Help!! "06 5.9 oil discharge thru breather tube

My '06 is dumping lots of oil, (12 to 18 qts) between changes thru the breather tube. Initially was thought to be a leak at 92,000 miles. Called dealer and informed him as I was out of town, got back at over 100,000 warranty and dealer conveniently didn't remember the call. Chrysler says too bad, out of warranty. A local diesel shop diagnosed a bad turbo. After a week of extremely poor service and missing parts from Turbonetics, and $2000.00 in parts and labor the new turbo is installed and the problem is not changed. The local shop has diagnosed high crankcase pressure, but doesn't know why. There is no evidence of oil in the coolant or vice versa. The truck runs fine and has no power loss or smoke, just the entire underside is covered with oil and visible smoke and pressure from the breather tube.

you havent puked an injector and the diesel is overfilling your crankcase and causing the blowby?


If not I hate to say the only other think it could be is a bad ring or two or burnt piston

You might want to do a search. There is a thread on here about a pressurized crankcase or something similar. I just ran across it a couple of days ago and there was someone that knew a quite a bit about what to do.

Quick check......pull out your dipstick and take a whiff of the oil in the crankcase. If it has a strong diesel odor then he's right, injector leak. I didn't even think of it but now that I remember right, someone had the same problem.

Latest guess by 2 performance diesel shops in the area is that the valve guides are shot??? Still waiting on a way to get a more accurate diagnoses before letting them throw in any more unneeded expensive parts. There is no fuel in the crankcase, just oil that leaves at a rapid rate thru the breather tube. No performance or smoke issues either, just oil blowby. Does valve guides make sense to any of you?

Unhappy 05 Dodge Cummins Breater oil leak

I have a Dodge 2500 4x4 cummins with 15 k miles that just had an oil change and within 200 miles has blown over 2 quarts of oil out the breater tube. I am scheduled to see the dealer next Tuesday so I'll find out what might be the problem and report back.
