark within a few miles of driving. The technician assured me that in diesel engines the occurence is normal and he sees it all the time. He suggested the engine flush liquid which apparently cleans junk in the engine (done when the old oil is drained and before new oil is poured in). Please tell me that he is right. What would cause this to happen? I thought that oil changes color over time but in my 260E W124 that happens over 4000-5000 miles from the oil change and the oil still remains lighter color then.

P.S. It was -10 this morning with -30 wind chill and after two glow cycles and not being pluged in she started on me the first try!!!
