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.
